‘Kung Fu Panda 2’ Adds The Voice Of Gary Oldman To Its Cast
  |  @   |  

The great Gary Oldman has joined the cast of Kung Fu Panda: Kaboom of Doom. The movie is a sequel to DreamWorks’ animated hit, Kung Fu Panda, which brought in over $630 million worldwide when it was released in 2008.

Oldman will be voicing the role of the Peacock, who helps Po (Jack Black) to discover the location of some enemy bandits on his way to finding other pandas and learning about where he comes from. The Peacock, like most kung fu masters, has more to him than first appears.

Gary Oldman is probably best known to most these days for his role as Sirius Black in some of the Harry Potter films, and as Commissioner Jim Gordon in Christopher Nolan’s Batman Begins and The Dark Knight. All others will have a much more deeply-rooted appreciation for Oldman from his work in movies such as Dracula, Léon (The Professional), and The Fifth Element.

When it comes to voice acting, Oldman hasn’t done much in terms of movies, but he has done quite a few video games. He has a voice role in the movie Planet 51 and The Legend of Spyro, which is in production right now and based on The Legend of Spyro video game trilogy, which he also was a part of. Aside from that, he was a part of 2008’s Call of Duty: World at War, 2003’s Medal of Honor: Allied Assault – Spearhead expansion pack, and The Fifth Element video game.

Kung Fu Panda: The Kaboom of Doom will be directed by first-timer Jennifer Yuh, from the script written by Jonathan Aibel and Glenn Berger with a polishing shine put on by the unexpected hand of Charlie Kaufman. The movie is currently set for a June 3, 2011 release.
