Happy birthday, James Earl Jones!

His voice is easily one of the most iconic of all time. I think his performance is one of the reasons why Darth Vader has become one of the most iconic villains of all time: the booming voice itself coupled by the gravitas and intimidation. He was even able to give the character a sympathetic side during his last moments in Episode VI. As much as I despise the new content being made under Disney, I at least appreciate that they went to the trouble to get him back and give him more work as the character.

I also enjoyed him as Mufasa and I'm impressed that he's still active today.

He was really great as Darth Vader, and I was surprised to hear him as the Pharaoh in The Greatest Adventure: Stories from the Bible.

I'm very thrilled that he is returning to the big screen as Darth Vader for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

This should definitely make up for his very brief reprisal in Revenge of the Sith for sure.

Happy 85th Birthday James Earl Jones!!

He does an Incredible job voicing Mufasa, the CNN announcer, and especially the Sith Lord himself: Darth Vader.

Hope he reprises his role in Rogue One.

Happy Birthday James Earl Jones.

One of the all time greatest voices in cinematic history.

He was perfect as both Darth Vader and Mufasa, and I always get a kick out hearing him do "THIS IS CNN!"

I also loved his guest appearance on The Big Bang Theory he did a few years back. That was probably one of....if not the funniest guest star appearance on the show.

also I'm really hoping that since Star Wars: Rogue One might be featuring Darth Vader, that James will reprise the role once more, I'm sure it could probably happen since he's currently voicing him in Rebels too.

Anyways Happy Birthday James Earl Jones! May the force be with you!

I'm glad he was able to reprise as Darth Vader once again, while he did sound a bit aged in the role, it was still a nice treat to have him get to speak more as Vader onscreen, it's good to know that the final words he may end up saying in the movies wasn't "NOOOOOOO!"

I really liked the delivery of "Don't choke on your aspirations." So corny but man does James sell that perfectly with class and menace.

Still it's pretty great he's still doing Darth Vader after all this time.

Happy Birthday James Earl Jones!

One of acting's most powerful and booming sounding voices.

James Earl Jones is such a talented actor, I love his epic deep voice. I like to see him do more animated roles.

He also guest starred in The Simpsons "Treehouse of Horror 1" as the moving man in "Bad Dream House," Serak the Preparer in "Hungry Are the Damned" and the narrator in "The Raven."
