It could be done.  it could be.  Its just another voice.  someone who can voice act should have no problems doing it.  That said the studios never pay for good voice acting for some reason.

I think there's a difference between dubbing animated films and live-action ones.  If you dub an actor in a live-action movie, you're changing his performance (usually for the worse), but in an animated movie, you're replacing the performance, so the change might not be so glaring or so disruptive to the film.

In either case often trying to compare the new product to the old is silly.  I generally think of it as a different movie.  There have been a few that have changed so much this isnt all that far from the truth.

   Most of the "celebrity" voice dubs in Miyazaki's work have at least been better than something like "Robots".  Last year, they did a second dubbing of "My Neighbor Totoro" with Dakota and Elle Fanning voicing the two sisters.  I wouldn't say they were better than the earlier voicework but sometimes you just hope the celebrity voices will bring someone's attention to a charming anime that's kid-friendly.

    They haven't been mentioned yet but I hope the Miyazaki fans are all familiar with "Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind" an earlier environmental-themed work than "Princess Mononoke",  and especially "Castle of Cagliostro" his feature-length Lupin the III adventure.  It's the equal in action to all but the very best Bond movies with gorgeous art.
