Which actor/actress is instantly recognizable to you whenever you hear their voice?
By - Doom_Toon
One ping, One Ping only Vasilly.
That ones almost unfair lol
TBF, thats his voice acting and not his real voice.
Wait really? I’ve only ever heard him talk like Iago from Aladdin.
Once upon a time, he used to be on Saturday Night Live. He talked normally then. First I remember his character voice was an episode of Night Court. He was a prosecutor
here's a [bad skit](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=idtrUge0wAQ) from SNL
That’s his stage/on-air voice that everybody knows. I was talking with Bill Schulz (the journalist who used to be on Red Eye) and he said IRL Gilbert sounds like a tired Jewish deli owner.
So he sounds like he looks then
Samuel l Jackson.
Edit: Alan Rickman. How could I forget Alan Rickman?
Omg yes Alan Rickman how could I forget about him
I feel kinda bad for not thinking of him immediately. He's still one of my faves.
RIP Alan Rickman. Amazing actor with an amazing voice.
Can’t believe nobody’s said Christopher Walken yet
Wow I can’t believe I forgot about him either. Danny Trejo too
Or, as Christopher Walken would say-
Wow! I can't believe....I forgot..about him....either.
You have to put...those pauses at...less common points of...emphasis.
Morgan Freeman and Danny DeVito
"Is this your homework, Larry?!"
You’re killing your father Larry
THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS, LARRY
THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU FUCK A STRANGER IN THE ASS
Easily one of my favorite actors
Morgan Freeman and James Earl Jones.
Sometimes when I’m constipated I put on March Of The Penguins and put the speakers against my stomach. Works every time.
You stole my Jesus fish didn't you?
High five. GO DEVILS!!
You mean the voice actor for Kronk? The voice actor specifically chosen to play Kronk? Kronk’s voice actor?
YES, that voice actor!!
It's all coming together.
I *never* liked your spinach puffs!
That's it, *cocks trident* she's going down.
Not going to lie, whenever i hear his voice in something i don't think or say 'oh hey that's Warburton'. I say 'omg is that Kronk?'
I always hear Puddy
Good citizen, I hear the bellowing vocal charms of none other than this city's greatest hero, The Tick.
This was actually my first thought. I love pat Warburton.
Okay, I was going to say Patrick Warburton as well! A long time ago I worked as a cashier at a Whole Foods in Southern California when he came through my line. I didn’t recognize him until he started talking to me.
Brock. Fucking. Samson.
They hit me with a truck *eye twitch*
Go ahead………__Take it from me.__
Brock: “I know I have beat on most of you in the past..”
Henchman: “I forgive you, Brock Samson.”
Another Henchman: “I was asking for it.”
Another, Another Henchman: “We love you Brock Samson!”
Men write him love letters
“One time I jerked off 12 times in a day just to see if I could…” - Brock Samson
LEARN TO LIVE WITH IT BONNIE! THERE ARE TRACKS! PEOPLE MAKE TRACKS!
Kinda surprised it took this long for him
i love how everyone knows exactly who we're talking about just based on a 'wow'. that wow is legendary tho, so i'm definitely not disappointed
My cousins and I (all adults) were together for a family reunion and we drove everyone crazy with “Waawww!” to anything anyone else said.
Good times :) We laughed like hyenas. Immature hyenas lol
Raise your hand if you still haven't mentally recovered from learning he played Lightning McQueen
I haven’t seen this movie in probably a decade but all of a sudden I can hear lightning mcqueen with his voice. That’s fucking weird
Definitely Chris Rock
Both Chris' do. Chris Rock and Chris Tucker have such recognizable voices.
#Do you understand the words that are coming out of my mouth?
Watching her raunchy stand up after watching Gravity Falls is the most surreal and disturbing thing, I close my eyes and picture Mabel Pines talking about her taint.
Robin Williams’ standup is like that, too. You can almost picture the genie up there in a pith helmet and jodhpurs, coked out of his mind, talking about getting fucked by CoCo the talking gorilla.
Same with Bob Saget. So innocent and clean on Full House and AFV that's its whiplash to hear him be dirty.
...is a horse... Kristen Schaal is a horse. Look at her dance, now look at her go, now Kristen Schaal is a horse...
You mean Hazel Wassername?
You mean Number Two!
You mean Mabel from Gravity Falls?
You mean Mel from Flight of the Conchords?
You mean Carol from The Last Man on Earth?
You mean Louise from Bob’s Burgers?
You mean Sarah Lynn from Bojack Horseman?
Carol in last man on earth, Louise in Bob’s burgers
J K Simmons. Oh and Arnold Schwarzenegger.
I watched the entire series of Legend of Korra without realizing he was Tenzin. His other roles he speaks in that particular fashion that's immediately recognizable, Like Omni-man or Cave Johnson. With Tenzin he has that same tonality but totally different speech mannerisms and i had no clue. That's top class acting.
Oh, whoa. Just googled it and you’re right he was the voice of Tenzin. Never knew that!
I guess that disproves your original comment lol
Damn how did I forget J Jonah “Omni-Man” Jameson himself?
He wasn't telling him to think about pictures of spiderman?
H Jon Benjamin
Also Chris Parnell but apparently nobody knows who he is.
Except fans of Chris Parnell; that dude is the best.
"Boy, it's crazy to think we used to settle questions of paternity by dunking a woman in water until she admitted she made it all up...different time, the 60's"
I’m rewatching 30 Rock right now and fucking died laughing at that line. Dr. Spaceman is the best.
"Tracy, I don't know how to say this. Dee-ah-be-tus?"
“Is it 4-1-1 or 9-1-1…”
“Uh New York?”
“Uhh…diabetes repair, I guess.”
"...we have no way of knowing where the heart is."
Who tf doesn't know Chris Parnell?
The Progressive Box
I'm a fan lol
I always hear coach McGuirk.
There's an episode of family guy where his character does impressions of Archer from Archer and Bob from Bob's Burgers for an open Mike night. So funny.
I love the episode of archer where he has amnesia and thinks he owns a burger shop.
Better break out the purple stuff
A Cobb salad for the lady!
*WHAT ARE YOU DOING HERE*
I'd never heard him talk as himself before and I'd watched all of Bojack. I was floored when I realized that he was essentially just talking normally for his part
You have to watch arrested development ASAP.
His voice is a perfect cast for a horse man
"I have made a huge mistake"
*"you want me to be responsible for my own happiness? I can't even be responsible enough to make breakfast..."*
Gonna say Matthew McConaughey since no one else has
Alright alright alright
Be a lot cooler if you did
Michael J. Fox
Keith David. There was just a video clip on reddit the other day about all the voices he does.
Now here's a man who knows how to identify voice actors!
I can’t believe I had to scroll this far down to find the first mention of Keith David.
“Gimme one of them good sarsaparillas.”
Yeah, that's a good one.
He has such a sexy voice
Sounds like the love child of tobacco leaves and bourbon swaddled in velvet.
I can’t believe no one said David Attenborough.
The Allstate guy, Dennis Haysbert
I knew him as Cerrano in *Major League* way back when.
Bobcat Goldthwait and Pauly Shore
Clancy brown. If there is a gruff sounding voice in a cartoon it's a 90% chance it's going to be him.
Tim mother f-ing Curry
I see you shiver with antici....
"I'm going to the ONE place that hasn't been corrupted by capitalism yet! *Barely holding back laughter* SPAACE!"
Apparently working on the scenes for those games was as fun as it looked
Arnold Schwarzenegger, a tie with Sylvester Stallone.
I loved Celia in Monsters Inc.! "Googaly bear!'
Tom Waits. According to himself, with his voice he would either try his luck on the music industry or sell air conditioners
David Tennant apparently!
Grew up watching him without a Scottish accent on Dr Who but I heard him narrating a documentary and instantly recognised his voice. Took my partner a bit longer
Oh you should see Broadchurch then. Two full seasons of him with his Scottish accent
He's also the newest Scrooge McDuck too!
Jimmy Stewart love his voice ❤️
Sam Elliott for sure. Also Nick Offerman
I was waiting to see Nick Offerman!
I think Kristen Schaal has a really distinct voice and way of speaking that's really easy to pick up on when she does voice work.
For me it’s definitely Kristen Bell after watching Gossip Girl as a teenager. I still hear “You know you love me” in her voice in my head.
I was a Veronica Mars fan when it was on. I am playing Assassin's Creed. I recognized her voice almost instantly, then saw the character's face. Apparently I can recognize her fairly quickly too.
V Mars, one of the best shows EVER. She was amazing in that show.
Eddie Murphy, Chris Pratt, Ryan Reynolds, and how could I forget the legend that is Robin Williams
Ah yes Robin Williams. I could definitely pick him or Eddie Murphy out but idk about Chris Pratt or Ryan Reynolds
Casey Kasem rip.
“Wait a minute. They’re just using the same actor over and over. What kind of cut-rate production is this?!”
Some great ones on here! I have to add Tom Hanks & Sarah Silverman.
Michael Clarke Duncan and Robin Williams two voices I will always know the second I hear them. They were both gone too soon. ♥️
Shohreh Aghdashloo. Does a ton of voice acting for video games, and has one of the most distinctive voices I've heard.
She plays Avasarala in The Expanse. Incredible character.
I 100% believe Avasarala was written with Shohreh in mind.
I think her swearing is more satisfying than a *motherfucker* from Jackson
That gravelly voice is distinctive as hell, and SO enchanting. She owns the room any time she or a character she plays opens their mouth. Amazing voice.
William Shatner. I think . . . he can . . . safely be called . . . the king . . . of pause.
* _Christopher Walken has entered the chat._
(If y'all are counting voice actors/actresses as well)
Vincent Price, Christopher Lee
