Chris FarleyThe lights went out too soon for funny and talented comedian Chris Farley, and we can only imagine what might've come out of his career had he not tragically died of a drug overdose in 1997. But now, we can hear what Farley would've sounded like in the animated hit "Shrek."

Farley was originally supposed to voice the green monster, and he recorded about 90 percent of the dialogue before his untimely demise in 1997. A Reddit user posted this recording of Farley and Eddie Murphy, which plays over some sketches of Shrek and Donkey's antics.

"Originally the Shrek character was a little bit more like Chris, like a humble, bumbling innocent guy," Kevin Farley told Yahoo Movies. He recently produced a documentary about his brother's life, titled "I Am Chris Farley."

After Farley's death, the movie replaced him with his "Saturday Night Live" co-star Mike Myers, who gave the character his now distinctive Scottish brogue. Now, for the first time, we can hear what Farley would've done with the role.

"I Am Chris Farley" is now in theaters and airs on Spike on Aug. 10.
