    Most Recognizable Celebrity Voices

    Okay - it's the offseason for Yankee fans anyway...so time for some odd threads.

    I just saw Dennis Haysbert being interviewed and I find his voice so recognizable in the Allstate commercials...I absolutely loved him as President David Palmer on 24.

    I guess the most obvious to me is James Earl Jones....what are some voices that you find instantly recognizable?

    This is almost like a who's-who of commercials... Jon Hamm is instantly recognizable as the current Mercedes Benz announcer. Robert Downey, Jr. was as recognizable as the Nissan dude.

    Beef - It's What's for Dinner always had a recognizable actor....

    Matt Damon is doing a lot of voice-overs for ads lately.

    It seems that the named actresses doing voice-overs may be limited to Sally Kellerman... and I don't think she's done that much lately.

    Adam Sandler's on the list. I don't think anyone's going to beat muggs', though, at least among those who are familiar with the voice. The sitting president (Obama now, but whoever it is) is likely the #1 most recognized voice in this country at any given point, though, when it comes to number of people who recognize it.
