(Not really related to LOK, but you might find it interesting anyway.)

Recommendation #1: Have a cool voice, like the LoK voice actors or Peter Cullen =). Of course, to sound like Cullen you probably have to start smoking right now.

Having grown up with the Transformers, I was eagerly looking forward to hearing Peter Cullen's voice in WarCraft III since he was supposed to be in the cancelled WarCraft Adventures game, and he's been doing the narration for Blizzard's recent trailers. Unfortunately, he wasn't in the game at all, but that's ok since the game is fantastic. Still, his voice would have made it even better... Maybe it's because of nostalgia, but I still get goosebumps when I hear Optimus Prime talk in Transformers: The Movie :D .

Well, he did the voiceovers for the trailers, at least. I imagine it would cost a TON of money to get him to do dialogue for an entire game now.
