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.

EDITOR'S OPINION

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.

Colossus is one of those characters I feel they've never really utilized that well which is a shame since a big burly Russian with the ability to make his skin turn to steel is a neat concept.

Anyways I honestly like Michael Adamthwaite best since the pitch of voice he uses strikes a nice balance of being big and powerful but also sounding relatively youthful and even though Colossus was (an unwilling) member of Magneto's Acolytes he totally can sound heroic. It's a shame we didn't get a solo episode with Colossus like what they did with Gambit but still I like Michael's voice best. What's incredible is that Michael was in his early twenties when he was first cast as Colossus, seriously he just continues to get better and better every new role he takes on.

Jim Ward would have to be my second favourite as while he does sound notably older than Michael. I absolutely love the voice, the accent, pitch and performance he did for Colossus. he was just so entertaining in the unfortunate predicament he got himself into and it really got to show off the range and versatility that Jim Ward is capable of.

Dan Green is really good too, he has a really deep voice and a great accent but i feel he's a bit too solemn sounding to be my favourite voice.

Chris Cox is a pretty great fit for Colossus too. Seriously Chris is just one of those VA's who just continues to impress me.

Rick Bennett is pretty impressive with his take, I'm amazed the guy who also did Juggernaut is capable of sounding very youthful and naive, he's good though he sorta leans towards Yakov Smirnoff territory for my liking. Robert Cait is decent though all I hear with his take is a Russian Wayne Grayson.

Earl Boen has a lot of power, deepness and a great strong Russian accent, the only downside is that he sounds maybe a bit too old for Colossus but otherwise he's excellent.

Dan Gilvezan actually is pretty impressive and I like the out of the box idea of him in the role, his accent is solid and it's cool to hear him in a deeper voice.

Christopher Corey Smith sounds a bit too light for Colossus but still works well.

Tom Kenny works for the SHSS version where he's a transfer student, it's a bit too goofy and I can't see him working as a traditional Colossus.

Nolan North is decent but nothing special. I'm still amazed for the longest time we all believed it was Phil Morris who did Colossus.

Andre Sogullizo's voice just sounds off to me as Colossus. I don't know why it just does?

I can't really hear Phil LaMarr in the clip he has, though I know he could be a better fit with better direction.

Tim Russ sounds way too rough for Colossus.

George Buza works for a fitting game though he could have worked also as the character in the cartoon.

John Stephenson is OK but nothing that special, under better direction he could have worked well.

Brad Abrell is definitely my least favourite, the problem is that he has no accent. I know he's voice matching Daniel Crudmore from the live-action movies but without that accent he just sounds generic and forgettable. He just sounds like an ordinary guy and not Colossus. They missed a good opportunity to give Colossus an accent. At least in the Deadpool movie, we have a new actor in the role and he will be doing the accent which is fantastic news.

I'm going with Michael Adamthwaite on this one.

BONUS: I could totally see Patrick Seitz, Rick D. Wasserman, Crispin Freeman, Marc Diraison or Rob Mungle being great fits for Colossus.

After seeing Deadpool yesterday I have to say Stefan Kapicic did an excellent job voicing Colossus.

His voice is literally a perfect mix between Michael Adamthwaite and Nolan North's takes on Colossus except better. I just love how earnest his portrayal and performance is and the accent is just fantastic.

I might actually switch my vote to him when he's finally added on here.

Listening back to it, I feel stupid and it's pretty obvious that that's Nolan North in Wolverine and the X-Men.

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?

@NCZ Well he has good range but I know that that is not Phil Morris, I'm 100% sure it's Nolan at this point. Sorry I know these comments were made awhile ago but I'm just decided to post comments now.

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.

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.

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

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.)
