Job Description

We're recording for an African-American version of King Midas for a video game. He is a strong, proud, yet cursed character, and the actor should be able to portray these conflicted feelings in his lines. King Midas is an older character, and the actor should not portray youth or inexperience in his delivery, instead focusing on establishing a character of great significance, dignity, and power. A good reference for the kind of voice we want is something like James Earl Jones:
Extra points if you can do a good Samuel L. Jackson impression FOR THE SELECTION FLAVOR TEXT ONLY. A picture of his concept art may be found here:

We have effects that we are able to add to the voice if needed, but we are looking for a voice that can bring this character to life. Please do not use effects on your voice. If you do any yelling lines, please turn down the input on your microphone so there isn't distortion.

Other requirements that the voice talent will need to know:

Only custom demos will be considered. There is no need to read all of the lines, but we would like to hear what you can do. Hiring will be dependent on being impactful with your demo.

Specific expertise that I'm seeking:

The type of recording we are looking for is someone who will get into character and not just read the lines--play off of movie/pop culture references and show us some diversity in tone.

File Format:

The format is a single mono .wav file of 44khz.

Timeframe for delivery:

We'll need the voice-over recorded and delivered to us within 1 day of acceptance.
