In honor of The Avengers : Age of Ultron and its honey voiced villain, James Spader, I now present, the sexiest men’s voices on screen. Shallow? Sure! But I don’t care. Make your own list of sexy. This ones mine.
So, apparently it’s okay for guys to love certain books, movies and TV shows because they loooove the ladies, so it’s perfectly okay for me to geek out about my favorite guys.(Which is why I will be watching 300 again, next week.)
And sometimes you don’t even need to have a plot or anything. Sometimes all you need is a mellifluous, soothing, or sometimes, a gravelly voice, in a movie.
Granted, his voiceover work for The Iron Giant was not at all sexy but he made up for that by rumbling his way through a succession of Action movies, thereby establishing his Sexy Guy Cred, in perpetuity.
James Earl Jones:
Morgan is so famous for his voice, that he could just read his grocery list, and we would watch the Hell out of that.
I do have to be absolutely fair in admitting, that there’s not one Japanese actor who DOESNT have a sexy voice. Well, okay I do like Japanese men, but that’s totally beside the point!
Okay, now go back in time and watch Wolf. Ignore the mournful voice of Jack Nicholson and listen to the soothing tones of werewolf villain, James Spader, as he croons menacingly to Michelle Pfeiffer. I have never wanted to be so threatened by a pretend bad guy.
This man is everywhere, so no list would be complete without him. He’s not getting hired solely on the basis of his looks, although those are perfectly acceptable.
It’s the accent! Definitely the accent!
Jason could talk to me all day, every day, even if he never cracks a smile.
Think James Earl Jones with a British accent, and then go back and watch Pacific Rim, just for the speech.
There’s a reason he keeps getting hired for voiceover work for insurance ads and it is not his demeanor. We will buy whatever Mr. Haysbert tells us to buy.
Has an extraordinarily smooth voice, even if he always sounds as if you shouldn’t take anything he says seriously.
Is the voice of Thor! Now unto forever, there will never be another Thor.
Ah yeah, I don’t know what accent that is, either.
I’ve loved his voice since he played Bishop in Aliens. It’s so soothing that sometimes you don’t even have to watch his movies, just listen to them.
Honorable Mentions: I couldnt make this list without including any of these actors. If you are watching a movie, just to hear the actor’s voice, its probably one of these guys.
And a Special Honorable Shoutout award goes to:
He is the least sexy looking man in any movie, but you would not know that, when hearing those dulcet, sardonic tones.
And a belated shout out to:
I love Zachary Quinto, but that’s just not the mellifluous voice of Spock. Nope!
I’m pretty sure I left out someone who is really working for you, so feel free to show your love, in the comments.
