Eastwood with a voice that has evolved over the years to sound like he gargles with sandpaper for fun thank you five feet high in Korea gives you four sandbags there’s no mistaking that this old cowboy means business and if you couldn’t get that from his gritty vocals then maybe his perpetually furrowed brow can help you out you see in this world there’s two kinds of people my friend that was with loaded guns number four Sean Connery where in the world are you James well I’ve just been reviewing an old case oh so I have an old case now am i it’s the office he was your mom’s and or grandma’s favorite sex symbol playing everyone’s favorite secret agent during the 60s bond James Bond it’s easy to see why with a decidedly Scottish lilt that is both charming and enviable it’s a Smith & Wesson and you’ve had your six if a glass of whiskey could talk he probably sound like this guy and we’d be fine with it except when he’s trying to bark out orders on a Russian submarine new Polish key then it’s just weird he’s number three Christopher Walken two little mice fell in a bucket of cream it’s hard to pinpoint what it is about his voice that we love so much maybe it’s the erratic enunciation did you make that up all by yourself or maybe it’s the Queens New York accent paired with his fairly consistent tone did you see the man upstairs Sandra did you talk to him we did send one we talked to the man whatever it is our ears can call it from a mile away there’s something enjoyably creepy about his vocal delivery that would let us get a kick out of him just reading the alphabet have some pride in yourself have some faith in Jesus Christ as your Lord and don’t tell me scum nothing number two James Earl Jones his deep baritone is hard to ignore not that you’d want to he’s voiced one of film’s greatest villains as well as one of its greatest lion dads sure did his voice is so booming and oppressive it’s mind-boggling to imagine that he had a debilitating stutter let alone that he didn’t speak whatsoever for almost a decade with a voice like his we probably never shut up but it’s just knock on the door I got it for you before we unveil our top pick here are a few honorable mentions you can’t close the Leeds you’re given you can’t close you are hit the bricks pal and beat it cuz you are going out I’ve had it with these mother snakes on this mother boy but if you don’t I will look for you I will find you and I will kill you captain we’ve got a level 1 radiation leak every surface of the ship is contaminated simply changing the air won’t do we better get the man eyes they never took out for any serious date why but that’s the way guys are I laugh when you talk dirty they think you’re cute laughter why you get a reputation that’s it you get no respect you understand come on in the house outside number 1 Morgan Freeman the millions of years they have made their home on the darkest driest windiest and coldest continent on earth and they’ve done so pretty much along so in some ways this is a story of survival somewhere between the Shawshank Redemption and march of the Penguins he became the de facto go-to for narration there must be a con like me and every prison in America I’m the guy who can get it for you cigarettes a bag of reefer if that’s your thing a bottle of brandy to celebrate your kids high school graduation then there anything within reason his Pleasant soothing voice has a paternal quality that makes it easy to get lost in his storytelling it’s a voice that can rock you to sleep and also recount the details of a horrific car accident without missing a beat prison time is slow time so you do what you can to keep going some fellas collect stamps others build matchstick houses Andy built a library it’s a quality that’s hard to find in most people let alone most actors but it’s more than that really this is a story about love do you agree with our list what male actor do you think has the most iconic voice we go around the country killing people who go around the country killing people like serial killer killer for more entertaining top 10s published every day be sure to subscribe to watchmojo.com do it you [Music]

  1. Go away Mojo forever. Please. Just don't show up again on my playlist. When I block you, stay blocked. Get real jobs. Stop producing this shite. Give us a break. Show some decency.

  2. I can’t believe they didn’t mention Sweeney Todd when they were talking about Alan Rickman. I mean the man is singing in a musical…

  3. A couple others that appear to be missing or candidates for Part Deux:
    1️⃣Christopher Lloyd
    2️⃣William Shatner

  4. And Peter Cullen who is the voice for Optimus Prime? He has the sexiest voice ever…and one of the deepest I have ever heard

  5. Snape NEVER wanted to kill Harry, he showed distain to a certain extent, but Snape’s undying love for Harry’s mother prevented him from ever wanting to cause actual harm to Harry. Snape was an anti-hero (but the actual hero along with Neville in my opinion). Snape died trying to protect Harry.

  6. Kevin Micheal Richardson, Kieth David, Steve Blum, Tony Jay and Clancy Brown in terms of having distinct voices I think should have been on this list even if many I mentioned primarily did voice acting.

  7. Orson Wells, Patrick Stewart, Peter Cullen, Frank Welker, Frank Oz, Mark Hamel, Christopher Lee, Ian McKellen, Sean Schemmel, Lenard Nemoy, William Shatner, George Takei. the list goes on and on.
