Everyone needs a little change in their lives from time to time -- even science legend Stephen Hawking. After decades of communicating via a computerised speech synthesiser, Hawking recently auditioned A-list actors and leaders around the world to temporarily update his voice.

From Liam Neeson to Lin-Manuel Miranda to Bill Gates, some of the world’s most successful people competed for the “once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.”

As the video below shows, Hawking was ruthless in his reviews of the audition tapes. In Gates’s video, the Microsoft co-founder exclaims, “I mean, who wouldn’t want to sound like me!” Hawking’s response? “Not a chance!”

Even Eddie Redmayne, who played Hawking in the biopic The Theory of Everything, auditioned for the role. Redmayne jokingly asked, “So … what is it? Like a sequel?”

Hawking wasn’t sold on Taken star Neeson, either, even though Neeson explained to the professor, “Surely it’s got to be me. Listen to my voice. It’s deep, it’s sexy, it’s got a tinge of … physics.”

Stephen Hawking went on to reject various other members of the Hollywood elite, with criticisms such as, “it’s not looking good” and “I’d sound like an idiot if that was my voice,” before selecting one of the world’s most recognisable British voices -- Michael Caine.

Stephen Hawking is currently Director of Research at the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics (DAMTP) and Founder of the Centre for Theoretical Cosmology (CTC) at the University of Cambridge, UK.

Cambridge Regional War Room: Region 4 / RSG 4

Brooklands Avenue - Cambridge

Following redevelopment, this site is now located at the corner of Gilpin Road and Kingfisher Way.

The Cambridge war room was rebuilt in 1963 and the extension was to form one of 3 purpose built central command Armed Forces HQ's (AFHQ). The plan was later dropped (1965). Cambridge was undergoing a refit in late 1990/1 as it was planned to use it as a sub control for Bawburgh which was the main RGHQ. It had previously been used as a COMCEN during the Gulf War.
