Voices

So there's been a lot of talk, especially in fic comments, about various "kinks" that people have. My number one has always been voices. Not necessarily the kind of "deep, booming" voice Edmund Blackadder once tried so memorably to imitate - James Earl Jones's voice does nothing for me - but a voice that can be used as an instrument, something that is flexible, layered, and shiver-inducing. And I've been lucky to find quite a few men that have voices that I respond to. A few samples:

Alan Rickman

Kevin McKidd (just the first 1:40)

So tell me: who else should I be listening to?
