List Rules Can be any actor who is seen and not heard for a living. Please, no screen actors brought onto a film for their name alone.

These are voices you could never put a face to, but you know them as well as you know any actor. Deep voices, squeaky voices, melodious voices... they bring animation and voice-overs to life. Vote for your favorites, re-rank the list and be sure to add anyone you think has been left off.
