Blake Shelton to Voice a Pig in the ‘Angry Birds’ Movie
It's official, Blake Shelton IS a big pig.
News broke yesterday that Blake Shelton will be voicing a pig by the name of "Earl" for the upcoming Angry Birds movie, and Entertainment Weekly provided us with the first look at this very countrified hog...
(Just in case you didn't figure it out, Blake's Earl is the one with the cowboy hat and guitar)
Blake told Entertainment Weekly that during the recording process, producers kept telling him Earl needed to be "more country" to which Blake replied; "I felt like I was doing a voice-over for Dukes of Hazzard.”
Blake also wrote a song for the animated film that features the voices of Jason Sudeikis, Josh Gad and Danny McBride among others. The movie is due to hit theaters on May 20, 2016, and apparently Blake Shelton is a big fan of not only the movie, but the game too. In fact, he summed his obsession up perfectly by telling Entertainment Weekly;
“I wish I had a dollar for every minute I lost playing that freaking game, you know?” he says. “Well, I guess I do now.”
Check out the teaser trailer for the movie, and be sure to mark May 20 down on your new 2016 calendar.
