  • Earl Boen is the lechuck voice. it's like trying to change mario's voice or Guybrush's voice. Many years into the future when Earl retires from voice acting, they should find the best Earl Boen impersonator! not try and find another voice for lechuck!

    Kevin Blackton (Human LeChuck) was that man :)

  • I didn't like the other LeChuck actor (especially his harr, harr harr), but his "So good of you to join us" was much better than Boen's version. I hope it's not the final version of the line, since I know Boen can do better than that. Good to have him back, though.

  • That's just plain awesome
    Love Earl Boen as LeChuck, he just wasn't the same. Not that the other actor wasn't good, but Earl Boen is irreplacable.

  • I'm probably gonna get hung, drawn and quartered but I personally don't see what's so great about Earl Boen doing LeChuck. His voice just reminds me of the buffoony, idiotic, not funny LeChuck version from CMI which I don't like, much prefer the guy who does the human LeChuck voice better personally. Maybe it'll be better once I hear more of him in chapter 5, but comparing the two in those clips I have to say that the original guy delivered that line better in my opinion.

    Again, I know I'm gonna get hung, drawn and quartered for this, which is why I have locked myself in an impregnable bunker so...nyah nyah! :P

  • I still wish we could have heard Kevin Blackton's (Human LeChuck's) take on the Demon LeChuck voice.

    Me too. He had the Earl Boen sound and was (probably still is) a brilliant actor. Every line sounded right.

  • It's cool to see TTG go back and change stuff like this in old episodes. I hope this means they will do some bugfixes before releasing the full game on DVD as well.

    Agreed. I had a problem with that line, too.

  • I'm not really one of these people on the Boen-Bandwagon per se. The original voice actor didn't grind my gears or even really affect me at all. Until I watched both videos I didn't even really notice a difference.

    That said, I do actually prefer Boen's voice in the aforementioned video(s), but I wasn't pulling my hair and teeth out in wait of TTG to bring Boen back. Alliteration, an awesome attribute some sentences still strive toward today. :cool:
