Listen to the Crazy Vocal Talents Behind Clone Wars

Two of the immensely talented voice actors of Clone Wars treated us to a show of their vocal abilities. Hear how Obi-Wan Kenobi got his voice, and listen to the sweet sounds of Star Wars's clones and monsters.

We met with James Arnold Taylor, who voices Obi-Wan Kenobi, and Dee Bradley Baker, who voices all of the Clonetroopers as well as many of the show's more monstrous beings, at the Clone Wars press event last week.


Taylor has had an especially extensive and varied voice acting career. In addition to being the voice of Fox's "Animation Domination" promos and the current Fred Flintstone, Taylor is also an accomplished "voice double." He frequently stands in for celebrities when they aren't available for voice post-production, doing seamless imitations of actors like Nicolas Cage, Johnny Depp, and Michael J. Fox. Fortunately, his work voice matching Ewan MacGregor came in handy in his current role, as you can see in the video above.

Baker showed off the full range of his manic vocal talents, from serious and stolid clone to desperate child to fearsome alien creature:

The second season of Clone Wars premieres tomorrow night on Cartoon Network.

Loved it!

One of the things that I enjoy about the Special Features on DVDs is being able to learn about the voice actors who worked on various series. It is always fascinating when you recognize a voice on a show and then check them out on IMDB and see how many roles they have played.

Eartha Kitt, Richardo Montalban, Patrick Warburton, Brian Posehn, Richard Kind, Clancy Brown and Wendie Malick are heard everyday in my house in various afternoon cartoons. It is fantastic that some actors who may not be able to find work in 'young and hot' Hollywood are able to still make a living with voice work.

I hear Donald Sutherland and now Kiefer on what seems like every second commercial lately. They are very popular here in Canada.
