The Price of Egypt tells the story of biblical Moses and the exodus of the Israelites from the hands of the Pharaoh. Playing a role, or better, voicing a role in this movie has its own honors and glam. Moses is not just another character, and the story is not just another fairytale.
Val Kilmer (known to us all as the bad guy in Top Gun), was privileged to speak for the prophet, and what a good job he did. The movie at the time was the most successful non-Disney movie ever made, and it led to the creation of more bible-based movies.
Tina Fey – Ponyo
Ponyo is a Japanese version of The Little Mermaid. It was a huge success and the English version was soon to follow. Ponyo received many awards for its visual design and the fact that it appealed to both adults and children. Not very easy these days to create a movie aligned with all ages.
Tina Fey was the voice behind Lisa, the main character's (Sosuke) mother. She is the balancer amongst the characters and brings a calm and open-minded animated figure, to life.
Arsenio Hall – The Real Ghostbusters
Who're we gonna call? The real Ghostbusters. Based on the 1980s hit, Ghostbusters, the animated version was released in 1986 and featured the voice of Arsenio Hall, soon to become one of the most famous late-night people.
The character of Winston Zeddemore had to say goodbye to Hall's voice, as The Arsenio Hall Show became so popular, there was not enough room for both.
Eddie Murphy – Shrek
When Shrek aired in 2001, it gave whoever watched it a little something. There was a bit of magic in there for all. A beautiful story with excellent computer animation. The story of the gigantic green creature captured our hearts and if you watched and listened to the movie very carefully, the next lines won't surprise you.
Besides Shrek and Princess Fiona, a few other characters decorated the screen, and Donkey is one to remember. The Donkey, named simply Donkey, was voiced by the almighty, one of the best comedians alive, Mr. Eddie Murphy. No additional words are needed.
Fergie – Peanuts
Born with the name Stacy Ann Ferguson, Fergie was discovered as part of the Black Eyed Peas. Since then she has nourished a solo career, she writes songs for other artists, and believe it or not, Peas are not the only food she likes.
Peanuts told the tail of Charlie Brown and Snoopy, his handful dog, dealing with daily stuff. Sally Brown was Charlie's sister and the voice behind Sally, was no other than Fergie.
