More than a few of Hollywood's most renowned actors achieved fame, in part, because of their distinctive voices. James Earl Jones, for example, has a voice that's both silky and deep which has garnered him roles as a narrator and voice actor. In fact, the older A-list star is even set to voice Mufasa in the live-action version of The Lion King in 2019. Other talented performers use their melodic vocals to carry entire film projects, like Scarlett Johansson did with Her; or to portray cartoon voices, like Tom Hanks did with Woody.
Indeed, a powerful voice can make a career, and the best actors and actresses with noteworthy tones are rarely without a high-paying role. Which actors have the best timbres, though? Who would never have made it without the striking sounds of those vocal cords?
