I would personally love to see him do a voice as the bad guy in a Barbie movie. Since they have used Tim Curry, Martin Short, and Kelsey Grammer as bad guys in some of the Barbie movies.

Happy Birthday John Hurt.

I haven't seen enough of his work but he was just perfect as Professor Broom in Hellboy.

I haven't seen The Black Cauldron but from what I have heard of his Horned King, it does sound very haunting.

John Hirt is my favorite actor, and my inspiration. While John Merrick & Quentin Crisp & Doyle (Lou) are my favorite screen roles of his, I think his portrayal of Snitter is the greatest voice over performance ever. It made me cry, and was so- real. Long live the legendary John Hurt!

@SmartyBoyboy In the behind the scenes stuff of The Day of the Doctor he said: "I've never done anything like this." and then you watch the episode and it looks as if he has been doing this for years.

The way The Horned King's voice sounds in the English Version is VERY haunted sounding! His haunting voice and the way he turned out makes me feel like I'm going to fade away!

@Aurora The Japanese voice, Shozo Iizuka, is even scarier.
