Where are you based? In Toronto for example there is a cooperative organization for people looking to work in film & television (LIFT is the actual name). You can also check at your local theatre. That has worked well for me for finding actors to do voiceover work.

actually it's probably the opposite. everyone wants to work with big-names.

try your local moviemaking/acting college. students are usually more willing to do demo's than starving artists. that's your best bet. also try your local/community artistry groups. we have 'em up here in crappy new england, there must be one in LA.
