Sorry, I fell short of the full ten this week. Better luck next time.
Some of these performers have recorded audio books, but not ones I have listened. Others are just my dream narrators.
Jeremy Irons–my all-time favorite male voice! He has recorded Brideshead Revisited and, of course, Lolita. I know Brideshead too well to bother listening to it and Lolita is not interesting to me. Maybe though he’ll do a new audiobook before too long, but given his reputation for playing sickos, I imagine any book would be disturbing. What a waste of a superb voice! He should be the lord of the manor–and not an evil one.
Perfect for westerns, or cowboy romances.
Sadly, it’s too late in the day I imagine, to expect a new audiobook from Sean Connery. But, oh that voice! Perfect for kilted romances.
A man can be disliked and still have an interesting voice. A chinless wonder of the highest order to read a high society book or a tale of wrong-doing in Parliament or a slippery adviser to a Monarch would all be great audio stories for him.
Paul would be wonderful narrating any number of fun books. A family vacation story, a hapless love affair book with a good ending–anything fun.
The Boss would have been perfect for Shot Gun Love Songs, but any down-on-your luck, guy books or road trip away from bad luck book would be his thing.
I’d love Hugh to read the male lead in a multi-performer romcom or chicklit.
Robbie, in his Hagrid voice, would be perfect to read a children’s fantasy series–not HP but some other new adventure.
