Voice Compare » X-Men » Beast

Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Beast with sound clips and images.
Beast is one of the members of the X Men in which in fact he was one of the original members of the X Men team whom has been around in the X Men comics since the first comic back since September of 1963. Beast is Hank McCoy and he originally had a human appearance as a big muscular man with a brutish personality however not too long afterwards Beast is depicted a big muscular man covered in blue fur and had a kinder more intellectual personality which has became the standard over how Beast is portrayed. While in the X Men franchise the term Mutant is a often derogatory term for people whom were born with Super Powers however Beast is much more of a Mutant as he originally had a human appearance but then received his blue ape-like appearance due to the mutation that his body is going through (and his body has recently mutated to have a more feline-like appearance as well). Beast is one of the more consistently depicted characters in the franchise as a kind compassionate intellectual, loves to constantly speak with big words and a fine mix of brains and brawn but there are some things about Beast that do depend on the story we are talking about such as whether if he has accepted his blue-furred appearance or not for example.

EDITOR'S OPINION

Today on the X Men VC section we have a little something for the consummate intellectual strongman... BEAST! Since this is a very large VC I will just simply state that I am not quite sure who to go with here as all of these guys have done very well with the role here as none of them seem bad for the role at all. I mean sure Dee's voice for the role may seem a bit light compared to the others but even still it works for the role nevertheless. Overall I am not sure who to pick here as they all have done well in their own way.

I like Fred Tatasciore the best. He has the right mix of intellect and ferocity for the role. I also like George Buza and Gregg Berger. Ron Halder and Mike Pollock sound pretty similar to me and they sound pretty good. Michael Kopsa was good also.

@30Rockefeller I love almost all those ideas.

But ESPECIALLY Lance Henriksen.

But ESPECIALLY Clancy Brown.

But ESPECIALLY Keith David.

But ESPECIALLY Michael McConnohie.

But ESPECIALLY-okay I'll stop now.

The only two I'm not really sure about are Paul Eiding and Ed Asner, I also don't think I've ever heard Kevin Sorbo's work before, otherwise, excellent ideas.

@30Rockefeller Eh...Henriksen, Brown and David might make him sound too evil.

My top picks for the role are Michael Kopsa, George Buza, Ron Halden, Mike Pollock and Fred Tatasciore. If I had to pick one however, it'd have to be Fred.

Ron does a much better job than Mike Pollock IMO, who is the weakest next to the SHSO unknown voice.

It's a three way tie between George Buza, Richard Portnow, and Fred Tatasciore for me.

While Fred is my favorite,most of this guys did a great job,the weakest by default is Dee Bradley Baker,not horrible but this is another case(just like with Hamerhead and J.Jonah Jameson)were hes being to forced to do a type of voice thats out of his normal capacity.
By the way what the **** is up with the desing of Mike Pollocks Beast,he looks like the result of a persian cat that had sex with a norwich terrier

@Xymor Regarding the Beast design for Pollock, keep in mind that Beast has had several different physical appearances. He isn't always just a "blue, furry man". He's been a relatively normal human, a blue furry man, an ape-like creature and a lion-man. One of his more common designs IS actually that of a more feline/animalistic/lion look.

@Xymor

And I'll have you know that Dee Bradley Baker's "normal capacity" is pretty damn wide and Beast is most definitely within that; he just had either crappy material or a crappy voice director.

@Xymor Really Beast only had his big blue ape look in the 90's, but because of the 90's animated series, that look became most popular. Like Tyler said, he usually looks more like a lion these days, but I do prefer the 90's look overall.

@Xymor According to the comics, Beast developed a more cat-like appearance due to a secondary mutation.

George Buza is classic, Michael Kopsa is great, Gregg Berger does an amazing impression, and Fred is just phenomenal. But really, none of them are bad.

All of them are pretty good and its tough to choose which one is the best. I would have to say Fred is the best because of he sounds intelligent yet relaxed. I have to give special mention to Mike Pollock because he really sounds like he is acting all of Beast's actions.

@Cartoon_fan87 Doubt it, Michael Dorn was not in the game's credits and I kind of doubt that Dorn would appear in something uncredited where everyone else was credited.
