Sticking with just American, MY vote goes to either:

 

ORSON WELLES,  or....

 

JOHN HUSTON.

 

But, That's just the white guys.

 

To be more liberal, throw in:

 

ROSCOE LEE BROWN;

 

JAMES EARL JONES.

Oh, please.  The only real "voice of God" was that of John Facenda.

An easy one. Charlton Heston as the voice of The Burning Bush in "The Ten Commandments."

And, I'm happy to say I had the great pleasure of working with him --  he did some voiceover work for me and was a great gentleman.

Orson Welles for me with James Earl Jones a close second and James Mason third.

Alanis Morissette from the movie Dogma.

I really enjoyed that movie. A little gory in spots, but amusing and funny.

I'll go with Charlton Heston's in The Ten Commandments - his was The Voice at The Burning Bush.

 

 

George Burns.

Dang! I was gonna add George Burns' for Oh, God! - you beat me to it

Percy Rodriguez...who's voice-over narration work in the original trailer for "Jaws" seems to come "from up on high"...

Totally forgot about James Earl Jones since I was only thinking about "studio system" actors.

JEJ would be perfect, too.

Question...how does anypne knows what he sounds like?

 

The term comes from old-time movie newsreel narrators and radio news broadcasters, like Walter Cronkite, and like the voice that narrates the newsreel sequence in CITIZEN KANE. A big booming low frequency voice. The term probably came before that, in reference to theatrical speakers, orators, Shakespearian actors, etc.

The first person that came to mind...(or the first 'voice' that popped into my head) was the late, great, Barry White!  If he had the voice of God, then everyone in heaven will be gettin' their groove on.

 

Am I going to hell?   :o

I also like this movie a lot.   Some of the banter between the angels,  Matt and Ben,  is very funny.

 

George Carlin is also a hoot.

and there's an end to it...

And speaking of George and The Ten Commandments.......

 

(...naaah, I better not post that YouTube video of that old routine of his here...ya never know...it might upset a few folks and take this so far somewhat innocuous thread in a whole different and "dangerous" direction...but I certainly agree with George's take on it anyway...and for anyone who's interest I've now piqued, sorry but you'll have to seek out George's routine for yourself on YouTube...it's there though, alright!) ;)

Well, Best Voice Of God doesn't specify films..

 

I'll take Bill Cosby's on his vinyl 33-1/3 RIGHT! - the Noah sketch.

HA!

 

I was thinking  of Wally as I was catching up on the replies.  Thought it'd be funny!

 

I guess great minds DO think alike!  :P

And, if any recall, Alanis Morrisette never really speaks in DOGMA.  But, for further comic relief, IF God WERE a woman,as HELEN REDDY once asked, I like to think the best voice would be that of BEA ARTHUR!
