It’s commonly perceived that truly successful Hollywood actors have to sacrifice public anonymity in the pursuit of the best movie and television roles. After all, when is the last time you’ve seen Will Smith or Tom Cruise pushing a cart down a shopping aisle? However, there is a certain breed of thespian that can gain notoriety without ever once revealing themselves to the public—voice actors. Here are 15 of the actors behind some of the most iconic animated characters in history. You may not know all of their faces, but you certainly could recognize their voices.
Comedian Tom Kenny’s voice is unmistakable for anyone who has ever turned on Cartoon Network or Nickelodeon. He currently juggles the starring role, the French narrator, and his live-action performance of Patchy The Pirate on Spongebob Squarepants. He also voices The Ice King on Cartoon Network’s hugely popular Adventure Time with Finn and Jake. Comedy fans may also know him from his performances on the HBO sketch show Mr. Show.
