Voice Compare » Batman » Mr. Freeze

Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Mr. Freeze with sound clips and images.
Victor Fries was a brilliant scientist with a wife named Nora. Eventually Nora fell ill and left Victor with no choice but to cryogenically freeze her until a cure could be discovered. There was an accident, and then Victor became capable of living only in temperatures below zero. Victor donned a special, cold suit, took up the name Mr. Freeze and became an enemy of Batman. He fights using weapons that involve the cold, and is virtually emotionless.

Thanks to Foxwolf for DC Super Friends clip.

EDITOR'S OPINION

First off, I think the earlier ones (Lennie Weinrib and Ted Knight) were the weakest of these voices, Weinrib with that comical accent (though since Mr. Freeze was a less serious character back then, can't say I hold too much against him), and Ted Knight was somewhat generic. The other voice actors all brought in strong performances. Clancy Brown and Keith Szarabajka are deep yet fitting, and Eric Bauza isn't too shabby either. Considering his version seems to be more retro, John DiMaggio was the best of the "classic-style" Freezes for having an accent and yet not sounding goofy.  Out of all these voices, however, Michael Ansara stands out as the best. His performance was cold and robotic, fitting Freeze's bitter and emotionless personality. His voice really helped make "Heart of Ice" into a memorable episode. In the same spirit, Robert Kraft and Maurice LaMarche are both wonderful, reminding me very much of Ansara. I would rank them like so:

1. Michael Ansara
2. Maurice LaMarche
3. Robert Kraft
4. Keith Szarabajka
5. Clancy Brown
6. John DiMaggio
7. Eric Bauza
8. Ted Knight
9. Lennie Weinrib

I've got to go with Michael Ansara. He was just perfect for Freeze. I do like Clancy Brown and Keith Szarabajka, also. Clancy is playing a more sinister version and his voice fits that well. I kinda like Maurice LaMarche, though he sounds better with the helmet on. I assume that more robotic sound is him with the helmet. To be fair Ansara sounded a bit better with the helmet effects, too, but at first Maurice sounds a little iffy to me.

Now, now, now. This is comparing two different versions of Mr. Freeze: One sympathetic, and one that is a generic badass villain...I prefer the sympathetic one, so I will go with Michael Ansara (R.I.P.) and Maurice LaMarche as second....

As for the other take, I'm goin with Clancy Brown.

I'll start from worst to best.

Ted & Lennie didn't even fit.

I was disappointed that John didn't do as well as I had hoped as Freeze.

Eric & Townsend did ok.

Robert did well but sounds a bit too much like Batman, he must voice him in the future.

I really like Clancy & Keith's deep versions which made it very hard for me to pick a favourite (that's why I did it backwards because I was still considering a favourite) but in the end, my favourite has 2 be Michael since he really brought out the caring side of Freeze. RIP Michael.

Im going with Keith Szarabajka and Clancy Brown,i always say that a cold themed supervillain should have a deep voice to match

Michael Ansara while maybe not the best voice,still does a great performence,performing
mr.freeze as tortured and drained of emocions

Rober Kraft and Eric Bauza are just passable

John DiMaggio was miscasted

I honestly dont like Maurice LaMarche whos definantly the weakest,he sounds painfully generic and hes performence is completly lifeless,and unlike Ansara its not done right.

Almost everyone here is generic and forgettable. The only two VA'S that I feel do an alright job with the more villainous take on Freeze are Clancy Brown and Keith S, who pull off their lines well with the material they're given.

Michael Ansara is definitely my #1, he really defined the character. Flawless accent, cold tone, but could also be very emotional. RIP.

Maurice LaMarche is a close second, he's a very worthy successor to Michael Ansara. What I said about Michael applies here, there just isn't an accent and he gives a convincing performance as a weak Victor Fries without his suit and distraught over losing Nora, while sounding equally sinister when threatening Batman.

Robert Kraft is really the only other person worth mentioning, the voice is a little generic, but I can't get enough of the line he's speaking. One of the better DCU Online, he sounds pretty unhinged.

Ted Knight- Ted doesn't have that much to really work with, and to me I feel like he's trying to do an accent, I just don't know what. 2/10

Lennie Weinrib- His voice is just flat out ridiculous and sounds on par with Arnold Schwarzeneggers performance as Freeze. Not to mention, its too high and just too silly to take the least bit serious even for the 70s animated series. 2/10

Michael Ansara- What can I say about Ansara? Ansara has purely defined the role of Freeze and not only that, this role is what changed the backstory and motives of the character, and Ansara nails it just perfectly. He sounds cold (no pun intended), calculating, but you can sympathize with him and at points I got choked up with this character. Ansaras best work and one of the greatest performances in DC history. R.I.P. Michael Ansara. 10/10

Clancy Brown- While I do feel this is much more monstrous of a depiction of Freeze, while still showing some of the sympathy. But to me this performance feels to much like a generic bad guy performance for Clancy, and there really isn't that much to the performance that makes me think its great. It's not bad, I just feel it is too raspy and deep for Freeze. 6/10

Eric Bauza- I like Bauzas performance and it is very remisecent of Ansaras performance, which he does a good job at, I just wish he had a little bit more to work with. 7/10

Keith Szarabajka- I like Keiths raspiness to the voice and he does have the calculating sound and feel for the character and he pulls it off quite well, again I wish he had much more to work with in the series aside from being in a few episodes. 7.5/10

Robert Kraft- Robert sounds very good for the DC Universe game and he has this great somewhat deep voice, but he sounds very threatening and creepy which does give him this great edge to his role which works fantastically well, especially for a game with subpar casting at best. 8/10

John DiMaggio- out of the classic style portrayals of the character, John is definitely the best out of all of them. He does pull off the accent well, and he does sound moderately threatening, but there isn't much to the performance compared to the other performances, but I feel it does work very well for the classic style portrayal. 6.5/10

Maurice LaMarche- When I first heard Maurice was going to be Freeze, I was curious but at the same time thought he would do a great job in the role. Thank god I was 100% right. Not only is LaMarche fantastic, he takes everything great about all of the best versions of Freeze and mixes them all together. Taking the calmness of Kraft and Ansara, mixed with both their cold, calculating, and threatening tone as well, making it one of the greatest casting choices in gaming history IMO. 10/10

Townsend Coleman- I LOVE Townsend Colemans work and I was happy that he got to be in this game....for a whole 3 sentences. Coleman was extremely under utilized in this game as were many of the other talent in the game, which I do hope they make another Lego Batman game (And by the ending they probably are, that or a Lego Superman game) just so they can bring some of these guys back to get more lines. That being said, Coleman does sound very good in the role, but again I wish he had gotten more lines here rather than just 11 words of dialogue. 7/10

Overall it's hard for me to pick a favorite out of the choices since there are 4 very good performances here and two worthy of being some of the best DC casting choices. I guess I'll go like this.

1. Ansara/LaMarche
2. Kraft
3. Keith Szarabajka
4. Eric Bauza
5. Townsend Coleman
6. John DiMaggio
7. Clancy Brown
8. Ted Knight
9. Lennie Weinrib

1. Michael Ansara - May he rest in peace. He played the PERFECT Mr. Freeze. Few even come close.
2. Maurice LeMarche - Ansara's spiritual successor. He sounds more emotional when he talks normally, but when the robotic sound effect comes in he sounds exactly like Ansara.
3. Robert Kraft - A very fittingly cold, detatched voice. Like a deeper version of Ansara's take.
4. Keith Szarabajka - Fits Freeze very well.
5. Clancy Brown - A bit overly sinister for Freeze, but an awesome voice nonetheless.
6. Eric Bauza - If Freeze is to be a campy villain, this is how he should sound.
7. Townsend Coleman - Is he trying to imitate Ahnold? I can't tell.
8. John DiMaggio - He's...passable?
9. Lennie Weinrib - A bit too overdone.
10. Ted Knight - Generic.

I actually prefer Maurice LaMarche.

Michael does a great job of displaying the tragicness in his performance. Heck, his version defined Freeze and leaves an impact. However, I feel that LaMarche carries out the tragic aspect of the character while displaying more emotional range. I also like the effects on his performance too.

So I'll vote for LaMarche. But Ansara was no doubt memorable and a definite classic.

Ted Knight: Very generic and thuggish.

Lennie Weinrib: I'm sorry, but what about Mr. Freeze screams "Russian Accent" to this guy?

Michael Ansara: Bitter, focused on revenge, yet always lamenting Nora. The best Mr. Freeze.

Clancy Brown: Very menacing and another great performance turned in by the voice of Lex Luthor.

Eric Bauza: Sounds kind of bored.

Keith Szarabajka: I do like the whispery tone he gives Freeze.

Robert Kraft: Another very good performance.

John Dimaggio: Sounds like Arnold Schwarzenegger (trust me, after Batman and Robin, I don't want to be reminded of that)

Maurice LaMarche: I love the sympathetic touch he adds to Freeze.

Michael and Maurice are obviously the best, but I also really love Clancy Brown. Freeze had a really cool design in that show and Browns voice fit it completely. The only thing that bugs me is that he was just a thug out for money in the series, unlike Michaels tragic backstory. Keith I think is really good too.

Maurice LaMarche was incredible. He's definitely my favorite Mr. Freeze. Micheal Ansara was great too and his influence on the character as he is today is undeniable, but I agree with CatsTuxedo that he was just too constantly woe-is-me to consider him the best. LaMarche could do the same thing and still have more emotional range. Ansara could have been even better if he had a script and story with more variety and different direction, but for what it's worth he took part in changing how people saw the character and left an undeniable impact. I enjoy both, but Maurice LaMarche was perfect for the part and I hope Mr. Freeze makes a more prominent appearance in future games.

I'm going with LaMarche here. He resembles a more natural version of Ansara (whom I feel is a bit too theatrically melancholy to be completely believable) and that filter is just plain cool. The said filter also manages to make his exclamations upon being handed a takedown in his boss fight really funny ("Get off me!" in particular cracks me up).

On a side note, I do believe that Schwarzenegger could've been a decent Freeze if he had better material to work with (though I have to give him credit for managing to have fun in the role while lugging that hundred-pound suit around, which can't be easy by any stretch of the imagination); his voice has a distinctly threatening, growly quality that comes in handy during certain moments (The "humanity must suffer with me" and "turn Gotham into an icy graveyard" speeches and his last scene with Ivy in Arkham come to mind).

Michael Ansara's Mr. Freeze is the one everyone remembers. The script by Paul Dini, design by Mike Mignola, and voiceover by Michael Ansara were so well received that it replaced the Mr. Freeze of the comics.

Something to note about Michael Ansara's Mr. Freeze is that he sounded different in every appearance even though it was the same actor. In the first B:TAS appearance of Freeze in "Hear of Ice" the Victor Fries pre-transformation had a someone refined accent you'd find in the upper-middle class on the East Coast. Mr. Freeze in the suit utilized a lot of voice masks and synthesizers. In later appearances there was no voice masking or synthesizers and outside the suit, he had a more midwest accent.

Lennie Weinrib: Hahahaha! That accent is just…its too funny.

Michael Ansara: Now this is when things got good. His performance in Heart of Ice simply cannot be faulted.

Clancy Brown: Clancy just feels so, excuse the pun, cool in the role.

Eric Bauza: he was ok. It was never really that threatening, but I atleast I did not lose interest in listening too him.

Keith Szarabajka: Like Clancy Brown, he just sounds so cool! I hope he gets more than just that cameo in the Young Justice pilot.

Robert Kraft: Not the first person I would think of for Freeze, but a good performance none the less.

John DiMaggio: More comical this time, a throwback to the good old Weinrib days. But the difference is, that this was meant to be comedic.

Maurice LaMarche: Sounds just as awesome as Ansara.

Ansara and LaMarche tie for first place, Clancy Brown third, Keith fourth, then Kraft, Bauza and DiMaggio are all about the same for me, with Ted Knight and Lennie Weinrid coming in at the bottom.

It's very close, but I think I'll go with Micheal Ansara: he gives Freeze that cold, tragic and memorable performance.

Maurice LaMarche is at a close second for really nailing the evil side of Freeze.

But seriously if Robert Kraft had that accent Micheal had he would probobly be my first choice, he sounds a little generic otherwise.

Clancy Brown is also very good as usuall.

As close as this came, I think I'm pulling for Maurice LaMarche. His voice just sounds to melancholy despite how cold it's supposed to be. Ansara's a very close second, but as one who played Arkham City before having much to do with Batman in general, LaMarche's voice was the one I found myself... "warming" up to the most.

Clancy Brown - Clancy does an awesome villainous voice, as usual.
Eric Bauza - Not bad. Could sound better, though.
Keith Szarabajka - A pretty good performance. I like his calm demeanor.
Robert Kraft - He's alright. Not one of the better tragic voices.
John DiMaggio - Strange that he uses an accent, but he doesn't sound corny or anything, unlike Weinrib.
Maurice LaMarche - Another good tragic voice and he sounds really COOL whenever they filter his voice.

I'm gonna echo the "Editor's Opinion" here by saying my favorite two voice actors for Mr. Freeze are Michael Ansara and Maurice LaMarche. I thought they did a good job with how Freeze was handled in B: TAS and Arkham City respectively. Keith Szarabajka was my second favorite. until the AC trailer, but now he's third. Robert Kraft wasn't too bad, either.

Clancy Brown was okay, but my enjoyment of his Freeze is hampered by how The Batman handled the character.

Michael Ansara is the best hands-down, but Maurice LaMarche does a respectable job too!

Michael Ansara had such a beautiful, pained voice hidden behind his monotone. A great performance.

Michael and Robert are the better Freeze for when he needs to be threatening yet sympethtic and Clancy Brown and Keith are the best villain Mr. Freeze as you don't feel sorry but you know to take them seriously.
If I have to choose I'd go with Clancy

Okay the older voices just suck, I'm gonna get that outta the way. If you want the tragic and calculating Mr. Freeze, then Michael Ansara and Robert Kraft do it perfectly! However if you want a Freeze who's moreover a flat-out Villain, or in Brown's case criminal Mad-Man, then Clancy Brown and Keith Szarabajka do Great. It seems they were going for a "Campy" version of Ansara's Freeze with Eric Bauza's rendition, and surprisingly i thought it was pretty good! And I can't wait for Maurice LaMarche's performance from "Batman: Arkham City"! 8->

Three way tie between Ansara, Szarabajka and Brown.

I'm tied between Keith Szarabajka and Robert Kraft as number one. Michael Ansara is number two, Clancy Brown number 3 and Eric Bauza number 4. Ted Knight is number 5 and Lennie Weinrib is last place due to the accent. I can never picture Freeze talking like that.

Not too fond of Knight's and Weinrib's , but I can see why they went in that particular direction, you know, for the times. ;) Clancy Brown makes any character awesome, which is both a + and a - , as every character sounds *cool*, they also sound the same. Kraft wasn't too bad, but my top three choices would be:

1.) Keith Szarabajka
2.) Michael Ansara
3.) Eric Bauza

To me, it's between Ansara and Szarabajka. They both represent a more refined and intelligent supervillain in my mind. Their voices and words sound like those spoken from a very educated and almost aged/retired doctor.
