    A lot of celebrities out there have pretty cool sounding voices; James Earl Jones, the late Jack Buck, Patrick Warburton.

    Focus: If you could have someone else's voice, who would it be and why?

    I think I would choose George Clooney. He has a very cool, calm voice that sounds like he is in control in any situation. Growing up I always wanted to be him in the movies he acted in. So yeah, Clooney. Or Darth Vader.

    Morgan Freeman, doubt I need to explain that one. Although it might be weird to have the voice associated with an older black guy as a young white dude.

    Let's get Clint Eastwood out of the way right now, too. There is nothing that man can say that isn't intimidating.

    Ian McShane as Al Swearengen. The tonal quality in this performance is fucking perfect.

    Don LaFontaine is THE voice of all time. He is the voice of the almighty, with Hal Douglas running a close second (this is so funny it's retarded):


    Also, Matt Berry. What a voice. "Hyperdramatic" doesn't begin to describe pipes like that:

    I’d pick the smooth talking and charismatic Esteban from Kill Bill 2:

    I get compliments on my own voice, and think about how various voices sound a lot.

    For me, there's a clear answer; Paul Harvey. I would kill to sound like that. Even in this clip, recorded when Harvey was already in his 80s, he sounds incredible;

    I'm not going to argue that Clint Eastwood isn't a badass or that he doesn't have an awesome voice for who he is, but there's no way in hell that I would want to sound like Clint Eastwood. His voice doesn't fit me at all. Plus, its cool when you use the Clint Eastwood voice to say badass shit, but I feel like ordering a sandwich in that voice would get old fast.

    A voice more like Jay from Clerks would be a better fit for me.

    I wish I could sound like Monica Bellucci. It's not entirely the accent, but also the tone I find almost soothing.

    Demi Moore.

    That throaty, hoarse "hang on while my vocal cords recover from having your cock bang against them" sound is something I'd totally love to have. I welcome colds and laryngitis in the winter just for this reason. And if I could have her non-accent as well, that would be awesome. I so want to replace my Mid-Atlantic, tinny, trashy drawl with something that knows that w-a-t-e-r is NOT pronounced "wooter" and that "home" is one fucking syllable. I want to punch myself every time I hear myself fall into that trap.
