The SW.com Homing Beacon newsletter talked about the voice of the Clone War cartoon with a clip about Episode III's General Grievous. Here's a clip:


Tatyana Yassukovich plays Barriss Offee. She can be heard as the voice of the storyteller in 2000's Chocolat.

Andre Sogliuzzo returns to play Captain Typho. The actor also provides the voice of all the clone troopers, the ARC troopers, and the battle droids. He also provided the voice of the clones in LucasArts' Star Wars: Clone Wars video game. Known to many fans as the voice of Bender on "Futurama," John DiMaggio not only plays a Padawan in the micro-series, but is also the menacing voice of General Grievous in the series. General Grievous is an Episode III character who makes his debut in the final episode of Star Wars: Clone Wars. Don't expect much in common between Grievous and Bender though. The General of the droid army isn't likely to invite any Jedi to bite his shiny metal posterior.

Durge out..

I haven't seen Futurama very many times, but Bender's voice kinda annoys me. Hopefully it won't sound too much like him, if it is "menacing." He better not have any stupid lines like Durge (in the comics), then I'll hate him even more. :p

Under John DiMaggio he has also voiced The Scotsman in Samuari Jack.

So he does have some versitility in his voice.

I hope he sounds nothing like Bender. How distracting would THAT be? :D

You can hear a sampling of his (Gen Grievous) voice near the end of latest Clone Wars 1.5 minute trailer for Season 2

I will post a link soon

If he speaks in the cartoon, he will speak in the movie.

Sorry Durge, Star Wars.com's Newletter had this Quote from Rick McCallum



""By now, the public has been introduced to General Grievous, the deadly leader of the Separatist army. Though he makes his cartoon debut next month in the Star Wars: Clone Wars micro-series, he still has a long way to go for his film incarnation. "The wireframe model has been built and approved, and now we are starting modeling and animating him," says McCallum. Grievous has yet to be placed into any shots, and who will provide the voice of the menacing General has yet to be determined. "We haven't even looked for him yet," says McCallum. "There's still a long way to go. Voice-work for Grievous and other characters isn't likely to begin until August or November."" :eek: :D :crazed:

Just because DiMaggio is the voice in the cartoon doesnt mean he will do it in the movie!

But, isn't it interesting that they'd give Grievous a voice in the cartoons before deciding on his voice for the films? Granted, not all of the micro-series voices are "dead on" imitations of the film actors (Palpatine and Dooku sounding least like their film counterparts, IMO), but you'd think they'd want them to approximate each other. Since the voice tracks for Grievous will most likely be done in the USA, there's a pretty good chance that DiMaggio just might be asked to do it for Episode III. However, it's certainly not a lock for him, given Lucas' rather capricious nature.
