     Have you noticed... [In reply to]  

how Lee Pace's voice goes all soft, sexy, smoldering, seductive when he gets to the end of some of his lines? For example when he says the line, "and the lake shall shine and burn" When he gets to burn, I am in full thud. I would love for him to do an audio book. Heck, the man could read the dictionary, and it would be sexy.




Please call me, Cassie.

     Ahhhh, don't get me started [In reply to]  

...on what an incredible voice actor he is. It's not just the timbre and resonance of the voice, but also the way he wields it so skillfully -- like a maestro with his musical instrument. And his line readings are always so interesting and so unusual -- with a kind of syncopated beat -- and yet always so apt and so effective.

In the line you quoted, "and the lake shall shine and burn" -- the last two words have such a haunting, almost hollow, feel to them, as though he can see the horror of the prophecy coming true right before his eyes. And note the way he snaps out the last two words of his line to Gandalf in the tent, "You will forgive me, Mithrandir, if I finish it" -- almost as though "finish it" were one word, which is completely apt if you think about it: Thranduil is tired of this stuff and wants it to be over quickly.

And there are examples galore throughout Pushing Daisies: in the very first episode, when Chuck goes to wake him up to ask about the reward for solving the mystery of her death, note how his voice sounds so sleepy when he answers Chuck, with just a hint of saliva drooling out of the corner of his mouth as he struggles to wake up -- simply brilliant acting.

And OMG the way he tells the story to Alexandria in The Fall: the musicality of his narration is so so beautiful, with just the right amount of rise and fall in pitch to make sure it's never monotonous and always natural-sounding. Sometimes I start playing The Fall on my laptop just before bed, and go to sleep to the sound of his voice.

Yeah, I would love it if he did some audio books!!

I could go on, but I need to go make dinner now. Laugh

Yes when listening to him in some of his interviews; I'm just swooning over his voice. He can read me a bedtime story anytime. He can sing rock a bye baby and I'll fall asleep after THUDDING a few times on the floor.HeartHeartHeartHeartEvil

     Lovely fanvid!! [In reply to]  

Thanks for bringing that back, Cassie -- it's one of my favorite fanvids, so skillfully put together, intercutting from the song to the key moments between Michael and Delyssia and back to the song again. At about the 1:00 mark is another example of what I mean by his incredible voice acting: you can almost hear the tears in his eyes as his voice breaks just a little, saying "So we'll be the best in New York." And a few seconds later, the disappointment in the whispered, "Or not."

Even if Lee didn't look the way he does, his voice alone would have me THUDDDDDDing and clutching my thud cushions for comfort. HeartHeartHeart

Don't get me started on this one, the way he says 'Mithrandir' as well. Also when they are outside the tent. Gives me chills! And yes, he is so done with everything and everyone, but who can blame him?!

And two DOS examples that always get me anew:

"
I myself, suspect a more prosaic motive. Attempted burglary, or something of that ilk." Also his face is priceless when he says the last word. Cool


and


"A shadow that grows in the dark. A sleepless malice as black as the oncoming wall of night. So it ever was. So will it always be."


Ok, basically I would have to put everything he says in here, because it's all mhhhhh... Evil

The fortunes of the world will rise and fall, but here in this kingdom we will endure!

Point! Hurin is described as being short/slight for an Edain actually. But also precisely because of the difference in physicality, I would love to see LP in this just for the heck of it. However, like I said, this would be another "dad" role, and I'd want to see LP take on a role with a different dimensionSmile Like the charismatic Annatar... or really, Feanor... Fingolfin might be another interesting prospect. Bottomline: Whichever is the lead characterEvil


Agreed! We need LP to be the lead in an ME movie no matter what role he plays. Angelic

Re Hurinís description: Lol, I actually didnít consciously remember that Hurin was described as short/slight. Thatís so funny that my brain didnít remember the actual words of his description, but I still picture him the way heís described!Shocked

You should try NaNo some time, Eruvandi. It's a lot of fun!



Oooooh, I was soooo tempted to try doing it this past year, but I still had some college course to finish up when it came around and barely had time to sleep, much less write. Frown Iíll have graduated by the time NaNo happens this year though, so maybe, depending on what Iím doing by then, I can participate. I sort of doubt that Iíd get a whole novel written, but as long as I try, Iíll have made more progress than if I didnít try at all, right? Angelic
