Chris Farley. Yep.

Chris Farley was the actor who was picked to voice the character of Shrek, before he overdosed on drugs. He had recorded almost all of the character's dialogue just before he died.

After Chris died, the character was completely re-written to better fit Mike Meyers, who was then cast to voice the Shrek we now all know and love, with that thick Scottish accent.

I wonder if Shrek would have been as popular if he originally sounded like this...
