The wonderful, talented and suspicious hot for-an-older-man, Gary Oldman has joined the cast of Kung Fu Panda 2! Granted we won’t get to see that great face, but his voice will suffice.
The whole cast is supposed to be back for the sequel: Jack Black, Dustin Hoffman, Angelina Jolie, David Cross, Lucy Liu, Seth Rogen, and Jackie Chan. Oldman is a wonderful addition to the cast. Dude, it’s Gary Oldman!
Oldman is set to play a character known as Snowy White Peacock. Initially he helps Po and the gang to track down a group of bandits, but it turns out there is more to him than meets the eye. Ummm… so he’s the villain!
We’ve seen Oldman play just about everything over the years. His gentle demeanor will be perfect for deceiving Po and the Furious Five. Shouldn’t they be the Savage Six now or something?
The official title is still in flux. The two I’ve heard being thrown around are Kung Fu Panda: The Kaboom of Doom and Kung Fu Panda: Pandamonium. While the first one sounds better, but the second one makes me giggle and is therefore my vote.
Kung Fu Panda was one of the best films to come out of 2008 and easily one of my favorite animated movies of all time. I’m excited for what they have prepared for us this time around.
