Peter Sallis

I'm sure I'm not the only one who can't imagine Wallace speaking with any other voice apart from that of Peter Sallis - but I would imagine that the recording required for these episodes will be more than for every other Wallace appearance combined, plus Mr. Sallis is now 87 years of age... So are Telltale aiming to or hopeful of getting his vocal talents in the games?

    You're right. Christopher Lee really needs to be Feathers...;)

  • I think getting Peter Sallis for Wallace is much more important than it was for getting, say, Bill Farmer or Nick Jameson to reprise their roles, simply because no other person has done the voice acting for Wallace so I can't imagine anyone else doing it. I personally will be very disappointed if Sallis is not doing the voices.

    yeah.
    or maybe they can waste even more time creating a Peter Sallis voice generator. then anyone can talk like him! i'd buy one!

  • Any Wallace And Gromit production wont be the same or have the same feeling as the original episodes. Btw, Peter Sallis also did the voice for the Farmer in Chicken Run ( another Aardman film ). Im sure they can set up a studio in England and get it shipped over to the states. As an example that was what was done for Axel Rose's dialog recorded for the radio station in GTA: San Andreas, as Rockstar North is based in Scotland, and Axel is from USA.

    And Gromit never speaks so no need to make him suddenly start speaking; thats a no. Perhaps speech bubbles of pictures of what he's thinking above his head, to give hints to Wallace. Gromit is the one who adds comedic value.

    No offense, but I don't think that's the case. I think a guy named Tony Haygarth voiced him.

    Regardless, I do agree that long-distance voice acting is possible. It all depends on Peter Sallis's health. And you have a great idea about Gromit's 'thoughts.' :)

  • While it would be pretty upsetting if Telltale couldn't get Peter Sallis, they'd probably get somebody else who'd be almost or just as good. A lot of Telltale's voice actors so far are brilliant (in particular William Kasten, Roger L. Jackson, David Boyll and, erm...Matt Chapman) so I'm sure they'd find somebody fitting. :)

    Ooh, yeah, Telltale. Better hurry along.

  • @xChri5x said: Did he do the voice work in the other two Wallace & Gromit games?

    Edit: Sounds like he did in this clip from Project Zoo

    I'm fairly sure he did. Nothing makes a game feel more like the shorts like a fine ol' bucket of Peter Sallis's voice.

    All this talk about the voice actor for Gromit, and to my recollection, Gromit NEVER spoke, he was, if you will, the silent partner.
    Wallace was voiced, and can only ever be voiced by Peter Sallis.

    Looks like I'll have to play Gromit. I can do a great impression! Here! Have a look. *Holds breath and moves eyebrows around*.
