[[ScaryBlackMan U.S. Army Ranger]]. Played blue-eyed [[Film/ConanTheBarbarian1982 Thulsa Doom]]. He ''is'' {{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]] [[BassoProfundo voice]].

Here is a clear demonstration of just how perfect his voice is for the role (or rather, a demonstration of how lame things would have been without him): A pre-voiceover clip showing [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KQFho0_G1VI Darth Vader voiced by his on-screen character's actor, David Prowse]], who had the right stature for the character (as James himself was too short).

cast later, after George Lucas et al realized Prowse's own voice, uh, wouldn't work.
