Paul Giamatti, clearly an actor who has a solid sense of humor, has signed on to do a voice-role in Rob Zombie‘s animated flick "The Haunted World of El Superbeasto," which is based on the comic book of the same name. And hey: They’re doing it in "traditional" animation!
According to The Hollywood Reporter, "Paul Giamatti will headline the voice cast of "Rob Zombie Presents the Haunted World of El Superbeasto," in production at IDT Entertainment’s Burbank studio. He will play Dr. Satan, the film’s villain. The 2-D animated comedy, based on the Spookshow International comic book "The Haunted World of El Superbeasto" created by Zombie, follows the exploits of a washed-up Mexican wrestler, El Superbeasto, in the mythic world of Monsterland. El Superbeasto will be voiced by Tom Papa, his sister Susie X will be voiced by Sheri Moon Zombie and the robot Murray will be voiced by Brian Posehn. The film will be produced by Tom Klein, with Rob Zombie serving as exec producer."
