It's one of the more memorable moments from Disney's The Lion King. When Scar reveals -- in the song "Be Prepared" -- his plan to murder Mufasa.
It's hard to single out which element really puts this musical number
over the top. Tim Rice's witty lyrics. Those goose-stepping hyenas or
Jeremy Irons' sinuous vocal performance.
But here's the thing: The Academy Award-winner didn't actually sing "Be Prepared" ... Well, not all of it, anyway.

Went to school with Jim Cummings daughter and she always kept saying her dad was the voice of Scar. I knew it was Jeremy Irons until one day I realized we were both right--Jeremy irons sings/speaks most of the song up until the very last lyric and chorus when Jim Cummings takes over with "So prepare for the coup of the century..."
From there on out Jim Cummings finishes the song.
I though it was pretty much an open secret at this point that Irons couldn't finish "Be Prepared" and Jim Cummings filled in for the last third or so.
