For every 20 working voice over actors, there’s one celebrity voice in the mix. Sometimes it’s obvious, such as Martin Sheen or Keifer Sutherland. But more and more, it’s getting harder to pick them out. How many people new that Billy Crudup is the “priceless” voice over for the MasterCard commercials? It’s true.
One agency that specializes in celebrity voice overs is Special Artists Agency. Their voice over department is broken into two levels – Scale and Celebrity. Their scale department has a small, select list of voice over pros, like D.C. Douglas, Stephanie Sheh and Dave Mallow. Their Celebrity department is a who’s who in Hollywood. Below is a list of just their male celebrity voice over actors:
Clifton Collins Jr
Philip Seymour Hoffman
James Van Der Beek
