Visit theforce.net for these news in detail. Personally I think it's a terrible idea :dis: :bored: :ermm: :mad:

Ok, that's a great decision. I love John-Rhys Davies, and his voice would be perfect for General Grevious. Good choice, M'Lord Lucas. ;) :)

Eh, I don't know about this. I don't want Grievous to sound like Gimli, that would suck! Hopefully he can branch out a bit. And I don't mean like Treebeard.

:ermm: Okay bad pun.

John-Rhys Davies has done a lot of voices over his career, so I think he can come up with something fairly unique. I never liked the idea of DeNiro doing the voice anyway. :p

I normally don't lurk in these waters, but that topic enticed me in. :)

Is this confirmed? Pretty cool, though why wouldn't they go with the actor who played him in the Clone Wars? That voice gave me the willies.

Are you being ironic or are you just nuts?:confused: John Rhys-Davies doesn't have a creeky, sinister voice... he's totally wrong!!!

Great choice.

Have you ever heard this guy's normal voice ? Gimli would sound dumb, sure, but I think JR-D can pull it off nicely.

Besides, with Gary Oldman we would be subject to more 5th Element comparisons. :Ogre:

I'm being totally serious, John-Rhys Davies has an amazing range of voices. I can't wait to hear how General Grevious sounds. And agreed Ceaser, I wasn't a fan of the idea of Gary Oldman doing the voice either. :)

The seperatist ship is surrounded by republic forces about to break in at any minute.

Dooku: We cannot give up general, we must face them though we almost certainly will die.

Grievous: YES!!!!!

I suppose it could be worse. It could of been Ozzy Osbourne. :p

I agree about the Gary Oldman part, totally, but I was hoping for a more sinister, cruel voice. Let's hope he does a good job.

You want sinister and cruel? John-Rhys Davies voiced the villian McBeth on Gargoyles for one, where he displayed a wonder dark quality to his voice. And that's just the tip of the iceberg for the various voice work and rolls he's played. I think he'll be able to pull it off quite well. :)
