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.
