Kevin Michael Richardson and Will Friedle Join New ‘ThunderCats’ Voice Cast
If you were sweating the voice talent on Cartoon Network’s upcoming ThunderCats CG animated series, prepare to have your worries obliterated. As revealed by MTV Splash Page, hyper-prolific voice actors Kevin Michael Richardson (The Super Hero Squad Show, Batman: The Brave and the Bold, Young Justice) and Will Friedle (Batman Beyond, Justice League, Boy Meets World) will voice Panthro and Lion-O, respectively.During a Fox press event, Richardson elaborated on his new gig:
“The cast is fantastic,” he said. “Will Friedle as Lion-O and some other people who I want to keep anonymous at the moment. It’s up to the times, it’s a lot cooler, it’s going to move a little faster, and the special effects and the direction and the acting are just superb.”
While Warner Bros. has yet to officially confirm Richardson’s casting comments, I think it’s safe to take Panthro’s word for it. Dude swings nunchaku and builds giant cat-looking vehicles, you know? He wouldn’t lie.
