Carl Sagan

I started streaming Carl Sagan's Cosmos from Netflix today, and his voice immediately sounded incredibly familiar, even though I've only heard it once before, when my middle school science teacher showed my class a Cosmos episode. After finishing the first episode (which features a modern introduction by Ann Druyan that is comedic GOLD), I did some googling, and discovered the shocking truth.

That is awesome. I haven't laughed that hard at a YouTube video in months.

I assume the similarity of Agent Smith's voice to Sagan cannot be a coincidence (that is, they intentionally modelled his speech patterns and inflections).

I agree--I would be dumbfounded if it turned out the Agent Smith accent wasn't based off of Carl Sagan's voice; they are entirely too similar for it to be a coincidence.
