    If they want to give the new MOTU movie some class, and keep the old school fans happy, they really need to give the voice acting job to Langella. I doubt Langella would want to do any live action work on a He-Man movie, but a paycheque for one or two days of recording his voice in a soundbooth? I highly doubt he would say no to that!
    Totally agree with you! If the TF fans can have Peter Cullen as Optimus, then surely we can have Frank Langella! the guys amazing, He transcended the first film's awfulness, and gave a performance that really made you not see the latex! brilliant!

    Cheers AJ

    (Plus I want him to fulfill the ONLY promise that I clung too after the disapointment of the film, 'I'll Be Back!!')

    I liked Campbell Lane, mostly because Jack wrote his Skeletor the way I would have written him myself, slightly crazy and more than a little sarcastic.

    I wouldn't hate Langella in the role in a new movie, though. I did like his Skeletor as well, even though the dialogue was a bit over the top.

    Man, was that ever a tough one! I've always been partial to Alan Oppenheimer, but Frank Langella just brings out the raw evil and scary intellect in the character. Sorry Alan!

    I have to give to Frank Langella. Of course we didn't get that much into Skeletor's personality, but you did get a lot out of the character in one film. You did percieve him as dangerous and yet he was very manipulative and intelligent.

    I freaking LOVED Dobson in the 200X Cartoon......... For the first time I REALLY felt like Skelly was an evil menace. The day I watched the the "Movie" on Cartoon Network I was damn near giddy because of his demeanor.

    Oppenheimer. He found a great, dry and skeletal voice for the character that is just perfect for it. Dobson more or less tried to imitate the original with the squeaky voice. Langella's Skeletor was a very different character alltogether. Lane suited NA version well

    I went Oppenheimer too. I like the acting in his more casual haggard day-to-day Skeletor. I love them all too. Even the NA one was good in his own way.
