How did Todd Haberkorn manage to sound almost exactly like Don Franck's Mok Swagger as this character?

@Galactic_Cyrus I have to hear that now!

@Metabad Seriously, listening to the Mok Swagger clip on Don Franck's page and the Rowen J Ilbert clip on Todd Haberkorn's page one after the other is just eerie.

@Galactic_Cyrus Oh wow, you're exactly right! That is surreal.

@Galactic_Cyrus Also, I brought this up to PsychicVoiceSpy already, but... I think this guy would've made for a great singing voice for Mok, he sounds closer to Don Francks than either Lou Reed or Iggy Pop. As much as I enjoyed their songs, their voices weren't very consistent with Don's. I think this guy has a sort of Don Francks sound to his voice while having Lou Reed's energy, probably the best of both worlds.

@Metabad That DOES sound like Don Francks' Mok! Though between the singing voices he has, Iggy Pop sounded closer than Lou Reed, who quite frankly sounded NOTHING like the character. I imagine that maybe, since "My Name Is Mok" was an acid sequence, Lou Reed's voice was Mok's singing voice in his younger glory days, but Iggy Pop is how his singing voice sounds now.

@Galactic_Cyrus Yeah, agreed there. I love both their songs in the movie and they both fit Mok perfectly in their own way, that said Iggy Pop definitely sounded more consistent with Don Franck's voice, although Lou Reed did have more energy and had one of the most memorable songs from the movie, so it's kinda hard for me to fault him.

You do raise a good point on the idea of Lou Reed being his voice from his younger years, I actually never thought about it that way before, but it makes a lot of sense now that I think about it. There was also that "Triumph" sequence that had Lou Reed's voice, but Mok's current appearance in the hologram at times. Using that theory he could have recorded that song in his earlier years as well, but maybe made some of the holograms in that later on.
