Disney has announced that Dane Cook will voice the lead character "Dusty" in the upcoming Cars spin-off, Planes.  Dusty dreams of being a racer, but because he's not built for it, he turns to a seasoned naval aviator to help him take on the defending champ of the racing circuit.  Cook previously did voice work in Farce of the Penguins, Mr. 3000, and an episode of the TV series, Duck Dodgers.  Cook had a pretty crummy run of feature films in the mid-2000s, but he did a treat turn in the little-seen Detention ("I make 40 'G's' a year plus dental. You may not have a Skittle."), and he probably endeared himself to some folks for his guest spot on Louie. Hit the jump to check out the press release.  Planes opens in 3D on August 9th. Here's the press release: Dane Cook Tapped To Voice Dusty In “Disney’S Planes »
