Quiz: Whose Voice is That?

By Stefanie Lee

Feb 25, 2010

During a recent TV.com happy hour staff meeting, we landed on the topic of TV commercials. And, more specifically, some of the (in)famous voices behind them. Like that guy whose full-time job must be narrating movie trailers, or that guy with the annoying Australian accent who does the Outback Steakhouse commercials, or that guy with the cheeky Australian accent who voices the Geico gecko. And then there are the famous people. Did you know that John Corbett (Sex and the City) is one of the many Applebee's voices? Or that Richard Dreyfuss did Honda commercials not too long ago? There are a ton of celebrity voices in the ad-sphere, and some of them are harder to guess than you might think. Click "Start Quiz" below to see how many of the following fifteen voices you can recognize.

    The mark of a good "guess the celebrity voiceover" quiz is that when you find out who it is you say, "Oh, wow, I didn't realize that was him (or her." It SHOULD NEVER BE, "Who?" This quiz had some obscure people. Amy Sedaris? You're kidding. And they shouldn't include an actor disguising their voice, unless it's it's something they've done on their show or in their movie. This quiz sucked. Here's a much better one: http://www.sporcle.com/games/Hejman/thisquizbroughttoyouby

    4/15 right. I think that's good, considering I really don't watch that much TV, especially not commercials.

    13/15 I know I don't watch too much tv, but I do watch a lot of movies. And I am killer at this when watching animated movies too. Everyone always asks me "who is that...i kno that voice?"
