Voice Compare » G.I. Joe » Heavy Duty




Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Heavy Duty with sound clips and images.
Heavy Duty is the cousin of fellow Joe team member, Roadblock. Not only is he Roadblock's cousin but like Roadblock, Heavy Duty has a passion for cooking and for speaking in rhyme. He is a heavy weapons specialist and is described as having no fear. He also has a passion for classical music. In later incarnations that passion is sometimes replaced with a passion for muscles and his own physique.

EDITOR'S OPINION

For perhaps the first time ever in oen of my Voice Compares I absolutely do not have a favorite voice here. They all four have unique takes on the character and I enjoy them all. Owens, is obviously a little more comedic than the others with his take on the character while LeMarche and Saulsberry went for more of a tough guy voice through and through. Mankuma did a nice job of blending the tough guy persona with the more sophisticated parts of the character. I am seriously torn on this one and very interested as to what all of the fans think about this one.

*After watching Taylor in MacGyver, his normal voice sounds like a slightly higher Heavy Duty.

I loved LaMarche. I think his Destro voice fits Heavy Duty.

I like all of these guys, but I prefer Blu's portrayal of the character, so he gets my vote.

Man, what is it with G.I. Joe that has a near perfect resume of casting characters? :D

 2 Shout Outs!
Keith Ferguson Sounds Cool as Heavy Duty. Though Phil Morris would seem a Perfect choice as the Voice of Heavy Duty.
