Who would you want to Narrate your life?

Asked by Mat74UK (4649points) September 1st, 2010

So with everything you have achieved (or not) throughout your life some nutter decides to make a film about you, who would you want to be the voice of your life!
Morgan Freeman is out (he’s a given).

I think I’d go with Sir David Attenborough.

Guess I’ll go with Emma Watson reading from a script.

Dennis Haysbert, the All State spokesman, or the first black president on “24”.

Sir Ken Robinson from the TED talk conferences.

iamthemob's avatar

I know you said Morgan Freeman was out…but I think that he’s actually contractually obligated to narrate everything that happens everywhere ever…

…but in a world where that were not true…Bobcat Goldwaite. I have no idea how to spell his name…but I want him to talk my life…

MacBean's avatar

@marinelife YES. ♥!!!

Hugh Laurie, Stephen Fry, Jim Dale, Benedict Cumberbatch and Jon Hamm would also make my short list.

Weird Al, as the White and Nerdy guy.

@free_fallin I love you for saying Bill Murray.

Pied_Pfeffer's avatar

Sandra Bullock. She’s great at getting across humor pointed at herself and passion about a certain topic with just her voice.

free_fallin's avatar

@chels I freaking love Bill Murray!

OreetCocker's avatar

Would have to be Harry Nilsson for me. Still use The Point to get my kids to sleep, so they’d be used to the sound of his voice.

rooeytoo's avatar

I would choose Stephen Frye (@macbean – maybe we can share him) or Jeremy Clarkson, he is such a smart mouth, you have to love him or maybe hate him.

That said, @wundayatta gets the prize for the best answer!!! You are lucky though, my guy, Brandon is his name, gets really annoyed when I disobey, you can just hear the irritation in his voice or am I being paranoid???

Dewey420's avatar

could i get Charlie Chaplain to perform my life story perhaps?...or ya know maybe Downey Jr. doing chaplain.

oxenfree's avatar

George Cloony (: i love his voice haha

BoBo1946's avatar

btw, Cecil B. DeMille directed and narrated the Ten Commendments. I’ve always thought he had an awesome voice.

mrrich724's avatar

I liked the voice of the narrator of the life of Will Ferrell in the movie Stranger than Fiction.

Peter Jones would be pretty cool too.

He was “the book” in the hitchhikers series.
