Underdog Gets a Voice

by | April 27, 2006 | Comments

With Peter Dinklage recently signed to play the nefarious Simon Barsinister, the "Underdog" producers needed to find an actor to provide a voice for the canine crime-fighter. So they did. They got Jason Lee.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, "Have no fear, the voice of Underdog is here. "My Name Is Earl" star Jason Lee is lending his voice for the title character of "Underdog," Spyglass Entertainment and Walt Disney Pictures’ live-action adaptation of the classic 1960s cartoon. "Underdog" followed the adventures of a humble dog named Shoeshine Boy who became the superheroic Underdog, who spoke in rhyme. In the movie, he is adopted by a 12-year-old boy and uses his superpower to protect his love, Polly Purebred, and the citizens of Capitol City from the evil Simon Barsinister."

The guy who directed "Racing Stripes" is at the helm here. Keep your fingers crossed.
