    I saw this guy on a detective show and he sounds like James Earl Jones. Remove some of the drawl and to me I did a triple take.
    Does Lucasfilm take outside inputs from just us regular folk for their future casting?
    And I'm not even sure if the guy would be interested but is James Earl Jones gets older there's plenty of animated series and things in the works so who knows? Hadn't some of the original cast been discovered in stranger ways?

    I'm probably the wrong guy to ask because I'm a huge Jones fan. He gets so many subtle nuances in his deep voice because he's such a good actor.

    Huh. I think that perhaps we have discovered JEJ's voice twin.
