Of those mentioned, my favorite is Sean Connery. However, you should perhaps include Tom Hiddleston (at least when he's sounding like himself and not Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Owen Wilson or Lord Nooth (Early Man))

#2 and #3 are mostly recognizable for their accent, not saying their voice isn't memorable but if the focus of your poll is the voice then I don't think there should be any additional element of notability in the voice, the other options are perfect.

I agree, but that's also part of their recognizability.
Sam Sheppard is in this category, but some would say, "Sam who"?
Because you pointed this out, I realize that there is a flaw in the title.
Changed it to this.

I'm slow to recommend this addition because then it wouldn't be a face-off anymore and you know how I love good face-off polls but Morgan Freeman has that famous voice, so easy on the ears that he's been the most in-demand narrator (The March of the Penguins, Shawshank, etc.) for a few decades now.

Dennis Haysbert
James Earl Jones
Morgan Freeman

Was thinking Sam Jackson or Danny Glover, unless there is a better one!?

Or is that too tacky RF76?

Hahaha, "Or is that too tacky RF76?" No, I don't think it's tacky. Hmm, there are so many ways that you could do this: one non-Face-Off poll, two Face-Off Polls, one Face-Off poll...

After I last posted, I was thinking of Samuel Jackson, too. Oh, wow, and Danny Glover's a good one! Yesterday I just saw Glover in a new film, 'The Last Black Man in San Francisco.' He does such a good job in that movie that it's heartbreaking.  

Come to think of it, I still don't think a poll for African-American actors would be tacky but that would leave a poll with only white actors and that's a bit questionable, especially when not including James Earl Jones would be such an obvious omission; perhaps an all-inclusive poll would be best. Yeah, I agree with your instinct.

'Good one, btw. From these five, I'd go with James Earl Jones. What an unmistakable voice.

You gotta ask yourself one question.
Why am I not lucky enough to be in this Poll?

If you're going to suggest both polls, I recommend combining them.

Two lists in one poll suggestion?
Or a regular poll?
