    I read it in Starlog magazine. Anybody ever heard (of) this guy?

    What will R2's voice sound like? I kinda imagine him sounding like the fat one out of Abbot & Costello.

    I tell you, it'll make following his conversations with 3PO a lot less confusing. Still, I got quite attached to those beeps and stuff he made in episodes 1-3.

    I swear I've seen a thread on this somewhere.

    But, anyways, I don't think this is true. Why would he ruin Artoo's image?

    I think if Artoo got given a human voice it would be female, and possibly like you'd expect a black woman to have. It just seems right somehow.

    I for one am more interested in finding out what cool new gadgets he (she?) will have!

    I think David Letterman would make a good voice for R2-D2.

    Something tells me that if R2 had a voice, it would sound eactly like Ben Burtt, and his dialogue would be the most audible thing in the movie!

    According to imdb he is best known for his part as the Green Cross Code man in a series of public information films.

    My sources tell me he sounds like Sylverster Stallone, had he been born and raised in England.
