Hmm, should those quotes be replaced with the names of the movies there from? I didn't do that originally because I didn't want any repeats but now I'm not sure.

The quotes are way more specific, so I would say only change it to film/play/show titles if you are also going to hyperlink them.

You know the entire point of this thread was to show the size of his recited spoken range.

Yeah those are some real impressive aimless shouts and random spoken parts that he's got

Well at this point I think you've made it your point clear, but that doesn't mean we all have to adhere to your preferences. This OP just serves as amusing trivia for one of the most famous bass voices out there. Not really harming the site's progress from my perspective.

Personally, I'd rather just see an OP with two sung notes and nothing else than one that looks like an unironic version of the Simon Pegg thread, but I guess that's just me. It's a shame that he hasn't recorded more singing, because he truly does have a great voice, and like you said, he is a very famous example of a bass indeed...but that fact alone doesn't make random shouts produced by him any more noteworthy than your average singer's.

As far as I can tell, the only reason the majority of the "notes" listed in the OP are included is out of desperation to list something in his thread.

You think recited spoken lines hit pitches purely on accident? That's ignorant. Many actors, and all professional voice actors, use techniques akin to singing to achieve their desired and intentional effect, which is why almost all voice actors are also singers.

Besides, if you don't like it, there's a very simple method around it.
