Bill Hader (South Park)

Emmy award-winning Barry actor Bill Hader has voiced an array of South Park characters, but our favorite is his turn as Alec Baldwin on the hit Comedy Central show. Fun fact: Hader wrote the infamous Kanye West fishsticks joke, so he’s basically in South Park Hall of Fame.

Halsey (American Dad!)

Singer-songwriter Halsey proves to be a triple threat with her work on the big screen for A Star is Born, and television turns on Scooby Doo and Guess Who? and American Dad! Her role as candy-obsessed biker Cindy adds a tongue-in-cheek humor for the chameleon songstress.

Before Iron Man saved the world in Avengers: Endgame, Robert Downey Jr. voiced Patrick Pewterschmidt, the long-lost older brother of Lois Griffin on Family Guy. Downey Jr. only voiced Patrick once for the “Fat Guy Strangler” episode; the character was later portrayed by Oliver Vaquer for “Killer Queen” but we’ll always have “Strangler” to remember iconic Downey Jr.’s sultry voice.

The Mad Men and Good Girls star got animated for Rick and Morty back in 2015, but that hasn’t stopped Hendricks from continuing her voice work: the actress also voiced a snake CVS cashier in Robot Chicken, and most recently, doll Gabby Gabby in Toy Story 4 on the big screen.

Hamill recently also lent his iconic voice to Chucky in Child’s Play and is soon to star on Netflix’s The Last Kids on Earth, but you probably didn’t spot Hamill’s cameo as an unnamed bartender on American Dad!.
