Personally I have an extremely deep voice, though obviously I can't really tell and don't listen to recordings of my own voice all that often; but it's probably amongst the top 5 or so of anyone I've ever met (say roughly 20000 people). The best anecdote I could give is from when I worked at McDonald's during college, naturally I got a ridiculous number of people telling me to get into radio (and a few short lived opportunities therein), which I suppose could have been a potential career path for also not finding a job. However there was this one guy who said essentially "I was expecting this giant dude, with huge hands (like Michael Clarke Duncan I suppose), then I got you." I'm 6'1 and relatively thin though not altogether unimposing, but I'm certainly not MCD, God rest his soul.

I guess Obamadeep is probably the threshold for me, though for anyone who doesn't have a deep voice nor an accent as long as they don't sound incredibly nerdy they all sound relatively similar to me; I can recognize voices but distinguishing their depth is fairly difficult above a certain range.

I guess you can't edit poll posts? Others for consideration: Clancy Browndeep, the Big Aristotledeep, and the normal Aristotle.

Sarevok is perfection. So Kevin Michael Richardson wins. I will seek him out in various media just to listen to his voice.

Brad Shoemakerdeep perhaps, though his ability to go into high pitches means his voice isn't quite that deep; personally apart from shrill laughter I'm completely unable to go into anything of a middling range; I suppose when I yell I barely cross the threshold of baritone.

I'm sorry, but it's the motherfucking Marianas Trench son:

The Mariana Trench or Marianas Trench[1] is the deepest part of the world's oceans. It is located in the western Pacific Ocean, to the east of the Mariana Islands. The trench is about 2,550 kilometres (1,580 mi) long but has an average width of only 69 kilometres (43 mi). It reaches a maximum-known depth of 10.911 km (10,911 ± 40 m) or 6.831 mi (36,069 ± 131 ft) at the Challenger Deep, a small slot-shaped valley in its floor, at its southern end,[2] although some unrepeated measurements place the deepest portion at 11.03 kilometres (6.85 mi).[3]

Completely unrelated to the topic and from the pov of someone who has never seen this before I have to say that the final scene when he decides to enter the house while dozens of SWAT are on his tail... coupled with the car + neighborhood he was in seemed like it was made to bring back san andreas flash backs.

You know the big guy in Underworld? Yeah, his voice is unedited as far as I know. But James Earl Jones wins.

@aterons: I bet that the guys at Rockstar drew some inspiration from that music video, so it's more like the other way around, San Andreas was made to evoke this video and the many other pop culture references in the game.

I have absolutely no problem whatsoever with Adele, but somebody pointed out that 'rolling in the deep' is a pretty good euphemism for sex with a chubby lady, and now I can't think of it meaning anything else.

Michael Clarke Duncandeep.

He has the body to go with the voice. He's the real deal. No offense to Mr. Neeson.

May he rest in peace.
