The Voice of Smaug?

Post#1 » Mon Jun 22, 2009 5:09 pm

Something to think about were you the casting director: As Smaug will undoubtedly be computer generated graphics, who should do his voice, a well known actor or singer, or a relatively unknown? Should Smaug have an English accent or an eastern European one?

What's your pleasure, any ideas of someone who would be a sure-fire candidate?

(Laughing) I guess I hadn't thought of Smaug as female :) Sean Connery did the voice of the dragon in Dragonheart well so he was my first thought but maybe somebody with a more gritty, evil voice would be better. Just my thought. Maybe Springsteen?

Should be someone with a deep voice, like Sam Elliott (Lee Scoresby in The Golden Compass and many cowboy movies).

How about Kenneth (Ken) Campbell who played Mr. Crump in the 2008 made for TV version of Miss Marple: A Pocket Full of Rye? He has a good scary low voice.

Sean Connery already did a dragon voice in Dragonheart.

Or maybe the voice of the dragon Wushu from Mulan.

English accent please, and I hope it is absolutely no one we know, someone new and fresh.
