Top 3 Films: Wallace Shawn

The Princess Bride (1987)

This classic Rob Reiner directed film was based on a book by William Goldman.

Shawn plays Vizzini, the mastermind behind the kidnapping of the princess.

It also stars Cary Elwes, Robin Wright, Mandy Patinkin, Christohper Guest, Andre the Giant, Peter Falk, Fred Savage, Billy Crystal, and Carol Kane.








Toy Story (1995)

The first ever Disney/Pixar film.

Shawn does the voice of Rex the dinosaur.

The other actors that lent their voices to this film were Tom Hanks, Tim Allen, Don Rickles, Jim Varney, John Ratzenberger, Annie Potts, Lauri Metcalf and R. Lee Ermey.

This film, of course, spawned 2 sequels.

The Incredibles (2004)

Another voice-only role for Shawn as Gilbert Huph, Bob Parr's boss in the insurance company.

Other voices in this film include Craig T Nelson as Bob Parr/Mr Incredible, Holly Hunter as Helen Parr/Elastigirl, Jason Lee as Buddy Pine/Syndrome, and Samuel L Jackson as Lucius Best/Frozone.

I would love to see a sequel to this one.
