Project Main Details

Thomas Jefferson 
I need a quote by Jefferson read by someone impersonating him, to match the quote on screen graphic.

Three Important Things:
1. Thomas Jefferson was much younger than people realize. He was only 31 when he wrote the Declaration. Most people think of him like an older George Washington type. But he was a very young, early 30 something voice.

2. Jefferson was apparently soft spoken. I think he was probably too smart for his own good, and was very quietly careful about what he said. I imagine him to be similar to an introverted rock star today... someone who is too special to really know how to deal with it. And every time he talks, it sounds like he doesn't want to.
Without doubt, Thomas Jefferson was a genius.

3. There were remnants of British accent in his voice. Subtle, but there. He spent ALOT of time in Europe, as a delegate, even after the war.

HINT: The "John Adams" series - which has several clips on YouTube... Stephen Dillane's Jefferson is wonderful.

I'll probably give this job to the best Dillane inpersonation, to be perfectly honest. ;)
