Ivan Dixon - did a lot besides Hogans Heroes - loved him in "Nothing But a Man"
Idris Elba - fabulous in the Wire and his signature series Luther
James Earl Jones - probably the greatest movie voice of all time IMHO
Delroy Lindo - Cider House Rules
Morgan Freeman - Driving Miss Daisy and Million Dollar baby
Michael Clarke Duncan - The Green Mile - died way too young
Mahershala Ali - House of Cards and Green Book
Louis Gossett - Raisin in the Sun and Officer and a Gentleman
Brock Peters - To Kill a Mockingbird and The Pawnbroker
Denzel Washington - early career
Idris Elba is not an American. He's a Brit.

Sidney Poitier.

My favorites:

In the heat of the Night
Lilies of the field
The defiant ones
A patch of blue

You forgot one very important voice: Percy Rodriguez, who did the narration for the Jaws trailer

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Percy_Rodriguez

(Btw, according to the documentary, "The Shark is Still Working", it was his idea to do a measured delivery instead of a more "exciting" one.) Skip to 1945 for the inteview.
