Default Live-Action Actors who should reprise their characters voice wise

Since some actors get cast in live-action roles and have experience with voice acting, which from live-action do you want to see reprise voice acting wise.

For me, one of my top (if not the #1. pick for me) choices is J.K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon, I've been wanting that to happen since they announced him in the role years ago. He's a great choice and would easily make my top 5 Gordon's if he ever voiced him.

Angela Bassett as Amanda Waller, I legit forgot she had portrayed "The Wall" in live-action back in 2011's Green Lantern movie, she was very much wasted there and considering her acting chops, if a future DC animated movie were to get her on board to reprise voice acting wise, i'd appreciate that.

Mark Strong as Sinestro, he is IMO the perfect Sinestro and it's a shame that he wasn't in a better/more successful Green Lantern movie. I'd die happy if he got to reprise him again.

James Marsters as Brainiac, ok i've never watched Smallville but knowing James "Zamasu" Marsters had portrayed him in live-action, I think he'd crush it if he were to voice him in something.

Michael Ironside as General Sam Lane. I mean yeah he's one of the best voices of Darkseid, but I think there's a missed opportunity not having him also double as Sam Lane considering how much of a commanding presence he has, maybe the next time he reprises the role of Darkseid, please.

Wentworth Miller as Captain Cold. Definitely one of my favourite casting choices from the CW Flash series, his unique voice and delivery left an impression and would be interesting to hear in some animated project or game.

John Glover as Floronic Man....controversial pick but I've always enjoyed his really manic performance as Floronic Man in Batman and Robin and I think it'd be cool to have him reprise.

John Kassir as Atom, considering that Miguel Ferrer had gotten to reprise Weather Wizard since he played him in the Justice League of America tv pilot, I feel like John Kassir was an interesting casting choice, not his usual role and if he ever voiced him it'd be kinda cool for the novelty and playing against type too.

Ian McKellan as Magneto. Considering we've had Patrick Stewart reprise Professor X a few times in video game form, I think it's a shame Ian wasn't brought in to voice Magneto, it's hard for me not to hear his voice as Magneto and while Dwight Schultz's voice match was incredible, it would've been even more awesome to have Ian voice him.

Kelly Hu as Lady Deathstrike, this one is an absolute no-brainer, considering how much voice acting she does that nobody has ever gotten her to reprise Deathstike since she played her in X-2.

John Rhys-Davies as Kingpin, this one is also a no-brainer, from The Trail of the Incredible Hulk tv movie came John as Kingpin and considering how classy he is in many of his roles, he'd be a delight to have reprise again in voice over.

Garry Chalk as Dum-Dum Dugan. I'm biased since I'm a huge fan of Garry and even met the guy before but like he totally deserves another shot as Dum-Dum outside of a tv-movie.

David Tennant as Kilgrave/Purple Man, definitely one of my favourite performances from the Marvel Netflix series, a terrifying delight to watch. I'm genuinely surprised none of the current Marvel shows decided to pull some synergy and have a one-shot appearance with Kilgrave, Tennant's a natural at voice acting and he'd be really fun to hear.

Doug Jones as Silver Surfer. Yeah it sucks when they keep dubbing him over a lot of his roles and Silver Surfer is no exception. Hopefully someday we can hear his voice come out of the characters mouth.

Michael Rooker as Yondu. His voice is so unique and distinctive, proof that a lighter voice can still sound intimidating, he'd be cool to have reprise.

Ty Burrell as Doc Sampson. Remember when Phil Dunphy was in the MCU, well he was. I think he's a good choice for ol' Doc but he really should return to the role, he'd be great in an animated series of some kind.

Post any you want to see return to voice them in whatever.
