  1. We come to expect what we are familiar with. “The March of the Penguins” could only be voiced by Morgan Freeman, because that is who we’ve heard. Susan Sarandon has a great narrator voice. If she had been the narrator of the film, I’m sure that everyone would believe she was the only one who fit the role.

    • Yeah that’s true. James Earl Jones is the “only one” who could do the KJV bible on audio 🙂 I guess I’m wondering why male voices are chosen over female in the movie industry far more times than not.
