See, I would have suggested that James Earl Jones definitely would be better at this than Morgan Freeman, much as I love the man's voice. Freeman has a slightly tenor timbre at times, a gentle streak of vulnerability running through, like the ripple in fudge ripple ice cream. James Earl Jones does not. Let's not forget, after all, he was the voice of Lord Vader. If that isn't lordly and booming (with a British-favoured accent), I don't know what is.
Now, we could certainly start an anti- list and include people like, say, Kevin Costner. Tee hee! (I tickled myself with that...)
I suppose so, chained_bear, but in a different way. The booming voice should sound lordly, and the pronunciation favours British accents. However, Morgan Freeman especially is a truly great man with a truly great voice, and would doubtless pronounce Christopher Lee in a suitable fashion.
