    He says he's had it with Lucas and he won't do the voice. Who will they get! It's a travesty!

    It just wouldn't be the same without Jones. :(

    Meh... it's not like we've heard enough of him to really worry about it too much. I'm sure they'll find a suitable replacement.

    Who cares? JEJ had like 3 lines in ROTS. Give Hayden a Target Vader Voicechanger mask and a tape recorder and move on. Let JEJ fade into obscurity doing CNN & Verizon promo voice overs.

    They could get Isaac Hayes. He'd be great.

    Vader: (to Luke and Leia) Hello, children! Want to try some of my chocolate Sithy *****?

    Yeah but Jones is an icon. Sure, they can do the voice without him, but he's the symbol of Vader. We have to have him. :(

    It's not like Jones is "known" for being the voice of Vader, and doing the voice over work for Disney doesn't make him an icon, nor does being the butt of 1 million ytmnd.com page jokes. Besides, you know Hayden will push to have Vader unmasked eventually, or at least partially...it's not like anyone pays to get the autograph of the guy in the suit if the audience can't see who it is.

    We don't really know enough about what Vader will sound like to make a judgement call. We really only heard a couple of lines out of him. I always wondered why they would pull in JEJ at thet end of ROTS, but after I heard his voice, it was really great. What I would imagine Vader sounding like.


    I [face_love] Hayden!

    He is Vader, though! His voice was so good there's not one other actor that should do it. Maybe if Jones really won't come back they could get George Clooney.

    Didn't Hayden do the lines they used in the trailer for ROTS? Sounded fine to me...

    Maybe they'll warp Hayden's voice so that he sounds like JEJ? [face_thinking]
