Do you feel that you are familiar with the name Leonard Nimoy and not sure from where? You know that you have seen his face before but don’t know where? Leonard Nimoy was Star Trek’s, Dr. Spock.

Meryl Streep – Fantastic Mr. Fox
You would have thought that Meryl Streep would accept only sophisticated and prestigious roles, however, Streep is more open-minded than we might have thought. She is a big name behind animated characters too.
Meryl Streep voiced the character of Mrs. Fox in the animated hit Mr. Fox. The movie was based on a 1970 novel of the same name. It was nominated for Best Animated Feature and won the award for Outstanding Achievement for Writing in a Feature Production.
BD Wong – Mulan
Bradley Darryl Wong is one of a kind and is the only actor in Broadway history to have won five different awards for the same role. He received those awards for his role of Song Liling in M. Butterfly.
He voiced Captain Li Shang in the movie Mulan, and this has been his only voicing role so far. He might prefer being in front of a camera instead of behind an animated character, however, he did such a remarkable job, we can only ask for more.
Nicolas Cage – The Croods
There is more to Nicolas Cage than Face/Off, Red Rock West, and Spiderman. Cage is the voice behind the character Grug in the comic animated movie, The Croods.
When first released, The Croods made such a racket and immediately became a movie to fall in love with. It's one of the few movies adults will appreciate as much as kids so no wonder it has expanded into video games and sequels.
Minnie Driver – Tarzan
The 1999 version of Tarzan features the voice of Minnie Driver as Jane. This is not her only animated voice-acting role, as Driver voiced Lady Eboshi in the movie Princess Mononoke.
Minnie Driver began her career in 1995 when she played in Circle of Friends. From there, the only way was up. She starred in Good Will Hunting, The Fantom of the Opera, and is known for being Matt Damond's better half for a few years.
