Darth Sidious was perhaps one of the most powerful, ruthless and successful Sith Lords the Jedi ever came across. Gaining his foothold in the Political arena by posing as both a Senator and later both as a Chancellor and an Emperor, Sidious, also known as Palpatine, was responsible for not only turning Anakin Skywalker to the dark side but also for nearly wiping out the entire Jedi population. His force powers and mind control were virtually unrivaled.

In my Opinion, Sam Witwer does it best, and Tim Curry is the Most Terrible one.

@Redeye How do you think that Tim Curry's version of Darth Sidious is "the Most Terrible one"?

@Redeye Dave Filoni- "We had an extensive search to find a new voice for Palpatine. It wasn't just a matter of finding an actor who could to recreate lines from the films. We needed someone to deliver a performance that could stand alongside what Ian McDiarmid and Ian Abercrombie created as this legendary Star Wars character. At the end of the day, there is little question that bringing in an actor of Tim's caliber was perfect for Chancellor Palpatine. I think fans will find that he delivers the eloquence needed for the Chancellor. His growling, evil, Sidious voice is a delight, because Tim can definitely tap into the dark side when needed. We are fortunate to have him."
