Carmine Falcone

Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Carmine Falcone with sound clips and images.
Franchise: Batman

Carmine Falcone is one of the various antagonists of the Batman franchise (and one of the few known normal/non-super villain ones) whom has been in the Batman comics since Batman #404 back in 1987. Carmine Falcon is a known Mafia Don in Gotham City whom is also known as "The Roman" in which he likes to affectionately refer his territory as "The Roman Empire". While Carmine is one of Batman's various foes he is also a foe of certain other members of Batman's Rogues Gallery namely Catwoman and Two Face (in which there are stories in which he played a part in why those two became who they are). Carmine Falcone is generally known for being in Batman stories where Batman was starting his career as a superhero and having a generally okay relationship with the Maroni family as he and Sal Maroni are former rivals.

Today on the Batman VC section we have a little look at this homage to the Godfather's Michael Corleone... CARMINE FALCONE! We shall actually begin with the video game based off of the Batman Begins movie in which Tom Wilkinson did reprise his role from the movie. While I admit I do think that Tom's performance was a bit more memorable in the movie than it was in the game but its still good though as it does suit the role fairly well and is a pretty good example of the voice-work in the game.

About 6 years later there was a direct adaptation of the Frank Miller comic Batman Year One with an animated movie of the same name in which Alex Rocco gets to take over the role here. In case if you didn't already know Alex Rocco has been playing men in the Mafia for decades now so in other words Alex is fairly familiar with roles like this and it shows pretty well here. Alex does try to go for a nice mix of gruffness and smoothness in his voice for the role which works out pretty well here. Alex's performance for the role also does suit on how Carmine is known as a charismatic smooth-talker but will generally be violent when things don't go his way and is a good example of the voice-work in Batman Year One. Overall I liked them both but I will go with Alex Rocco a bit more here...

Richard McGonagle will get my vote when he's added to the compare. Tom Wilkinson could have voiced any Gotham mobster and I wouldn't be able to tell the difference, whereas the late Alex Roco is miscast, I'm sorry to say. He sounds a little too old for The Roman.

Richard instantly clicked with me when I heard his performance, because it's the right age for Carmine, and the pitch is perfect. I also like his choice of accent, because it wasn't too over the top for the character.

While both haven't been added, both Richard McGonagle and the late Jon Polito (from what I've heard from the latter, which admittingly was limited to the promo video for Arkham Underworld featuring him) were also good.

Judging from the preview clip for Justice League Action, Jason J. Lewis also sounds good as Carmine.

From what I heard in the trailer for Telltale Batman, Richard McGongle makes a good first impression for Falcone

He is really good. My only problem is that, the entire time I was thinking, "Why couldn't he have been cast as Rupert Thorne?"

@Lpfan120 - ... now that you mention it, his voice would fit Thorne perfectly

The late Alex Rocco was a perfect match for Carmine Falcone. He fits this old school mafia crime boss perfectly. His performance is just fitting and screams this character. The only complaint is at the end of the clip, his delivery of BATMAN! was really forced and awkward. Otherwise his performance was a top notch effort. One of the few major standouts in Batman Year One.

Tom Wilkinson is a pretty solid fit for Falcone too. He definitely is one of the few actors reprising from Batman Begins to translate well into voice acting rather well to my surprise.

Still Alex Rocco gives the more distinctive and memorable voice and performance so I'll be going with him. RIP Alex Rocco.

BONUS: I could see Joe Mantegna being a great fit for Falcone.

Both do a great job but I'm going with Alex Rocco since he sounds more like a big crime boss than Tom.

Tom was still good but not as evil & menacing.

Definitely Alex Rocco. Whenever I think of Carmine Falcone, Rocco's performance springs to mind.

Alex Rocco is much more true to the original character than Tom.

I like Tom in this role, he may be a Live actor but he's actually not a bad VA too! He made Falcone sound like a real jerk, a totally unlikable gangster.

I also liked Alex too, though his voice was a little forced at some points, so Tom gets my vote here.

I'm gonna go with Alex Rocco.

I really liked Alex Rocco's Carmine until the final line. Still gonna give it to Rocco, mind you.

Alex Rocco really nailed the voice I imagined Carmine Falcone having when I read the comics, so I'm giving this one to him. That said, Tom Wilkinson was pretty good, too.

At the end of Rocco's clip he sounds a little forced so I gotta give it to Tom
