Celebrities who you'd like to see do more voiceover work
 
Sort of inspired by the thread about voice actors who don't get enough roles, which celebrities do you think should get the chance to provide voices for animated characters more often?

I personally would like to hear more voiceover work from Mike Myers and Jim Carrey. I liked them as Shrek and Horton.

For a while I wanted Michael C. Hall to get it in on the game and luckily last year he's finally started voicing like in Justice League: Gods and Monsters and Star Vs. The Forces of Evil.

I hope he continues to voice act.

Here's who I'd like to see more in voice acting.

Bill Hader
Gary Oldman
James Spader
Patrick Stewart
Charlie Day
Will Arnett
Will Ferrell
Liam Neeson
James Earl Jones
Alfred Molina
Willem Dafoe
Idris Elba
Elizabeth Banks
Kristen Wiig
Sigourney Weaver
Arnold Schwarzenegger
Terry Crews
Vin Diesel
Chris Hemsworth
Christopher Lloyd
Danny Devito
John Goodman
Kevin Pollak
Constance Zimmer
Eddie Murphy
Jim Parsons
John Michael Higgins
Idina Menzel
Alec Baldwin (my mom despises him but he really is a good VA)
Penn Jillette
Frances McDormand
Seth Rogen
John C. Reilly
Nathan Fillion
Tom Cavanagh
Tom Hiddleston

There are more people out there but these folks, I'd love to hear more of the most.

Probably the biggest-name "celebrity" Hollywood actor I can think of who has surprisingly never, ever done voice acting work, is Tom Cruise.

1000000% for Titus Welliver! ^ He can Pacino impressions from nearly every decade of Pacino, and he's an underrated actor in general. Something tells me he could rock as a voice-actor.

Yeah, buddy. Or Clint Eastwood. Even Tom has at least done some documentary narration work.

Plus his face is a warrant. :rotfl:

Yeah I'm amazed no one has tried to get Tom or Clint to voice in a movie. Clint especially has a great gritty raspy voice.

Also another celebrity I want to see do more voice work. Werner Herzog, after hearing him in Rick & Morty and The Wind Rises he has a very unique and rare quality to his voice.

Wouldn't suprise me if Clint felt like that voice acting and/or cartoons are beneath him or the like. Which is a shame, since he is great actor and his voice would be perfect for a gritty villain or worn-out mentor.

Anywho, while he is no stranger to the art form, I would love to see Peter Dinklage do more voice acting. He has unbelievable charisma and very cool voice. Since Disney has gotten back on track in terms of their animated movies, I would love to see him play a villain or antihero in Disney movie. One of my personal dream fancast is actually hear him voice Captain Nemo. He would be perfect for the role.

I kind of wanted Robin Williams to do more as the Genie, before he had passed..

Other than him? Maybe Nic Cage or Daniel Radcliffe. No doubt that Liam Neeson would be great in more voice roles.

And Ringo Starr. Dear god, he needs a lot more roles.

Frank Langella.

I'd like to nominate Ray Romano, too. He should do more than just Manny.

I'd like to hear Krysten Ritter take a crack.
