    Has any noticed that most of the Starscream actors always play Cobra Commander.

    Chris Latta (G1 Starscream) and G.I joe's Cobra Commander
    Micheal Dobson (A/E/C Starscream) and Valour vs Venom's Cobra Commander

    and now Charlie Adlier (Movie Starscream) now as G.I.Joe Absoulette's Cobra Commander.

    I know Starscream and Cobra Commander are coward who want to dominate but their actors has voiced Starscream and Cobra commander....so know Tom Kenny needs to voice another Cobra Commander and they guy who voiced Sigam 6 Cobra Commander needs to voice the next Starscream (unfourtunateley he works for 4kids.......)

    I was thinking that Cartoon Network should make a new G.I Joe series after the live action movie next year....I mean Transformers did spectacular aswell as Spectacular Spiderman. Animated shows after Live action movies are awesome.

    Wouldn't that seam logical since its the same role pretty much I'm sure there are only some many people that can try and sound like Chris latta

    I doubt it's an accident that the two characters have had the same VA's. Chris Latta set the tone for both characters, and he did so using the exact same voice. (Not sure why, but apparently that was Latta's stock "evil guy voice.") So it makes sense that if someone can do the Starscream voice, they could also do the CC voice.

    Personally--and I have nothing but respect for Latta's work--I wouldn't mind hearing someone go a different direction vocally for Cobra Commander (or Starscream for that matter).

    Charlie Adler did that for Starscream, IMHO. Starscream still sounded snooty and cunning, it's just that the tone wasn't screechy like Chris Latta.

    To me, all Starscream VA's did a great job.

    I thought Dobson managed to do that pretty well with Armada Starscream. He was more raspy than screechy but still gave off enough of a Latta-vibe to please. Meanwhile, Dobson's Cobra Commander sounded drastically different than his Starscream, and actually came off like a bad Latta impression without any unique spin put on the voice.

    VA's that do a good scratchy voice must be hard to find. Or more realistically, it's easier because they have a contract with that company.

    From what I read in a very nice long bio that USED to be on imdb.com, written by the Cybertron Chronicles guy, he was already doing Cobra Commander when Transformers was in development and was specifically asked to use the same voice for Starscream.

    There may well be a different tone to base the CC voice on following the movie, unless Joseph Gordon Levitt is going to try and do the Latta version as well, which I kinda doubt.

    Wait... Levitt is CC in the film?
    REALLY? Not exactly the person I'd hire for the role (the casting I don't think have made a step wrong otherwise FWIW).

    He may not be an obvious choice, to be sure. But from what I've seen he's a pretty decent actor, so there's no telling how he's handling the role. I'm certainly keeping an open mind about it.
    I do question Sienna Miller as the Baroness, though.
