It’s hard to say enough good things about Disney but every single movie they put out is basically pure gold. It’s to the point where even the iconic villains of their stories are even loved. Disney has the villain game on lock and they have for decades! Have you ever wondered what the voices of your favorite villains look like in real life? Some are big-time actors that we’ve seen in countless other movies or shows but having a Disney voice acting job has to be the sweetest gig of all. I can’t imagine how awesome being a voice actor must be and the cool part is a lot of the time the animators try and resemble the actual actors! Here are some of the most iconic Disney villains and what their actors look like in real life!
1. Kevin Spacey as Hopper ‘In A Bugs Life’
Kevin Spacey has recently been removed from the hit show ‘House of Cards’ following disturbing sexual assault allegations. The role of Hopper was originally offered to Robert De Niro and Alec Baldwin before they decided on Spacey.
2. Keith David as Dr. Facilier in ‘The Princess and the Frog’
The animator responsible for Dr. Facilier, Bruce Smith said he was going for the love child of Captain Hook and Cruella De Vil and I think he nailed it!
3. Verna Felton as The Queen of Hearts in ‘Alice in Wonderland.’
Verna Felton was a long time voice actor for Disney she has voiced characters such as Flora in ‘Sleeping Beauty’ Aunt Sarah ‘Lady and the Tramp’ and the Fairy Godmother in ‘Cinderella.’
