Voice Compare » Iron Man » J.A.R.V.I.S.

Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of J.A.R.V.I.S. with sound clips and images.
*NOTE: We have separated Edwin Jarvis and J.A.R.V.I.S. into two separate character generations, thus allowing for this compare. 

J.A.R.V.I.S. (short for "Just A Rather Very Intelligent System") is the artificial intelligence program created by Tony Stark. J.A.R.V.I.S. operates the internal computer systems of Tony's house and even his armor. As an AI program, J.A.R.V.I.S. excels in the "intelligence" area, having personal conversations with Tony and even showing hints of emotion.

Much like the Edwin Jarvis voice compare, this is a tough decision for me. Paul Bettany was the first voice actor to portray the AI version of Tony's loyal butler, and it shows, based on the other attempting similar performances in order to better relate to the success of the live-action franchise. Paul's version is essentially the "polite British human butler, Edwin Jarvis" in the form of an AI program. He is polite, slightly sarcastic and even shows concern for Tony at times. Gillon and Andrew filled in for Paul in the two Iron Man video games, and they're both pretty spot-on with their imitations. In Earth's Mightiest Heroes and Ultimate Spider-Man, J.A.R.V.I.S. is voiced by Phil LaMarr, who - although it is meant to relate back to the live-action J.A.R.V.I.S. - succeeds in adding some distinction between the two. Phil's voice is deeper, faster and not as "relaxed" as Paul's, leading to a more personal computer voice. The unknown voice actor who portrayed J.A.R.V.I.S. in Armored Adventures (who portrayed the armor computer system voice of a Tony's grandson from the future) did an adequate job as well. Nothing spectacular, but nothing awful. Troy Baker does a pretty decent imitation of Paul's portrayal. 

Overall, all six voice actors did a find job with the mechanized minion, but my top two spots are going to Phil in first place, with Paul as a close second.

Nolan North should get a shot at voicing JARVIS some time.

 2 Shout Outs!
1-: Troy Baker: His voice is just so deliciously British sounding, while the effects are great as well.
2-: David Kaye: Gives him personality, but it sounds a little to close to his Charles Xavier voice at times.
3-: Paul Bettany: Very fitting, but it's a bit too flat. I know, he's doing an AI voice, but Troy and David are just more entertaining to me.
4-:Phil Lamarr: Shows his range although he's impersonating Paul, but he slips into his normal voice on occasion.
5-:Andrew Chaikin: Another good Paul impersonator, but Phil is the better of the two for doing more with the role.
6-: UVA and Gillon Stephenson: Those are some really bad accents.

Paul Betteany is my favorite, with Phil LaMarr and Troy Baker tied for 2nd place!
said at 8:30 PM on Mon Jul 8 2013
My picks are
1. Phil LaMarr (who brings a certain "humanity" to the role if you ask me. Kind of like if the original Jarvis were transplanted into a computer)
2. David Kaye (who's similar to Phil LaMarr's but I just like Phil's better)
3. Paul Bettany (who did excellently in the films)
4. Troy Baker (who seems to be emulating Bettany if you ask me. Doing it alright but not doing much with the role himself)
5. Unknown VA (No idea who he is but he does a surprisingly good job if you ask me)

Wait, if AA does take place in the Ultimate Spider-Man universe, why isn't Phil LaMarr JARVIS?
said at 5:23 PM on Tue Jun 11 2013
@VctrBnsn I think that's probably better left unexplained. :s
said at 10:32 AM on Wed Jun 12 2013
@VctrBnsn My conspiracy theory is that Phil realized that Marvel Animation is currently a load of #### and declined any auditions/casting from future Marvel Animation projects to, uh, protect his reputation. :-P

@TheVengeanceKnight My conspiracy theory is that Loeb was afraid to connect this series to EMH, so they just recasted him. The only reason he got Fred as Hulk back was because he's defined by the character, and not to EMH.
said at 1:08 AM on Tue Jun 25 2013
@VctrBnsn Could be true. They also got Steve Blum as Wolverine and Peter Lurie as Sabretooth. The only reason Fred returned as Thing in the latest USM episode was convience.

David Kaye sounds like a robotic Proffesor X. I'm voting for him.

Nice to see David get another recurring TV role, especially as an established character. His JARVIS is good, but I'm still sticking with Phil.
said at 4:58 AM on Tue May 14 2013
Definitely giving this one to Paul. He's great! Runner up is Baker for the simple fact that:

1. He's Troy
2. His rendition is just awesome

@Mr.Fennoy93 Plus, I honestly think that's a great idea. His accent would work quite well for the established "British AI program".
