EDITOR'S OPINIONWell folks a while back we have Green Goblin's VC on this site so know we will be doing his (generally) more human counterpart Norman Osborn. (Sometimes the person who voices Norman will be the same as the one who voices Green Goblin but its not always the case. And we all know that there have been cases where we only see the Green Goblin but thats a different story.)
While in the 80's TV series Spider-Man and his Amazing Friends Norman was voiced by VA Neil Ross. In this Spider Man series is one of those that gives a nicer depiction of Norman (well before he becomes the Green Goblin) and Neil Ross did do well with that. (He also voiced Norman in the 90's Spider man series in which there is only a slight difference in voice. However unlike the 90's series Neil only voiced Norman in Spider Man and his Amazing Friends.)
In the Game based off of the Spider-Man movie, known Hollywood Star Willem Dafoe reprises his role in the game and I always did liked Willem's work in the movie and it shown in the game.
And last but not least is the latest take on Norman (and the latest one where Norman and Green Goblin are voiced by different actors) is fairly known screen actor Alan Rachins voices Norman here and does it rather well. Alan's work on Norman does give him a more cool and confident persona that maybe one of the meaner depictions of Norman but is capable of showing kindness as you can see here.
This is another one of those cases in which I am not sure which to pick as all 3 of these actors have done well for the role here.
