For customizing the voices, I figure that a pitch, speed and tone slider could be added, to modify the standard male/female voices, which would save having to record a more than the two voices.

As far as monetization, I'd buy a voice-over pack from the C-Store in a heart-beat.
You could even go all the distance and take snippets from the TV shows and movies and merge them "smoothly" together.

The other option might be to register Cryptic as a non-American company. Would that protect them from the Hollywood union? All this licensing and union stuff is just a vile dictatorship!
