Really, a lot of these names are unfamiliar? I know I picked a couple that others may not know of but... *shrugs*<P>Ah well, I'll clarify them for you:<P>Jason Alexander: Anyone watch Seinfeld? If so, you'd easily know him because he play's George. He's got a voice which is a perfect comedic blend of "hyper" and "Spazstic."
Since Robert is a character that uses catnip like it's a controlled substance, I thought that Alexander's voice would go well with him.<P>Laurence Fishburne: You might know him as Morpheus in "The Matrix" or Bubba in "Apocalypse Now." Either way, he's got a great voice that's both low, calm, and articulate. Anyway, it came down to either him or James Earl Jones, but the latter is better for giving speeches and lectures. And that just doesn't fit Jason, IMHO.
<P>Sean Connery: Well, y'all better know who he is.
I just picked him because I think Austin looks a little like a younger Connery.<P>Hugo Weaving: The more I think about matching him with Duke, the more I like it. Weaving played Agent Smith in "The Matrix" so I know he play the bad guy role. However, he's also the voice of Rex in "Babe," so he's got experience doing canine VO's.
<P>John Lithgow: A shot in the dark for Logan. I only picked him because Lithgow is both a memorable character actor, and he can play a goof as well.<P>Matt Doran: Didn't expect anyone to know him. Doran played Mouse in "The Matrix," so he's got that odd sense of humor, "Digital pimp hard at work," and a young voice to boot.<P>Billy Crudup and Claire Danes: Anyone who's seen "Princess Mononoke" should get why I had these two down for Rocky and Corky respectively...<P>Marty Grabstein: Anyone ever watch the show Courage the Cowardly Dog? Marty's the voice of Courage. I thought he'd be perfect for Tucker.
<P>Ralph Fiennes: A cultured, older voice. As far as animation goes, you may remember him as Moses from "Prince of Egypt." Since Ace is older than Blazer, I thought that he should have an older voice.<P>Jamie Kennedy: Played Randy in Scream. I figured that since he still had a teenager voice, he'd be good for Blazer who supposedly still acts like a teenager someties occording to his character bios.<P>Gilbert Gottfried: Yes, yes... he was Iago in "Aladdin." It seemed like a good choice at the time.
<P>Keith David: Arno, how can you say you're a Gargoyles fan and not know who Keith David is?
He's only the voice of Goliath. He's got a deep, rich voice that's slightly ominous sounding. Thought it was a good match for Shadow's character.<P>Jeff Bennett: Arno again, you're a Gargoyles fan bt you don't recognize the voice of Brooklyn... and Owen... and the Magus?
Plus, he's the voice of Johnny Bravo "oh man that's good," so he can do a wide range of voices. Could work well with Dakota.<P>Sam Neil: Dr. Grant from Jurassic Park. That's probably the role he's going to be remembered by.<P>Ellen Degeneres: Didn't like her show too much, but I love some of her stand-up comedy. Essentially she's a nutball, which is perfect for Brem, right?<P>Jenna Elfman: She's got a voice that can be both sweet and sarcastic at the same time. Seemed like a possible choice for Sandy. Anyone who watched early episodes of "Dharma and Greg" can vouch for me here... hopefully.
<P>Jada Pinkett Smith: You might know her as Tori from "Princess Mononoke." I think she was also in Scream 2. Like Jenna Elfman, her voice can be sweet and sarcastic at the same time, but it's much older sounding.<P>Carrie-Anne Moss: She's best known for her role as Trinity in "The Matrix." Kess, in her character bios, comes off as something of a bada** when her family is threatened, and Carrie-Anne Moss can pull off that role, IMHO.<P>Helen Mirren: Like John Lithgow, Mirren's a characer actor. I can't think of too many things you might remember her in expect "Prince of Egypt" and/or "2010." She's got a very string voice, and Misty comes across as a strong character. Hence, a potential joining of the two.<P>So that's all. Just a quick blurb on who these people are (for those who didn't recognize them) and why I picked them. Thoughts, changes, comments, suggestions. I'm just throwing out ideas here, people.
The scary thing is... I really don't watch much television.<P>
