Leaving aside animations, what examples of voice performances can people think of, where the actor/actress never appeared onscreen?

What got me thinking about this was Scarlett Johansson in Spike Jonze's upcoming film Her.

I'll give you some examples...

Douglas Rain as HAL in 2001: A Space Odyssey
Kevin Spacey as GERTY in Moon
Sally Kellerman as the boss in Payback (Straight Up) [She replaced Kris Kristofferson's character and never appeared on screen]

Can anyone think of any others?

Serkis was motion capture, all his performance.

I am aware of that, however he doesn't physically appear onscreen. Just a CG ape.

Are we doing voices alone or just all voice acting for characters on screen then?

On a similar note, Peter Serafinowicz as Darth Maul (played physically by Ray Park)...

OP says voice only. He contributed more to the performance than just his voice. Have Gollum and half the cast of Avatar if Caesar counts.

I can't help but think of Edward Norton in Kingdom of Heaven. He's onscreen but masked so his voice is the only way he can be identified.

Doesn't he physically play the character too though?
