Edit. I don't stand by what I wrote anymore and wish this post to be deleted.

I know that's beyond insulting to a lot of voice actors, who are very talented and have incredible vocal and emotional ranges and I once again ackowledge that's a dumb personal hang-up of mine. These type of things are pure emotional nonsense, not rational thoughts. If it helps, imagine that this is my dream cast for a big budget Moomin animated movie, with an all-star cast, rather than just "generic" Moomin dream cast.
You're right; that is indeed insulting.

All if not most of the voice actors who more often than not don't lead "big budget triple AAA movies" can do "down-to-earth" voices more than you think. I am aware that you happen to like people like Tom Holland or Bryan Cranston as much as the next guy, or how people in the business sell you on the idea that they're the "best thing ever" over and over, but to say that they're more capable of doing characters more "down-to-earth" than anyone else makes me feel like you're not really aware of the main game of voice-over; to sound convincing.

You know, you are absolutely right. You are 100% right,with no arguments from me. I was being a real lunkhead when I wrote that. Not even sure where it came from, since I have sang the praises of talented voice actors and criticized projects with shameless stunt casting in the past. This is one of those cases where I clearly wasn't in the right state of mind, should have taken a second look at what I wrote before posting it, but didn't and now I feel like a [synonym for a donkey] about it
