[[ScaryBlackMan U.S. Army Ranger]]. Played blue-eyed [[Film/ConanTheBarbarian1982 Thulsa Doom]]. The voice of {{God}}, [[Franchise/StarWars Darth Vader]], [[Disney/TheLionKing Mufasa]], General [[TheDanza James]] [[VideoGame/CommandAndConquerTiberianSun Solomon]], and (in a single Treehouse of Horror episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'') Maggie Simpson. Also did commercials for Verizon for a while (and its predecessor Bell Atlantic).

Living proof that sometimes, all you really need to be a {{Badass}} is the [[BadassBaritone perfect voice]]. A noted actor of stage and screen, '''James Earl Jones''' (January 17, 1931-) is famous for his deep voice that can either be [[EvilSoundsDeep sinister]] (e.g. Darth Vader) or paternal (Mufasa), but is regardless authoritative and commanding -- even more so when you consider he had to [[StutterStop overcome a severe stutter in his youth]]. His voice is also remarkable for being naturally [[BassoProfondo of bass register]], which is indeed very rare. He gets a fair amount ''more'' respect on the stage, where he played a number of [[Creator/WilliamShakespeare Shakespearean]] roles (including being one of the first African American actors to play the lead in ''Theatre/{{Othello}}'') and was a fixture on the African-American art-theater circuit (he was the lead at the opening performance in several of August Wilson's ''Pittsburgh Cycle'', most famously ''Theatre/{{Fences}}''.)
