Who Is The Narrator For The Arby's Commercials?

Arby's deep-voiced narrator has become as iconic as the company's neon cowboy hat. His gravely, authoritative delivery sounds familiar for a reason. As is the trend with many major companies, Arby's has enlisted the help of quite a few well known actors to help sell their products.

One of their latest spots features H. Jon Benjamin, who voices the ultimate authority on sandwiches, Bob Belcher on "Bob's Burgers." The actor has appeared in several of the restaurant's commercials as of 2020. However, since 2014, the same disembodied voice has spoken over those perfect sandwich arrangements, and he's a big name too.

Although burgers may not immediately come to mind, there's a good chance you were stuffing some popcorn in your mouth while watching him on the big screen. He's known for his tough guy characters, which comes as little surprise, given his signature baritone vocals. This narrator consistently reminds us that Arby's has "the meats."

Ving Rhames appeared in "Pulp Fiction" and over 100 other projects

Ving Rhames made his name as a dramatic actor before landing any corporate deals. The Julliard alumni got his start in film as Young Gabriel in the 1984 cinematic adaption of the James Baldwin semi-autobiographical novel "Go Tell It on the Mountain." Later, horror fans took note of the actor in Wes Craven's "The People Under The Stairs," and any Quentin Tarantino fan will recognize him as mob boss Marsellus Wallace from "Pulp Fiction."

The actor is as much a mainstay in action features as dramatic pieces. He's appeared in "ER," "Con Air," "Jacob's Ladder," and "Dawn of the Dead" to name a few of his standout pieces. He also had the title role in the 2005 remake of "Kojak," as an NYPD detective with an affinity for jazz and lollipops.

Rhames has also appeared in all of the "Mission: Impossible" films, the only actor besides Tom Cruise to do so. When asked which installment was his favorite, he told Spotlight Report it was 2018's "Mission: Impossible – Fallout."

"[Writer] Chris McQuarrie wrote a scene where I really get to show how Luther feels about Ethan [Cruise]. It takes into account all the time the two of them have been together. And it's pretty emotional and powerful," he told the outlet.

Ving Rhames is set to reprise his role as Luther Stickell in the upcoming "Mission: Impossible 7," currently set to release in 2022.
