Transcript for James Earl Jones Wins Voice Icon Award
No doubt, this voice is familiar. I am your father. You are our idol, James earl Jones. The man behind darth vader and mufasa from "The lion king." He's just received the first ever voice icon award. When asked about all of his iconic roles, he says he was incredibly moved watching his mufasa die in "The lion king." When asked if he would be back in the new move I have via flashback, he LAFD it off. You can hear that wonderful laugh, can't you, saying no, no, no darth is dead. But there was something to it. So, you never know. You also might be surprised to hear that Jones was not always a vocal powerhouse as we know him. He says as a child, he didn't speak much at all. Too much embarrassed by a stutter that he would work for years to overcome. I didn't know that. He did overcome it, right. Hard to think of anyone else getting that first award. No, absolutely not. Congratulations, Mr. Jones. We're so excited to be part of "The hunger games" family. This week, we have Jennifer Lawrence and the other stars coming to us here. The action does not stop on the big screen. "The hunger games" is set to become a theatrical experience. They're planning to mount the production in 2016. Details still to come. I would say the odds of success are ever in its favor. We're going to hear that a time or two. I know. I'm sorry. I love, love, love the books. My daughter a read the books. I took my expert Saturday to see the movie. And? Big thumbs up. We're having girls' day out after "Gma." We'll let you know how sit.
