Hulk Hulk


Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Korg with sound clips and images.
Franchise: Hulk

Korg is a secondary protagonist in the Hulk franchise (whom was originally a one-shot foe of the Mighty Thor in his original appearance) and his comic book debut was in Journey into Mystery #83 back in 1963. Korg is a Kronan whom are stone men (kind of like The Thing) and while Korg was involved in the Kronan invasion of Earth that Thor stopped after when the Kronan retreated, Korg along with his surviving allies were captured by the Red King's forces and was held prisoner as a gladiatorial slave in Sakaar. Korg was trying to survive as a Gladiator (and is not particularly proud of that especially considering certain victories) and he is a loyal member of the group Warbound that rebels against the Red King's tyranny. Korg like all other Kronans have a strong and highly durable body that can live for many years and while he uses his strong body he is also an intelligent tactician whom is able to use his environment to his advantage.

Today we take a look at this Rock Man whom was once a foe of Thor but is nowadays an ally to the likes of the Hulk... KORG! Lets begin...

Kevin Michael Richardson- A perfectly suitable casting choice for the role if I do say so myself, granted he is very well known for doing deep voices (in which the majority of his work was like that). But still Kevin's voice and performance for the role was very suiting as it sounds strong yet sympathetic as well. So in another words its a fine example of KMR's voice work and of the voice work in that movie.

Dave Wittenburg- Sorry but while I normally like Dave's voice work he sounds really miscast here, I know of the nature of the show though call me old fashioned but someone like Korg should have a lower voice. Granted Dave did make some effort in trying to sound rough in his voice and performance for the role but it was just too light. So how do I put this mildly? Its not really bad but its not one of the better performances in that show lets just say.

Jonathan Adams- Jonathan's voice was also rather suiting for the role as while its not as deep as Kevin's but it is suitably deep enough envertheless. Anyways Jonathan's performance was also pretty good as he gives a bit more energetic performance as a Heroic Rebel rather well and its another good example of his handiwork.

Overall I am clearly going with Kevin & Jonathan here as Dave was just simply miscast in this role.

Typecast as he may be in the role, KMR is great as Korg, although the others are also good.

Honestly KMR is the voice I have always heard for Korg. He handles the deep strength but strong heart that I always thought Korg had.

Between Dave and Jonathan, Jonathan just makes Korg sound like an action hero but the voice at least fits. I like Dave Wittenburg but he was just miscast.

Tough choice between Jonathan Adams and Kevin Michael Richardson, yet I'm going with Jonathan. I think he has more personality. He sounds both tough/brutish and also noble.

I agree that Dave Wittenberg has a good attitude, but the voice itself doesn't really work.

@Polyester Funk After some thought and listening again I'm changing to Kevin Michael Richardson.

Jonathan is hands down the best man here.

Kevin is 2nd as I like his deep voice but he kinda fails to capture the heart of Korg.

Dave is just average sounding meaning he's the weakest 1 here.

Jonathan is my new favorite, he has a great deep voice (maybe should have been a bit gruffer but it works as it is) plus he is able to have a range of emotion.

Kevin, while having a great deep and gruff voice, didn't really seem to be able to show much emotion.

Dave has the right personality but the voice is just way too light

@Music Meister I definitely agree with the way you phrased your opinion on Dave, MM. He's got a good ATTITUDE for the character, but not quite the right VOICE. I think he could do very well, if given another chance.

@TylerMirage Basically the basic voice would be Dave's attitude with Kevin's voice, Jonathan is the closest to that

wow, dave wittenberg does a terrible korg. he doesn't sound like he has power of any kind. Kevin Michael Richardson owns this role (like a lot of his other roles in other stories)
