Unlike most people, I first saw James Earl Jones not as Vader or Mufasa - but as the presenter of 'The Making of Jurassic Park' documentary. A VHS copy hunted down in a Virgin Megastore back in the day.
After that, I knew James Earl Jones as Mufasa.
Then, in 2005, as Darth Vader. Well, I knew he was Vader, but I only watched the 'original' trilogy for the first time in 2005 across three days, as I watched all six Star Wars films chronologically.
Amazing how such a booming voice can be so useable (a better word? anyone?)... because, no-one watches The Lion King and thinks that Vader's voice doesn't work because it sure as hell does work.
