Lumiere

Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Lumiere with sound clips and images.
Franchise: Beauty and the Beast

Lumiere is a talking candelabra and, strangely enough, the only person in France with a French accent. He lives for reckless disregard of his master's rules and stages kitchen-themed Broadway numbers behind his back. Despite his blatant screwing of the rules, he is the Beast's closest friend and is often the one to give him advice when he's not busy getting it on with a featherduster.

I can't imagine any actor who could have done a better job as Lumiere in the movie than Jerry Orbach. Jeff is good too.

Maurice LaMarche (even though he's not in the Compare yet) also did a pretty good Lumiere for the one line he had in "Mickey's Magical Christmas". I wonder why he only voiced Lumiere once.

And here's a link to another example of Jeff's Lumiere:

Did anyone else feel the urge to sing along to Jerry's clip?

Jerry hands down the BEST, RIP 2 him.

Jeff was an average replacement.

Jerry of course is the original so he has an advantage. But my... GOD Jeff is disturbingly incredible. Seriously, if you didn't tell me that was Jeff in KH2, I would've been convinced that it was Jerry.

Jerry Orbach is simply the king of this role, because his training on Broadway properly primed for the showman that Lumière is! I love Jeff Bennett, but he is overshadowed by his predecessor...

Jerry Orbach, yes. But I suppose Jeff Bennett is a close second.

Obach, definitely. Bennett was decent, could have put more oomph.

Definetely Orbach, but Bennett makes a decent stand-in for him.

Jeff Bennett's voice is too similar to the other characters he has played but too bad Jerry Orbach has passed he was amazing at this role
