Voice Compare » X-Men » Colossus

Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Colossus with sound clips and images.
So my second favorite X-Man after Nightcrawler is the mountainous steel giant with a heart of gold, Colossus. Upon looking at him for the first time, you might expect his character to be the typical dumb muscle, but no. Here is one of the most compassionate X-Men characters who cares not only about his family and friends, but also his country.

In the Fox 90's series, we only got 2 episodes with Colossus. The first one he was introduced as an innocent foreigner. Rick Bennett played him with naivity but also with awareness.

Robert Cait took over the role in the ep where Omega Red was trying to take over Russia. His voice was pretty similar to Bennett's, and with the chance to give some real depth to Colossus' patriotism, I feel the strength and acting of the voice did not do the character justice.

Also, in both cases the voice was not powerful and deep enough, even though it worked well in the first episode.

This was certainly not the case with Michael Adamthwaite's portrayal of Colossus. To me, he was dead on with the voice. The accent and braverity was spot on and he put a lot of emotion into what little lines he had. You could tell the whole way through that he was frustrated at having to work for Magneto out of black mail.

The rest of the voices, I really haven't listened to enough dialogue to make an analysis. All sound more or less like similar Russian accents. Adamthwaite's stands out above the rest by far. What I did find a waste was the American accent given to Colossus in X-Men: The Official Game. While I understand in the movie Daniel Cudmore had no accent, I thought the game wasted a great opportunity to stay true to the Russian giant.

any chance Phil Morris might actually be Nolan North? The credits for the show just list the actors, not who they played, so who knows?

I brought this up before when I got Boom Boom corrected, only I thought it was Jim Ward. Never heard back from the guy, though, so I can't say for sure.

@Lpfan120 I don't know Phil Morris's range at all, but it does sound like Nolan North, now that you mention it. Especially the first line. Worth looking into.

Going with Dan Green. That is a cool voice. Michael Adamthwaite and Phil Morris are pretty good too. Too bad Phil didn't get a chance to do anything with Colossus. Would've really loved to see him in action in that series.

Travis Willingham for Colossus, anyone?

@GraveMan88 That could work.

Dan Green for this comparison. His Russian accent is natural and can also be deep too.

@Fulgore2005 Oh, I already commented. Never mind, this is… just a detailed explanation.

Dan Green clearly takes this one here, he does the accent the best without coming off as forced and is the the toughest VA. Michael Adamthwaite, Phil Morris, Tim Russ, and Andre Sogliuzzo are also pretty good and the only other VA's worth mentioning.

Dimirtri Diatchenko needs to voice Colossus considering how well he can do a russian accent.
said at 1:59 PM on Fri Mar 8 2013
I want to like Andre, but he sounds too light for me. Sticking with Phil Morris, Dan Green, and Michael Adamthwaite.
said at 4:05 PM on Thu Sep 12 2013
@VctrBnsn Chris isn't bad at all, he's got the personality down.

I actually really like Dan Green's take on the character/ If I had to pick someone for second place it would be Michael Adamicantspeelltherestofhisname.

@Nightmare Crusher You can time to write that but can't take the time to write Adamthwaite.

Dan Green, I just think he does a good, deep and tough voice. Also great Russian accent. :D

2. Phil Morris
3. Micheal Adamthwaite

For some reason, Andre Sogliuzzo's voice kinda reminds me of Etzio from Assassins creed lol! (Even though it's meant to be a Russian accent.)
said at 10:28 PM on Tue Sep 18 2012
Michael Adamthwaite was the best in my opinion. I would like to hear more of Phil Morris's colossus.
said at 4:01 PM on Fri Apr 12 2013
@coolgeek176 He was supposed to be back in Season 2 before it got scrapped.

Michael Adamthwaite.

@TheVengeanceKnight After relistening to the clips, I'm changing my vote to Phil Morris. Yeah, he didn't have much lines, but damn was that a cool and suiting voice! :-D
said at 2:50 AM on Fri Oct 14 2011
This is a tough one for me, but after a while I'm gonna go with Phil Morris for Colossus. That said, Jim Ward, Dan Green, Michael Adamthwaite, and Earl Boen are pretty good, too.

I'll see what I can do. At the time that was all that was available. I'll see if I get a better quality clip. :)

"You can't keep me locked up Cyberiad."

It's a bad quality clip but it's all I could get. Plus the fact that he voiced him with a thick accent doesn't help. :(

No I saw the clip with Chris on Youtube before and I can confirm that's indeed Chris as Colossus here. I will comment on this more but I will wait until we get the other Colossus clips such as the aforementioned Phil Morris and how the clips of Colossus in the games he is in.
