Jürgen Thormann (b. 1928) is a German voice actor who is the primary voice of Michael Caine and Peter O'Toole. As a result, he dubbed Caine as Ebenezer Scrooge in Die Muppets Weihnachtsgeschichte (The Muppet Christmas Carol) and O'Toole in Gulliver's Travels. He also dubbed guest characters on Die Dinos (Dinosaurs).
Thormann is known for his firm, clear delivery and has dubbed distinguished actors, besides Caine and O'Toole, such as John Hurt, Jean Rochefort, Ian McKellen in the X-Men movies, Max Von Sydow, and Edward Fox. He dubbed Vincent Price in Twice Told Tales and some redubs, Paul Scofield in The Crucible, James Fox in The Remains of the Day, John Standing in The Elephant Man, James Earl Jones in The Last Remake of Beau Geste, Peter Sellers in Being There, and Paul Benedict in The Freshman.
On-camera, Thormann appeared on Ein Heim für Tiere and, like most German actors, the crime series Tatort. In audio books, he appeared in classic horror adaptations as the blind man in Frankenstein and Peter Hawkins in Dracula, was a regular supporting player in The Three Investigators series, Ming the Merciless in Flash Gordon, Capt'n Baddog in LEGO Pirate cassettes, various characters in the Professor Van Dusen adaptations, and narrator of the Trixie Belden series.
