I can’t imagine a better acting gig than voiceover work. You get to roll out of bed and head straight to the studio where you don’t have to spend hours in wardrobe or makeup. You speak some lines into a microphone, collect your paycheck and call it a day. It’s no wonder so many famous actors have loaned their voices to animated shows, movies, and video games. Here are 15 stars that you may have recognized as the voices of some of your favorite animated characters over the years.
Is it possible to fall in love with a cartoon character? Because we definitely had a childhood crush on the loveable conman Dmitri in Fox’s Anastasia, largely due to the fact that his voice was provided by the adorable John Cusack. Between Cusack’s dulcet tones and his character’s cute floppy brown hair and strongly drawn jaw, we were smitten. Cusack also loaned his voice to a somewhat less hot titular hunchback in the 2008 animated film Igor.
