Death of José Luccioni, the French voice of Al Pacino

He also voiced Sully in the Uncharted games or Marcus Fenix ​​in Gears of War.

Jose Luccioni died at the age of 72. He was a familiar voice on the small and big screen, as well as for gamers. A graduate of the Center d’Art Dramatique in Paris, he followed in his parents’ footsteps: his father was the baritone Jacques Lucionni and his mother the actress Micheline Luccioni (known in the cinema for Gervaise, by René Clement). He started like her in the theater, before breaking into the field of dubbing. Since 1995, he had thus become the French voice ofAl Pacinodoubling it in particular in Heatby Michael Mann, insomniaby Christopher Nolan and The Irishman, by Martin Scorsese. He also dubbed Beau Bridges in a dozen films and series (including Stargate and Homelandbroadcast for several years), John Travolta in Carrie at the Devil’s Ballby Brian de Palma, Bill Paxton in Aliensby James Cameron, Ron Perlman in Alien, the resurrectionby Jean-Pierre Jeunet, or Michael Rooker in The Suicide Squadby James Gunn.

Directing dubbing himself, he had for example orchestrated those of many successful series (Vikings, American Gods, The Leftovers, Sense8, Rome…), but also very diverse films for the cinema: both blockbusters like Prince of Pesia and Black Pantherthan Oscar-winning works such asAmerican Beauty Where Million Dollar Babyand took care of the repetition of the Godfather and its continuation, in 2008. For the blow, it did not double Al Pacino in these versions (it is Sylvain Joubert who was in charge of it), but Marlon Brando. A path that her daughter Olivia also followed by becoming an actress and artistic director.

His voice has also resonated in several successful video games: it was he who doubled Victor Sullivan, alias Sully, in UnchartedMarcus Fenix ​​in Gears of WarT-Bone in Watchdogs or Torbjörn in Overwatch. He talks about it in the video below: two years ago, Donald Reignoux, the voice of Titeuf and Spider-Man (in the latest games, but also in the cinema when he is played by Andrew Garfield), had it invited to participate in his show StreamVF. The opportunity to tell lots of anecdotes about his career, while playing Gears of War.
