Voice Compare » DC Universe » King Faraday

Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of King Faraday with sound clips and images.
King Faraday is a US Government Secret Agent and he made his comic book debut in the first series of Danger Trail #1 in July of 1950. King was an ex-soldier whom became counter-espionage agent in the US Government, to be more precise he is a member of the C.I.A. King was also at one time the mentor of super-heroine Nightshade and has worked with the likes of Batman, Martian Manhunter and Amanda Waller before. King Faraday has no super powers but he is a well trained and intelligent agent whom is a skilled fighter and marksman and while like many other US government agents in DC comics he does appear shady but he is normally very much a good guy.

EDITOR'S OPINION

Today on the DC Universe VC section we take a look at this secret agent... KING FARADAY! Let us begin this mission now.

Scott Patterson- Scott's voice and performance were pretty good as his performance does suit a serious mannered agent. But I did like on how Scott's performance does have a little bit of a sense of humor, which helps in making sure that King does have a personality in the show. So in other words its another good example of the voice work in the show.

Phil Morris- Phil's voice for the role is not bad even though I do think it is a bit too high to me. However Phil's performance on the other hand is just though as it suits how hard-mannered King can be and is a pretty good example of Phil's work.

Clancy Brown- Clancy's voice and performance for the role felt VERY natural right from the start. Clancy's deep voice works well with his good performance as a hard-mannered agent. So basically its a good example of Clancy's work and of the voice work in the show & a good example of how Clancy can play a good guy well.

Overall all 3 of these guys did well but I will go with Clancy the most here.

I like Phil the most, the fast paced talking and the dry humor stand out more while the other two are kinda meh. Scott is pretty generic while Clancy didn't really show any emotion

Clancy is kind of typecast since he plays agents good and evil.

@TheVengeanceKnight That's one of his few roles that's beyond his usual range.

They got Clancy Brown to voice King in the show, but not Luthor?
They were using the same design from Public Enemies, for crying out loud!

@Weirdperson31 He wanted to different voices than the DCAU ones the only VA he used that had worked with Bruce Timm as the same character was Bruce Greenwood as Batman and that of course was not for the DCAU. Also Clancy Brown might have been busy anyway if he was asked. If Brie Timm made or at least was involved in Young Justice that would be different . Unfortunately that's not the case.

@pete Even if Bruce Timm was involved in YJ, it doesn't necessarily mean Clancy Brown would've been back for Lex. Case in point, Timm oversees the DC Universe Original Animated films lines and a few of those has reprisals from DCAU cast members, usually casting other people for the roles.

@TheVengeanceKnight Yeah, Weisman world, where he and voice director Jamie Thomason actually take a risk and try and choose new and different talent that would fit their own versions of characters rather than just lazily rehash voice actors for cheap fanboy pandering.

@D.A.V.E. No offense, but considering Timm also oversees the DC Animated Movies lines, I wouldn't exactly says he doesn't take risks in casting.

@D.A.V.E. I don't get it. Are you implying that the natural evolution of DC animated productions isn't a good thing? Or do you simply just favor older shows over the newer ones? I mean, it's ok if you do, but remember that the first decade of the 2000's is long gone now.

@pokemastanumba1 What? I'm saying THE EXACT OPPOSITE! To not let nostalgia make casting decisions and to actually seek out voice actors that are both new and right for the role, rather than just casting the same VAs every single time.

@D.A.V.E. Oh, you sounded sarcastic about the whole thing in your last post, so I didn't get it. Sorry for any confusion. ^^;

Also Anicomicgeek, he's been "taking risks in casting" from the start of his involvement.

@pokemastanumba1 If we're talking about Timm and the DC Universe fiml line, I've actually been saying that.

@Anicomicgeek Technically, that happens all the time, what with new incarnations, new characters, etc. Young Justice is a prime example of that.

More on-topic, Clancy Brown is pretty good here, though I also have to wonder why he didn't reprise Luthor even though he IS in YJ, but I digress.

@pokemastanumba1 I was responding to D.A.V.E.'s post, which implied no one else took risks.

@pokemastanumba1 I remembered an interview with Phil LaMarr where he said that he was disappointed when he wasn't allowed to audition, let alone cast, for Virgil Hawkins when he came on YJ. I'd imagine Clancy's reaction to not being cast as Lex in YJ would be similar.

I gotta go with scott, it feels like more of a natural fit to me. Clancy did fine, but I'm aware throughout the whole role that it's someone acting as this character, not just this character. Maybe I'm just used to clancy brown i dunno...
