Mike Myers, Cameron Diaz, and Jack Black lead list of top voice talent


Mike Myers, Cameron Diaz, Eddie Murphy, and Jack Black lead list of top voice talent

Forbes recently compiled a top 10 list of Hollywood’s Animation A-List; the voice actor’s who bring in the most attention, and most money, for their animated features. With the pheneomenal and enduring success of the Shrek franchise, it’s not difficult to see why Mike Myers, Cameron Diaz, and Eddie Murphy are up there as Shrek, Fiona, and Donkey in the DreamWorks Animation pics, pulling in about $10 million a piece – potentially more in the upcoming Shrek Forever After. Kung Fu Panda’s Jack Black also edges towards the top, and will likely help kick that up a little further in the sequel, The Kaboom of Doom, scheduled to hit theaters summer 2011. Take a look at the full list
