I believe he's the dude who played the voice of Frank Grimes in the Simpsons.

I think he does every animal noise. If there's a barking dog or something like that, it's Frank Welker.

He gets the Toy Story movies, Finding Nemo and possibly credit as an extra in The Empire Strikes Back.

Only seven women in the top 50.

It's a little known fact that in addition to being a retired high ranking member of the Catholic Church, John Ratzenberger discovered that the umbilical cord is 90% potassium, and that common dust is 75% human skin.

The takeaway here is if you want a high per-film average, be in nothing but Harry Potter and Marvel Superhero films.

He's in every Pixar movie. He's they're good luck charm. There's even a joke about it in a bit during the ending credits of "Cars." Which is about the only thing about hat movie that I like.

Frank Welker has been in everything. The man is a voice-over legend.

The Pope? After the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost, I suppose.

RexTalionis: Frank Welker has been in everything. The man is a voice-over legend.


Yep, and it saddens me that a lot of people don't know who he is.
 
2013-05-11 11:46:20 AM  
Well, duh, he was "Stinky the Penguin" in  Mr. Popper's Penguins. So that right there would put him in the top ten.

And if you RTFA, you'll see that his actual total is even higher, because these figures don't include the receipts from such films as  The Computer Wore Tennis Shoes (1969) and  How to Frame a Fig (1971).

Also, I just noticed that he has a credit for "Spock Screaming" in  Star Trek III. So that's pretty awesome.

Probably because he's been dead for over 10 years.

Cool thing about Ratz is that he was an American ex-pat in London for a while, so he starred in a few of the blockbusters that were filmed at Pinewood, inc Superman I & II and Empire Strikes Back.

I'd love to be in that position. Enjoy a normal life, then, when somebody asks what your work is like, and you say "they're grrrrr-eat!" and holy farking shiat someone suddenly discovered who this Thurl Ravenscroft guy is.

If I was the movie trailer guy I couldn't help but use that to mess with people. Ordering pizza "in a world, where I have the munchies, one man stands tall. A pizza delivery guy takes on the 30 minute or less challenge." And so forth.

Frank Weller is the greatest voice actor ever. When Billy West describes you as "The God of voice acting" it's kind of a big deal.

His IMDB page.
 
2013-05-11 12:16:23 PM  
Don't forget Frank Welker's most famous role:

Frank and Jinx are..friends!

First LOL of the day!

And a good one too.

I will be saving and bookmarking those when I get back to my laptop.

Weller would still top it.

Dear Jerk: Steve Jobs.


You mean George Lucas, right?  I'm assuming you're talking about the Pixar impact.
 
2013-05-11 12:34:07 PM  
People know Frank Welker... they just don't know his name. Every animal with a personality in every cartoon from the 80s on was him. He played Uni in D&D. He played Abu in Alladin. He played Bandit in Johnny Quest. He's not a voice guy, he's honestly a sound guy. He's like the guy in Police Academy, but lesser known, more talented, and much friendlier.

*sigh* I miss Don LaFontaine. Movie trailers just aren't the same since he died.
 
2013-05-11 12:43:51 PM  
Frank Welker is a goddamn world treasure and subby should watch more  Gremlins.

/And  The Lion King
//And  Inspector Gadget
///And  The Informant, for a vanishingly rare real-life  performance as Matt Damon's dad

marty klebba coming in at 99 with only 18 movies averagin 118 mil.

pretty impressive for the little guy.
 
2013-05-11 12:51:24 PM  
Wait, the guy with over 200 IMDB credits is #1?!?!

Directly comparing voice actors to "regular" actors in this kind of way isn't really fair/useful. Also, the list isn't adjusted for inflation, so it's doubly pointless.
 
2013-05-11 12:54:46 PM  

Bathia_Mapes: I_Am_Weasel: Why no Desmond Llewelyn?

Probably because he's been dead for over 10 years.


Breathing status doesn't seem to be a prerequisite.
