    John Ratzenberger

    The other day I was reading an article about Chears, that said John Ratzenberger, who played Cliff, and was also General Willard in ESB, is one of the hottest cartoon voice over stars, and I was just wondering what things he's in, because his voice is so familiar, anyone?

    Pixar seems to like him:

    Hamm (the piggy bank) - Toy Story 1 & 2
    Yeti - Monsters, Inc.
    PT Flea - A Bug's Life

    Edit: IMdB also has him listed as a voice in the upcoming Finding Nemo. and some other Japanese movie

    Don't know what you were reading, but he was Major Bren Derlin in ESB.

    Ratzenberger has also been on:
    One Drew Carey Live episode - He tries to take over the show.
    The Disney live-action movie about the Pennsylvania Coal Miners.
    Superman 1 - Main missile control guy
    and I think he was a NASA Operator in Superman 2 but I haven't checked that out, it looks like him but it doesn't sound like him when he speaks.

    HA! What a crock, look at people like Gary Chalk, Charles Napier, David Kaye, Gregg Berger, Scott McNeil, or especially Frank Welker - these guys WORK as VO artists, Ratzenberger has done a handful of cartoons, pretty much NOTHING in comparison to Welker.

    JT, I had no idea Charles Napier did voiceover work...to me he's always been Murdock (from Rambo, not A-Team) and the cop from The Cable Guy.

    Ratzenberger was also the voice of Pitney Bowes.
