Voice of Smaug?

Who do you think should voice Smaug in the upcoming Hobbit films? I think Richard Boone did a great job in the old Rankin-Bass cartoon, so I hope they get someone like that.

Agreed. Boone did an excellent job voicing Smaug. The new movie will be lucky if they can obtain a performance of that calibre.

I hope they don't get Liam Neeson. sure he would do an awesome job, but he seems tho be the defacto voice for everything.

My vote: Avery Brooks!

Well since Del Toro was involved in the pre-production, it very clearly must be Ron Pearlman! He would be perfect.

I agree that the Rankin-Bass cartoon voice was absolute perfection. All those voices have always been my definitive voice of the characters.

Peter Serafinowicz, he was the voice of Darth Maul in SW:TPM. I think he would bring a menacing but eloquent voice to the role. Not the typical super deep voice bur deep enough to be outstanding.

Micheal Clarke Duncan would be great for the voice of Smaug.

Somehow, I don't think that would have the desired effect.
