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.
EDITOR'S OPINIONMuch 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 J.A.R.V.I.S.es 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.
