  • The Best (and Worst) Candlelight Narrators

    So, Hubster and I were discussing this year's Candlelight narrators and naturally started to throw out names of other actors that would suit. Then, we naturally began throwing out names of actors that wouldn't suit.

    I naturally knew that this had to be a Micechat thread.

    Hubster votes for Patrick Stewart. I vote for Ian McKellen.
    As for who we wouldn't vote for...Hubster says Christopher Walken; he would frighten the children...and many adults. I say Keanu Reeves; dreamy, yes, but an excellent reading voice, no.

    Who would you vote or not vote for?

    Best: Peter Cayote - Best voice over actor that everyone knows, yet no one remember's his name. Why? Cuz, you are not distracted by his celebrity...

    Worst: "Bobcat" Goldwaith. You are WAY discracted by his celebrity... Repulsed even...

      Okay I've never seen it BUT for reading voice - I would say Helen Mirran or Julie Andrews

      For NOT reading I'd have to say Al Pacino or Antonio Banderas - Now I like Al Pacino and I think he's an exciting actor (favortie movie is Searching for Richard) BUT I don't see him in the spot for this -

          For best: I agree with what's been said above, just want to add James Earl Jones.
          Worst: Larry the Cable Guy & Eddie Murphy; both are funny comics, but so are there voices.

            Hubster mentioned Al Pacino, too! All I could think was...

              Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, James Earl Jones, Keith David (goliath from gargoyles) would all be my top choices.


              worst: Kevin Federline, Jessica Simpson, Brittney Spears, Snoop Dogg, ....basically any pop star or rapper.

                I all I think of for Larry the Cable Guy is 'My name is Mater, like Ta Mater without the Ta' LOL

                You know that Larry the Cable Guy is extremely educated and has no accent - I saw an interview and had to do a double take cause Larry was as normal as you and I

                  Yeah, i've heard that, but I also have a hunch he wouldn't dare be in a public event at DL and not have his accent.

                    I bet he is going to live to hate that one day...

                    He might even be hating it already...

                    But you know it is difficult to do a "dumb" character when you have an expansive vocabulary that is well educated? It ain't easy...

                      Re: The Best (and Worst) Candlelight Narrators

                      Best: Christian Bale and Ioan Gruffudd, LOVE the sound of their voices and totally undistracted by celeb status.

                      I agree on Keanu. Good enough actor (when in the right kind of role) but I wrote a WHOLE paper on how he could improve and the main thing was that he NEEDS a speech therapist. He would have a lovely voice if not for the remnants of the Bill & Ted speech pattern.

                      Ian McKellan is also a good choice. Great voice, but a tad too Twilight Zone-ish for me in terms of mixing stuff I like.

                      Worst: LINDSAY LOHAN! PARIS HILTON! CELEBUTANTS (celebrity debutants, it's a trendy new word that fits) ANYONE who is a fad or is famous based on their tabloid talent and not their below-par skills. George Clooney and Brad Pitt also fall into this category. I could go on for ages...

                        how about that guy from DIRTY JOBS on Discovery Channel...Mike Rowe???
                        He has a great voice....he does a lot of voice over on Discovery.

                          Best voices: Gotta agree with James Earl Jones and Patrick Stewart

                          Worst voice: By far......Gilbert Godfried

                            One of my favorites. I have loved him since E.T. He has a great voice.

                              One of the worst, who was actually a narrator from several years ago, was Edward James Olmos.

                              Now...at first glance, you would think he'd be awesome.

                              But the man LURCHED off of the script, fumbled more than a few lines, and then made several extemporaneous comments that SORT of related to the script...and sort of didn't. :blink:

                              Nearly killed the conductor and several of the Disney suits in charge of the show.


                              On the other hand, one of the BEST narrators I've ever heard read for Candlelight was Michael York.
