THE TRUE VOICE OF DARTH VADER

-
Darth Vader On The TV
As most of us Star Wars fans know, Darth Vader was originally played by David Prowse, even though his voice was being conveyed by James Earl Jones. And do you know what? It's a good job too. If George Lucas never came up with this idea, what else could we have expected to hear! Something like this, perhaps? May the horse be with jew!

Arnold Schwarzenegger as Darth Vader


Arnie once stated to a reporter that he thought the Terminator sequels were a lot worse than the Star Wars prequels. 'But at least George might be able to rectify his mistakes', he said, 'Whereas damage limitation on the Terminators are reaching critical-mass'.


Rab C Nesbitt as Darth Vader


With all due respect, I'd say some Scottish people are very difficult to understand, especially when their pissed out of their heads. So, what do you think would happen if said pissed-Scottish person had his own show on BBC 2, and decided to don a certain darkly hued cape and helmet? Och Ei Mi Dark Side!!!


Samuel L Jackson as Darth Vader


Samuel Lego Jackson (Yes. His middle name is Lego) was offered the role of Jedi second-in-command, Mace Windu, after he said on public radio how he'd love to star in a Star Wars film. Gosh! Talk about ask, and thee shall receive!  


Kenneth Williams as Darth Vader


Now here's a piece of useless trivia for you! Did you know that Mister Darth Vader himself, David Prowse, starred opposite Kenneth Williams in 'Carry on Henry VIII', as well as Kenneth's very own seventies television show? Well, every bad-boy needs to take it up the Khyber every now and then, eh?


Bane as Darth Vader


Unlike Darth's funky sounding voice, Bane's bloody annoying voice was originally going to be much more distorted in 'The Dark Knight Rises'. And, for fairly obvious reasons, his lines had to be re-recorded for the final cut, because it was nigh-on impossible to understand what he was trying to say.


R Lee Ermey as Darth Vader


Stanley Kubrick initially hired R Lee Ermey so he could advise him on how a drill sergeant should act in his war-time drama, 'Full Metal Jacket'. However, when Stanley started to see Lee in action, he said to himself, 'f*ck this for a game of soldiers', and the rest is now cinematic history.


James Earl Jones as Darth Vader


James started taking acting lessons so he could control his timorous stutter. This problem started when he was a small child, and he struggled with it through college, through the military, until he and his folks cottoned on to the idea that acting was the key to curbing his resolve.



And on that note, dear reader, I'd like to leave you on one last video, depicting how George and the gang chose Earl to become the voice of Darth Vader. Please enjoy.
