One thing that's always fascinated me about Futurama was the high number of voices done by VIPs. Like...

Al Gore (Vice President)
Most of the old Star Trek crew (except Doohan and Kelley  hmpf )
John Goodman
Lucy Liu
Sigourney Weaver
...that's all I can remember right now. Is there a list yet?  wink

Not to mention Katey Sagal as Leela...   love

One of the things I'm grateful about regarding Futurama is the low amount of plot relevant guest stars (a thing another Groening show excels at).

Anyway...

Bea Arthur as Femputer in "Amazon Women In The Mood"
Dawnn Lewis as Morgan Proctor in "How Hermes..."
Bob Ueker and Hank Aaron in "A Leela Of Her own"
Nichelle Nichols, Gary Gygax and Stephen Hawking(s voicebox) in AOI I
Dan Castellanent Casjellanjeta Castejlanetja ... the guy who does the voice of Homer Simpson as Beelzebot in "Hell Is Other Robots"
Phil Hendrie as Free Waterfall Jr, Free Waterfall Sr, and Old Man Waterfall

Nora Dunn was Morgan Proctor. Dawnn Lewis was Labarbara Conrad in A Flight To Remember, How Hermes Requisitioned His Groove Back, The Route Of All Evil to name a few. I know you probably meant to say that but I enjoy being a git  big grin

Welcome to PEEL, Satan. Enjoy it here. You owe Farnsworth.

Actually, it's more embarrasing than that. I accidently mixed up Nora and Dawn. I remembered from tha audio commentaries the one doing the voice of Morgan spelled her first name with two n's, and instantly Dawn Lewis popped up.

Conan O'Brien?
Parker Posey and Donovan in "The Deep South"

Don't confuse not caring with not knowing!

Yeah, I just wasn't sure it was actually him doing the voice. The voice-actors are so talented it's difficult to tell at times.

Just listen to iHawk in "War Is The H-Word", if you didn't know better you would actually think it was Alan Alda doing the voice. Maurice Lamarche is one heck of a talented voice actor.

Here is one that doesn't crop up very often:
Sarah Silverman as Michelle in the Cryonic Woman. Another one don't think anyone has listed is Jan Hooks as Anglyne in Bendless Love. It sounds as though everyone else has been listed in the above posts.

Some guest stars are fine, but I'm glad most of Futurama's haven't been self played.  Self played guest stars in television shows are generally cheesy, and even when they're not they're usually a replacement for much better non guest star material.  Though, at least in this show we get to see them as heads in jars (I'd be more accepting of the upcoming Tony Blair appearance on The Simpsons if they had him as a head in a jar, or better yet impaled on a very sharp object).

Grim, check both the DVD commentary for and the ending credits for Cryonic Woman. For some reason this is not a highly known fact that Sarah Silverman played the voice of Michelle in this episode. It is true though that in the pilot Michelle was voiced by Kath Soucie for what little lines she had.

Hmm, I couldnt find it in the commentary, and she IS listed in the credits.

Searching the net gives proof for both arguments :S

We debated this issue forever over at FF and this was even after getting confirmation from someone who knew Kath Soucie so he knew that she did not play her.
The reason you don't hear it in the commentary is because if your set is like mine there is a tiny glitch at just the moment that John DiMaggio is talking about her being in the episode. DiMaggio talks about a joke that she told him but he messes it up and so he just skips it. I believe it is right after the break when Michelle is first thawed. Check there. As I said her name is not mentioned but she is alluded to.

Strange, considering Kath Soucie has appeared numerous times as Cubert and other random kids in the show that they would change the voice actor for "The Cyronic Woman?"

Anyway, there's also Phil Hendrie for his three Waterfall family member parts, and Bob Odenkirk as Chaz in "The Why of Fry" as well.

Which leads me to a question: Who did George Foreman's voice in "Raging Bender" btw? If it really WAS George, he certainly wasn't listed. Is it explained in the Season 2 commentary?

We'll see about this. I think it's about time I started a poll in the TV forum.

John DiMaggio did the voice for George Foreman in Raging Bender. It was mentioned in the commentaries.
