I'm guessing when you say "distort" - you don't actually want to over modulate, just give some sort of stylized filter to make an old timey feel - or radio sound.
If you mess with the High Pass Filter, you can get some good results. Set the frequency to around 1400, and the Q to about 3.
See if that's close to what you are looking for.
Okay got it. Keep the identity a secret.
In looking through my FCP audio filters, nothing there jumps out.
Here is one suggestion - you can try running the audio in Garage Band and use the Vocal Transformer filter.
That filter may also be in Soundtrack (I don't use it) - in which case, you could promote that section of audio to Soundtrack - put the transformer filter on it - and it will be in your FCP timeline.
If you do it in Garage Band, it will require an export and then reimport (and eye match it - OR don't give it handles and overwrite it)
You can get good results shifting the harmonics of the voice
with a spectral shifter. It maintains the intelligibility
but messes with the identity. One really nice freeware
for this sort of thing is Soundhack:
In the Hack menu, try Convolution, Mutation, or Phase Vocoder.
