So, to get the topic back onto voice, do we go down the Manwë route and use an established Valar actor, say Idris Elba, as the voice of Huan?
The Vala Huan is associated with is Oromë, not Mandos. So, if we were going to do the Manwë-as-the-voice-of-Thorondor route again, the actor we should be considering for Huan's voice is Alexander Skarsgård, who we cast as Oromë.


He at least has a deep voice, when he wants to...

I've had this idea that I wasn't sure anyone would get behind. But, since Oromë is the Vala "over" Huan, and Oromë is voiced by Alexander Skarsgård, why don't we have Huan voiced by Stellan, Alexander's father? This seems counterintuitive, at first thought. The instinct would be to have the father play the elder character, and the son the "underling" (though I know that's not really the relationship.) But I think that Alexander would give Oromë an eternally youthful feel, while having the older actor play Huan would give the impression of being of a slightly lower order than Oromë. Plus, Stellan is an amazing actor with an amazing voice.
