In Kingdom Hearts, Hercules and House of Mouse...why was Hades voiced by James Woods? I also discovered Rob Paulsen as one of his voices.

@jodmARTin Maybe because he voiced Hades in the original and is fine with coming back to reprise his role? xD

@jodmARTin Because it is his character. Originally they wanted Jack Nicholson but he was to pricey (Ironic considering Woods was originally considered for the Joker for the Burton Batman movie before they went with Nicholson ) .In fact once Woods was cast the entire character was overhauled from being a more traditional villain to behaving more like a Hollywood agent . He made the character as he appears in the Disney canon who he was. Also the reason James Woods reprises the role so much is he LOVES Hades.

Why are you surprised he plays the role ? Do you not like him or something ? Just curious

@MatthewC17 He was the singing voice, according to those eighth notes in the picture.

@Dogman15 For most of Hades' lines in House Of Mouse, except for two episodes where Hades was a main character, Disney recycled audio from Hercules The Animated Series. And for Hades' two lyrics of the "It's Our House Now" song in House Of Villains, it's very clearly Rob Paulsen.

@MatthewC17 Well...he does. But what is it about James Woods doing his voice?

@jodmARTin Implying something's wrong with that? Nothing wrong with James clearly enjoying the role and reprising it all the time, Rob did the signing cause James was't available or because it fit better.

@pete I wonder what Corey Burton would sound like voicing Hades but doing his Christopher Lee interpretation voicing Hades?

@jodmARTin Would be fine if Cory Burton was playing a diffrent version of Hades, but would be a total betrayal if he was doing that for the Disney version, because Disney's Hades is more of a fast talking used car salesman then a traditional scary villain . Honestly I cant imagine anyone who could replace James Woods (I mean Rob Paulson did it ,but he he just sang one line,and honestly as much as I LOVE Paulson ,it wasnt a perfect impersonation )
