Top 7... Worst celebrity voiceovers

Shares

The Game: Kingdom Hearts II (PS2)
The Star: Mena Suvari as Aerith

Mena Suvari sure is easy on the eyes. But without her ample assets to backup her acting, her digital performance falls flat. Take Kingdom Hearts II for example. The choppy impersonal delivery of her lines as Aerith, grates our ears with... unnatural pauses... every... few... syllables.

Suvari’s robotic line-reading makes her stand out like a sore thumb every time she speaks. But it’s her high pitched inflections - that adds a parenthetical question mark to nearly everything she says - which makes her portrayal of Final Fantasy’s most famous female, Aerith truly creepy.

    Wow. Some of these audio samples send chills down my spine. Maybe you guys at GR should write an article on the Top 7 Best Voice Actors as well. My earliest memory of really good voice acting was the guy who played Marius from Diablo II. Probably not the best but definitely my fondest. I'd like to hear the gamers' choices as well.

    I remember the good old days when the most you would hear Sparx say was Bzzz, bzzz,bzzzzzz. Also some of these were pretty terrible especially the Aerith one that was also creepy.

    First? Yeah, while both the movie and game Spiderman 2 were awesome, Tobey McGuire definitely was not into doing the voice work for the game. Awsome game nonetheless...

    i don't think Rollins' voice over was that bad. Although it really is hard to do much with those lines... and he does scare me, too.

    "We’re a little scared of Henry Rollins. The badass Black Flag leader could probably crush our heads with his bare hands and still have enough leftover aggression to shred up a solo that punches today’s poppy punk straight in the gut." You must be really scared, so scared you cover your eyes everytime he appears. If you peeked between your fingers every once in a while, you might notice he doesn't play guitar.
