People with deep voices

I’m obsessed with people with deep voices for some odd reason, especially men, so I’d like to garner as many as I possibly can so I can watch videos of them and drool. :smack: No, I don’t really drool to them.
I already have a list of some; I will not tell you how many are on there, but there are a lot. :smiley: So if you could name some celebrities with deep voices you know of, that would be quite awesome.
While you’re at it, do me a favor and don’t comment about how weird this topic is. I know full well.

Well, I have these people on my list (and more), so we can rule them out.

Tay Zonday

Sean Connery.

Well me of course.:wink:

Wow, I have an SDMB crush :o

That was entertaining, Sampiro.
mmm

There’s a generational touchstone to people between about 35-50: the Nostradamus documentary narrated by Orson Welles. It scared the hell out of all of us- it probably terrified way more people than War of the Worlds did- and those I’ve talked to about it all agree it wouldn’t have been a tenth as effective without Orson’s voice. If Orson said it, then by God it must be true. (He was to the 70s and early 80s what Morgan Freeman is today in the “go to dignified-almost-Shakespearean narrator” department, except where Morgan comes across like a favorite uncle Orson came across like the grandfather who you feared and secretly hated when he visited.)

Turns out, I love you. :slight_smile:

Leonard Cohen.

Brad Roberts

Gary Owens.

Eugene Pallette. I win.

Trace Adkins

Sampiro, speaking as a woman, if we all needed further evidence of an inherently unfair universe, it’s the fact that you are gay. (Yeah, like *I *could have gotten you anyway…:rolleyes:)

Cue the Rick Roll

Baso profundo Maxim Mikhailov.

(Can’t link YouTube from work, but the coronation scene in Eisenstein’s Ivan the Terrible is a good example)

I like my deep voices gravelly:
Tom Waits
The incomparable Screamin’ Jay Hawkins

Me (you’ll have to take my word for it).

Liam Neeson
Leonard Nimoy
Albert Finney
John Rhys-Davies (Gimli and voice of Treebeard in LOTR; Sallah in Raiders of the Lost Ark)

Lee Hazlewood

Scott Walker

Andrew Eldritch from The Sisters Of Mercy.

These should fit the OP’s wish for smooth deep voices.
