The Voice Actor Question, revisited  
Whilst looking for an old post, I found one from about three years ago that might do with revisiting:

When they make an animated movie of FurryMUCK / Second Life / The Internet / Your Favorite Tabletop RPG, who should voice your character?

Think of this as one of those "Writer's Block" questions they put up on the LJ Home Page.

I may make it part of the character creation process in my future tabletop games.

I'm still sticking with Kelsey Grammer for Athelind.

I feel: busybusy

Well, my primary one anymore... Well, Jason Marsden is kind of a no-brainer there. ;)

But for the dragony one... Hmm. I'm looking at my answer from back then... Eh, a vaguely Bonkers/Darkwing Jim Cummings that's been vocoderized to sound metalically resonant is still a good choice.

I'd have to go with Michael Clarke Duncan

...for the dragon, not the otter, right?

Gah! That's who I'd pick for Dracono. :D

For my LambdaMOO persona they'd have to get William Hartnell, Patrick Troughton, Jon Pertwee, Tom Baker, Peter Davison, Colin Baker, Sylvester McCoy, Paul McGann, Christopher Eccleston and David Tennant.

Orlando Bloom. Unless it's Eggshell, in which case John Kricfalusi, who voiced Ren of Ren and Stimpy.

Ah, but who is your #1 pick for the Baron Niktopolion?
Your Obedient Serpent: clawathelind on June 19th, 2008 11:09 pm (UTC)
Despite the fact that I instinctively DROPPED my voice a half-octave to play Lord Nik, I've gotta go with David Hyde Pierce.
Rikoshi Kisaragi: 27rikoshi on June 19th, 2008 11:23 pm (UTC)

That's about the only time I'd be able to believe David Hyde Pierce with not just one, but two women on his arm. Er, wing.

Believe it, indeed.

And neither of them Mavis.

I have NO idea, really.

I don't know. I guess someone who sounds exactly not like me. I'd like someone ordinary-ish, Bruce Willis maybe- but my pedantic nasal tone in real life is more akin to the adults on the Peanuts animated specials, or maybe Don Knots.

Do you get the idea I don't like my voice? Does it surprise you? :D

Huh. Maybe Christy Carlson Romano (Kim Possible) for Sofia, I haven't really given it enough thought!

Brian Blessed as the voice of Reveille D'Giovanetti!

Spelling Correction
You mean...

Big lungs, man!

Hmm... Steve Irwin is out of the question now so I'd have to go for some obscure local voice talents, like Rove McManus, John Clarke or Hugh Jackman.
McGuffinhitchkitty on June 20th, 2008 02:39 am (UTC)
Well, if I'm playing the kitty in a waspish mood, and he were still available, I'd want Chris Latta. Since he's no longer with us, perhaps I'd go with Frank Welker; fellow children of the 80s (and the toy-ad cartoons thereof) will appreciate the irony.

If the kitty has had too much caffeine, then possibly John Moschitta.

And of course, if the kitty is being flamboyantly wicked, the only choice is Tim Curry.

As for my tabletop RPG character, a fencing cat named Erestan Vano, I think Mandy Patinkin would do nicely.

There shall be no voice other than James Earl Jones.

A.R.M.: Bullwinklekinkyturtle on June 20th, 2008 08:27 am (UTC)
Anyone from history? Jim Henson.

Anyone currently alive? Whatever voiceover artist does the best Bullwinkle voice.
Reverend Raffertynormanrafferty on June 20th, 2008 05:57 pm (UTC)
Curtis Armstrong.
Ursula Messerschmitt: Bear-Flower-bearsnobahr on June 21st, 2008 07:47 pm (UTC)
Conchata Ferrell, hands down.

chronovius thinks Anjelica Huston would be a good choice for Ursula, as well.
