Default Best Celebrities that have done voice overs

This has been a hot button issue in this community for years, especially since Chris Rock's bit during the Oscars. While there are some celebrities who have no business in voice overs (Katy Perry, Cameron Diaz) some do a good job.

Who do you guys and gals think has done a great job? These are my top ten favorites.

Robin Williams (I still think that this was his best performance ever).
Eddie Murphy
Johnny Depp (it's funny how he could just do his normal voice, but every time he's done an animated film he really changes his voice and goes for it, he does this in almost all his live action films so it makes sense).
Mike Myers
James Woods
Jeremy Irons (his performance as Scar is underrated to this day).
Tom Hanks
Gilbert Gottfried
Dave Spade (probably his best performance in a film)
John Goodman (he's just great)

I really love Billy Crystal's voice-work. So enjoyable to listen to and he's funny as heck.

Definitely agree on Mike Myers, Eddie Murphy, Robin Williams, John Goodman, and Billy Crystal.

Also pretty good are Ellen Degeneres and Jim Carrey.

I consider those three straight up voice actors who just happen to be celebrities. Kinda like Hank Azaria, Tim Curry, Pamela Adlon, Brad Garrett, Patrick Warburton, Mae Whitman, and Lacey Chabert.

I hope Kevin Hart gets more VO opportunities. He did a fine job as Snowball in The Secret Life of Pets.
