    I didn't realized getting paid large sums of money to read lines in character was so demanding.

    I don't understand why it will be his last time?

    there is a lot of work to being a voice actor. You have to get the pitch and personality right for each character for each scene without really getting a chance 90% of the time to actually play through the game so u dont know how or what has changed.

    That voice is very rough on his vocal chords. I have a friend who does it for his Joker costume. Afterward, you can hear the wear it has.

    They should let me play the Joker. They won't let me because I'm not a Jedi master.

    Wait, did he voice Joker in Batman: TAS too? I can't remember.

    Anywho, voice acting does seem to be demanding, with all the stress on the throat and stuff (like a singer, probably). That's why for the final season of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Rob Paulsen didn't voice Raphael for that very reason. He wanted him and the other voice actors, who'd voiced all the characters constantly without a pay raise. Instead of meeting it, he threatened to leave, and they replaced him.

    He totally did the animated series and Batman Beyond.

    Shame. Out of all the men to portray The Joker voice or in person (Cesar Romero, Jack Nicholson, Mark Hamill, and Heath Ledger), Mark Hamill had to have been my favorite. He nailed the laugh to the point where it was hilarious and horrifying at the same time. Mark will be missed in his most infamous role following Luke Skywalker in the original Star Wars Trilogy.

    Other than Frank Welker (Transformers)........"The Voice" Steve Blum has had a long tenure voicing a single character (Wolverine).

    Isn't Rob Paulsen's normal voice similler to Raphael? I was under the impression it was.

    Voice acting sounds alot harder than it is but I guess some are easier than others. Any Simpsons fans here? Apparantly it was hard doing the voice for Marvin Munroe so the voice actor request that he was axed and some for Loretta from Family Guy.

    His voice was the first interpretation of the Joker I ever heard, still the best one too, it's sad to hear, though Debristorm is right, at a certain age, a voice like that would be hard on you
