False Face

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

False Face is one of the lesser known members of Batman's Rogues Gallery whom made his comic book debut in Batman #113 in February of 1958. False Face is a good old fashioned villainous "Master of Disguise" as he can mimic someone's voice and mannerisms perfectly and he can imitate guards and/or famous people just to steal a lot of money. False Face's true identity is unknown as he is almost always wearing a mask even when he is not impersonating someone (though he is generally known as a normal person who is really good at disguises). In the comics False Face has only appeared occasionally to face off against Batman in which he manages to escape Batman's grasp most of the time but nowadays he is for the most part replaced by the far more known Batman Villain Clayface.

Today on the Batman VC section we take a look at one of the lesser known foes in Batman's Rogues Gallery... FALSE FACE! Let us begin...

Townsend Coleman- While Townsend's voice for the role is decent as it does work with a seemingly normal guy whom also happens to be a shape-shifter. But still Townsend's performance does suit on how False Face is a fairly opportunistic criminal and this is a somewhat interesting change of pace for his work. So in other words its a pretty good example of Townsend's work and of the voice work in the show.

Corey Burton
- Corey's somewhat rough voice does work for the role pretty well as he does try to play the role as a good old fashioned comic book villain pretty well even if his work does come off as kind of generic. But to be fair while False Face appeared in a few episodes of the series he only had a couple of lines in one episode so its not like Corey had all that much to work with here. But still its a decent example of Corey's voice work in the show but certainly not one of his better performances.

Overall neither of these guys are perfect but they are not bad but I will go with Townsend a bit more (even if it is because he had a little bit more material to work with here.).

Going with Townsend Coleman on this one: the more normal voice he does is something you wouldn't expect False Face to have because of his deformed appearance, so I find it interesting for that reason.

Corey Burton's voice matches the appearance of False Face more, but I feel it's a little more superficial based only on the appearance for that very reason.

I'm going with Corey since he makes False Face sound crazy evil.

Townsend just sounds rather like your average henchman type of guy.

Corey Burton. Townsend sounds kind of bland.

Both are good as False Face, but I'm gonna go with Townsend Coleman.

@GothamRed I actually think Burton sounds less generic. Usually it's his 'voice of god' voice but not here.

@Aquafox84 well less generic for burton, but I meant that it's less generic gangster and more natural sounding
