Who are the voices for Madagascar and Madagascar 2?

Voice over work is a top profession these days. Voice actors can choose between many different types of voice over jobs, such as: radio ads, voicemail recordings, TV commercials, jingles, video games, cartoons, television shows, movies, and more.

A popular voice over job choice today is working on cartoons and animated movies. Cartoons and animated movies showcase the depth of talent that many voice actors possess. By working closely with animators, directors, producers, and others, they bring characters to life on television and theater screens only through the use of their voices.

Film actors are increasingly being used for voice over work in animated films. By taking on the challenge of voice work, these actors and actresses are expanding their ranges as artists as well as increasing the chances of success for the films that they work on. An example of this is the film Madagascar, along with its sequel, Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa. These movies are voiced by many of the top names in Hollywood.

Madagascar, from DreamWorks Animation, tells the story of four animal friends who live in New York’s Central Park Zoo. After one of the friends comes up missing, the others break out of the zoo and go in search of him. They soon become reunited and find themselves on a ship on its way to Africa.
