Before Fergie-Ferg, aka Stacy Ann Ferguson, was rockin' out with the Black Eyed Peas as a global pop star, she voiced the role of Sally Brown in a few Peanuts' specials like "It's Flashbeagle, Charlie Brown," and "Snoopy's Getting Married, Charlie Brown."

Arsenio Hall

Before he was a staple of 1990s late-night television with his signature "woof, woof, woof," Hall voiced the role of Winston Zeddemore in the cartoon "The Real Ghostbusters."

LaceyChabert

Lacey Chabert

She's best known for playing Claudia Salinger in Fox's "Party of Five" and the role of Toaster Strudel-heir Gretchen Wieners in "Mean Girls" but Chabert also has an impressive voice-actor resume.

She's voiced the roles of Eliza Thornberry in "The Wild Thornberrys" and also voiced Meg Griffin in the first season of "Family Guy" before Mila Kunis took over.

Dan Castellaneta 

One of the best known voice actors of his generation, Castellaneta has provided the voice of Homer Simpson in the mega-hit animated show "The Simpsons." But his talents don't end there. He's also voiced the roles of Krusty the Clown, Groundskeeper Willie, Mayor Quimbie, Hans Moleman, "Grampa" Simpson and Barney Gumble.

He's also voiced characters in "Darkwing Duck," "Aladdin," and "Hey Arnold!" among others. That's in addition to his film and screenwriting career! 

Does this guy ever sleep?

Seth Green

He's made a name for himself as a screen and television actor for roles in "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," "Can't Hardly Wait," "The Italian Job" and "Austin Powers," but Seth Green is also a successful voice actor and animated series creator.

He is the creator and executive producer for Adult Swim's "Robot Chicken," but Green has also lent his voice to "Family Guy" as son Chris Griffin. He's even lent his voice to video games like "Mass Effect."

And he has a pretty smokin' hot wife too, apparently.

AshTisdaleVoice

Ashley Tisdale

The former Disney Channel star made a name for herself in "High School Musical" and "The Suite Life of Zack & Cody," but she's also the voice of Candace Flynn in the widely-acclaimed and successful cartoon series "Phineas & Ferb."

She's also worked as an executive producer for ABC Family's "Picture This" and Bravo's "Miss Advised."

Pretty impressive.

JerryOrbach

Jerry Orbach

Late actor Jerry Orbach is best known for his long-running work on the series "Law & Order" and his role as Baby's father in "Dirty Dancing," but did you know he also voiced the suave candlestick Lumiere in Disney's "Beauty and the Beast" film? 

He even sang the candelabrum's famous musical numbers, which makes sense considering his substantial Broadway background.

Hayden Panettiere

Hayden Panettiere 

You might think that 2000's "Remember the Titans" was Hayden's first major role, but she actually voiced the role of lovable Dot in 1998's "A Bug's Life" before making it big in Hollywood. Since then, she's gone on to appear in "Heroes," "Nashville" and the controversial Lifetime film "Amanda Knox: Murder Trial in Italy."
