You know, I almost forgot he voiced Robin. He's certainly up there with me.

Foe me, I have to say my favorite celebrity VA performances are :

Robin Williams - Genie (a cliche choice, but he is awesome)
James Earle Jones - Mufasa
Mike Myers - Shrek (Interesting piece of trivia, he recorded all his lines in his normal speaking voice at first, but later got the idea to use a Scottish accent. So he then recorded all the lines AGAIN in the accent. It cost a lot of time and money, but the result was superb.)
Eddie Murphy - Donkey
Mako - Anything he did
Dustin Hoffman - Shifu (did a great job, my father really likes the role too because he most identifies Dustin with Rain Man, and really enjoys this guys acting ability.)
Jesse McCartney - Robin

Nothing specific that I can think of off the top of my head, but Alec Baldwin is a really good voice actor.

Regina King, I love how she does the voice for the character with the Afro in the Boondocks.

Eric Roberts.
He might not have done much, but his Mongul-Performance is on the same level with Mark Hamill as Joker and Kevin Conroy as Batman for me.

He was also Dark Danny in Danny Phantom. That was an awesome performance.

Cool Re: Favourite Celebrity Voice Actors

There are quite a few other prolific on-camera actors who have had voice-over roles that I really enjoyed:
  • Xander Berkeley: Mento, Warp, and General Immortus were three of the best villains from the original Teen Titans series.
  • Gwendoline Yeo: She usually gets typecast, usually voicing sexy confident woman-type characters (you know, like Vanessa Marshall and Stephanie Young), but I still like most of her work. Domino (Wolverine & the X-Men), Paine (FF/KH), Four Eyes (RE: Operation Raccoon City), Rika (Uncharted), and Trinidad (SF:LS) would be my top choices from her resume.
  • Lacey Chabert: Eliza Thornberry of course! But of course, she's had a handful of other great roles in animation. From all the cartoons I've watched, anytime Lacey is involved, it's always more enjoyable!
  • Richard Grieco: A pretty badass Ghost Rider.
  • Dameon Clarke: Both Cell and Handsome Jack are ultimate perfection (no pun intended).

Would James Earl Jones count when he voiced Darth Vader? He technically was the voice actor there, so iconic is that voice!

Oh, and also, Michael J. Fox as Chance in Homeward Bound...made me believe dogs could(can) talk!
