15 Actors With Incredible Speaking Voices

Darth-Vader-Star-Wars-465x274

Sometimes a movie is only worth watching for its stars, and sometimes a star is not only memorable for his or her performance but for how amazing his or her voice sounds. When you think about how many actors there are out there, there aren’t too many whose voices you’d recognize in about two seconds. Also, there aren’t that many where you’d particularly mention how much you like their voices. Here I’ve listed 15 of my favorite actor voices. Hope you enjoy….

Morgan Freeman

The king of narration, period.

Alan Rickman

When you needed scary, creepy, and all around weird, look no further than Professor Snape.  RIP.

James Earl Jones

Darth Vader. Enough said.

Vincent Price

Uncle Vinnie wasn’t just the voice of horror for his generation, he was also the face of Creamettes macaroni and that scary laugh in the Thriller video.

Tim Curry

Did you ever hear his voice in Legend? Amazing. That and Rocky Horror Picture Show. He could go really deep when he wanted to.

Jean Reno

When Reno speaks English, he manages to blend a ‘how you say’ uncertainty with a deep sense of confidence and wisdom. Plus his voice is incredibly deep.

Kathleen Turner

Kathleen-Turner-kathleen-turner-11462261-1024-768-465x348

One of modern cinema’s most famous female voices, Turner trained her voice lower by learning to talk with erasers stuck between her teeth.

Sidney Poitier

Poitier makes you feel like you’re in school and he’ll whack you if you don’t pay attention to him

Alec Baldwin

You can’t make a list like this without Baldwin. His voice is on everything these days, as it should be. It’s a raspy and unmistakable voice that will always be recognized.

Sam Elliott

If you need a “man’s” voice then Elliott is always your guy. He’s the king of rugged.

Samuel L. Jackson

If you need a guy to yell, he’s your man. And he’s hilarious while doing it.

Al Pacino

Scarface_Pacino__111129232126-465x310

Oh yeah, if you need another guy to yell, he’s your man.

Christopher Walken

Christopher-Walken-465x330

Honestly I can’t even describe Walken’s voice, I just know it’s awesome. His scene in Pulp Fiction is the epitome of what I’m talking about.

Gene Hackman

csp_hackman_making_point

United Airlines! I so miss Gene Hackman. He retired way too long ago.

Malcolm McDowell

malcolm-mcdowell-caligula

The narration in A Clockwork Orange is all you need to know.

*Honorable Mention – Kevin Spacey, James Spader
