I really don't get this answer at all. Mostly because of the reason. I only know of one role in which he does an "awesome bad guy." And he will forever be associated with that voice. I'm not saying he didn't do an amazing job. He totally did. But hearing him do another bad guy would just totally break the 4th wall for me. I'd venture to say that's how it'd affect many people.
However if he had already played or voiced more than just one bad guy then it wouldn't bother me as much. But his bad guy role is almost too iconic.
Thinking more about this I realized that maybe the people who are quite a bit younger or quite a bit older than me could feel very different about this. My viewpoint is coming from someone who grew up watching the original trilogy as much as possible. I'd play sick and skip school just so I could watch the movies all day.
Everyone's entitled to their own opinion obviously. I'm just bothered by the reasoning behind this particular suggestion.

Christopher Lee would be nice. If they did a live-action film though, I would *love* to see Chris Hemsworth as the Dovahkiin. So awesome and sexy... Gawd. Plus, he has a nice voice for that kind of stuff as well.
