The Star Wars franchise has never been shy about using voice actors to perform multiple roles across its many animated properties. And the talent pool is deep with legends like Tom Kenny, Dee Bradley Baker, and Corey Burton all voicing multiple roles — but the community took a moment today to recognize one of its best villains and best talents: the inimitable Clancy Brown.
Brown’s gravelly voice is instantly recognizable to any fan of genre entertainment. He’s voiced Superman’s arch-enemy Lex Luthor in the DC Animated Universe, Surtur in Thor: Ragnarok, and Mr. Krabs in SpongeBob SquarePants. And that’s not counting his live-action work such as The Kurgan in Highlander and the absolutely reprehensible Captain Byron Hadley in The Shawshank Redemption. And among Brown’s impressive resume are no less than six roles in the franchise.
