Giamatti Talks Dirty Funny Superbeasto

An animated flick from Rob Zombie.

Rob Zombie
took a break from producing The Haunted World of El Superbeasto, an
animated flick detailing the adventures of a superhero and his sexy sidekick,
to make his
remake. Voice actors from the cartoon, based on Zombie’s own comic, have completed their
work and just await its release.
Paul Giamatti
revealed what kind of bad guy the heroic Superbeasto will face.

"I played
Satan basically," said Giamatti. "I played this guy named Dr. Satan. It was kind
of like a James Bond villain.  I mean, it was nuts, I don’t know what happened
to it. Hopefully it comes out soon, but it was a dirty cartoon."

The film
ombines sleaze
with humor, so the ultimate film will be a mad compilation of tones, which is
also reflected in Giamatti’s Dr. Satan.

"I did a
kind of Vincent
-y kind of thing, a sort of fey villain sort of thing.  It was
funny," said Giamatti, "The animation was funny too, but it’s all sort of sex
and drugs and jokes, which was good, which I like. We’ll see how it works out."

Superbeasto has not received an updated official release date (it was originally due in May) but news from the Superbeasto MySpace blog says there’s only “a little more animation to do.” Voice actors joining Giamatti in the cast include Brian Posehn, Sheri Moon, Danny Trejo, Tom Papa, Rosario Dawson, Geoffrey Lewis, Rob Paulsen (AKA the voice of Pinky from Pinky and the Brain, and Yakko from The Animaniacs) and Tom Kenny (AKA the voice of SpongeBob SquarePants).

Rob Zombie’s


will hit theaters August 31.
