Voice Compare » Laputa Castle in the Sky » Mr. Duffy / Boss
Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Mr. Duffy / Boss with sound clips and images.
Mr. Duffy is one of the supporting protagonists in classic Hayao Miyazaki film Laputa Castle in the Sky. Mr. Duffy is known as Boss, he managed the boiler in the Mines and is the father figure of Pazu. Mr. Duffy is a firm and hard-working family man in which he may seem fairly strict but is genuinely caring to Pazu as he does help Pazu save Sheeta from her pursuers. Mr. Duffy is also a very brawny man as he is able to rip up his shirt with his pecs and while he is a supporting character overall in the movie he did have a prominent role in the first quarter of the movie.
EDITOR'S OPINIONToday on the Laputa VC Section we take a look at one of the manliest men in a Studio Ghibli film... MR. DUFFY THE BOSS! Let us begin...
Cliffton Wells- Cliffton's voice does have a good sense of gruffness to it as his performance does suit how the Boss is a gruff-mannered but genuinely caring father to Pazu and is a good example of the voice work in the '89 dub.
John Hostetter- John also has a suitably gruff voice for the role as well, his performance also suited Mr. Duffy's tough caring father figure role rather well and is a good example of the voice work in the Disney dub. (The only difference I can really note is that there was a bit more dialogue in the Disney dub but I certainly didn't mind though).
Overall both of these men did well so I am not sure who to go with here.
