Voice Compare » DC Universe » G Gordon Godfrey
Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of G Gordon Godfrey with sound clips and images.
G. Gordon Godfrey (full name Glorious Gordon Godfrey) is an antagonist of the Justice League whom is a minion of Darkseid and his comic book debut was in The Forever People Volume 1 #3 in June 1971. G. Gordon Godfrey is known as a TV personality whom is known for speaking against Super-Heroes as he tries to convince the world that the Justice League are threats and that all super heroes should be hated and feared. In most stories that Godfrey is in it is revealed he actually has hypnotic persuasion powers to get people to want to hate the Justice League (namely as a plot from Darkseid as a part of his conquest of Earth). While G. Gordon Godfrey is generally known for being a persuasive fear mongering TV personality (in which he is sometimes accused of being a satirical jab at certain real life TV personalities) he is also a capable hand-to-hand fighter and has the same physiology as the other New Gods.
EDITOR'S OPINIONToday on the DC Universe VC section we take a look at this infamous TV personality... G. GORDON GODFREY! Let us begin shall we?
Enrico Colantoni- Enrico does a very good job at playing Godfrey as a young prettyboy whom is lets just say quite a smarmy jerk. Enrico's performance suits an incredibly arrogant fear-monger like Godfrey rather well and is another fine example of the voice work in the DCAU.
Tim Curry- While Tim Curry is one of my favorite actors the idea of casting a British actor like Curry does seem a little strange at first but I got over it rather quickly (though it does help that Godfrey does look a bit older in this show). Anyways while Tim Curry is of course no stranger to villainous roles this is a interesting somewhat different change of pace for him. Tim's voice for the role does have a tendency to go from a higher pitch to a lower pitch and back again but while most actors would make that kind of jarring Tim actually makes it work. Tim's performance for the role does suit Godfrey's fear-mongering persona of course but I like on how he makes Godfrey occasionally menacing (as Godfrey seems a little creepy that he is not quite sane). Anyways its a good example of Tim Curry's work and of the voice work in the show.
Overall I am not sure who to go with here as both of these guys did great with this role in their own way.
