Itís one thing to read lines but I imagine voice actors put a lot of thought and effort into their performance. When I heard those samples, it was almost as if a different person was speaking in my minds eye.

Iím just saying that I could imagine someone wanting to have a say over that. Imagine if RDJ heard something like the samples presented when he heard himself inside the Iron Man suit?
Many variables man, I don't know where to start. Some voice actors just can't have that say, some don't want to or they don't care and some are contractualy disabled from doing so and they have to abide by the decision if they've signed the contract. The voice acting world is actualy highly competitive. If one actor refuses to be open to modulation, then the next one will be and he gets the part. Voice actors in general are not very picky because there are always 10 more behind them, ready to do thier part and funnily enought, even in the same voice.
My dream is to collect as many cartel market items as possible to be able to make cosplay with them.
