Seth Rogen Scares Up Boo U
He’ll voice a ghost for DreamWorks

19 August 2010  |  Written by James White  |  Source: Heat Vision Blog

Clearly upping his game in an attempt to challenge Jonah Hill and Jim Carrey for the title of Most Animated Characters Voiced In One Career, Seth Rogen has nabbed yet another part in a DreamWorks ‘toon, winning the lead role in the company’s spooky pic Boo U.

Rogen will portray the lacklustre spook that is sent back to ghoul school (we want royalties if they use the line “he’s going back to ghoul” in the marketing) to learn how to get his scary mojo working again. There, we expect, he’ll learn a lesson about being himself and not letting the fact that he’s dead interfere with achieving his goals.

While he’s proved he can deliver the goods in voice-over, surely DreamWorks could cast about for a few new names? After all, Rogen has appeared in Shrek The Third, Kung Fu Panda and Monsters Vs Aliens, not to mention the various Panda and Monsters shorts, and the upcoming Kung Fu Panda 2: Kaboom of Doom. Plus he was also in Horton Hears a Who! And he voices the title character in Paul.

But no, it looks like we’ll be hearing his vocal stylings once again in the film, which doesn’t yet have a solid release date, but will likely arrive either in 2012 or 2013.

RE:
so i wonder how many other ghost related films the other animation studios are working on.... seriously they all seems to do the same thing sometimes...isn't there about 10 films coming out about an evil super villian? Anyway... the trouble with Rogen is you can spot him a mile off when he's a voice artist, not that he's rubbish or anything... but maybe he needs to not do his stoner laugh....although that does actually make me laugh... but it does make you forget about the character he is More
