Ratchet and Clank The Movie got a whole bunch of celebrities to voice some new characters in the upcoming movie.
The cool thing behind the movie was that the original voice actors from the game are also doing the movie. James Arnold Taylor as Ratchet and David Kaye as Clank for example, but being honest they are not really big name brands. If it's one thing Hollywood knows, it's that if you attach a popular name to a movie it then creates easy marketing. Those celebrities then do interviews etc... and promote the movie.
Well that is what happened today as the studio behind the film has announced Paul Giamatti, John Goodman, Bella Thorne, Sylvester Stallone, and Rosario Dawson have all joined the cast of the movie for additional characters. The film is being directed by Kevin Munroe (Tmnt) and written by Tj Fixman, who wrote the series for Insomniac. »

Sylvester Stallone, Paul Giamatti, John Goodman, Bella Thorne and Rosario Dawson are set to lend their voices to the upcoming computer-animated feature "Ratchet & Clank" based on the popular PlayStation game series.
The group join the four leading cast members James Arnold Taylor as Ratchet; David Kaye as Clank; Armin Shimerman as Nefarious; and Jim Ward as Captain Qwark with all four reprising their roles from the games.
The story follows the two unlikely heroes as they struggle to stop a vile alien from destroying every planet in their Galaxy. When the duo stumble upon a planet-destroying weapon, they must join forces with The Galactic Rangers in order to save the galaxy.

Hugh Jackman has played Logan aka Wolverine in seven different films. It’s an impressive number that will shortly increase with a third solo Wolverine film and possibly X-Men:Apocalypse, although at the time of writing he has yet to be officially cast. A few other names are snapping at the heels of Jackman, notably the cast of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. If you include the forthcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron, Chris Evans has played Captain America four times (five if you include his appearance as Loki using magic to look like the first Avenger in Thor: The Dark World), Scarlett Johansson and Chris Hemsworth have portrayed Black Widow and Thor respectively four times each whilst the King of the McU, Robert Downey Jr. has made an impressive six appearances as Iron Man/Tony Stark (including his post-credit appearance in The Incredible Hulk).
Unfortunately for Hugh Jackman, as far as this article is concerned, »

Donatello is dead! He was taken out in brutal fashion in the pages of today's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #44, and fan-favourite villains Bebop and Rocksteady were the ones responsible for the beloved character's murder as you can see below. The series is written by Tom Waltz and Tmnt co-creator Kevin Eastman, and IGN has more details on the moments leading up to this if you're curious to learn more. Apparently, "Leonardo, Raphael, and Michelangelo were trying to stop Krang from terraforming the planet using the alien "Technodrome," leaving Donatello running command from their home base. Shredder had ordered Bebop and Rocksteady to kill Donatello if anything went wrong, and sure enough, something did. Donatello tried to fight them off, even getting some help from Metalhead (being controlled by scientist Harold Lillia), but the duo was too much. The killing blow came when Rocksteady smashed his shell with a sledgehammer." Though »
It's been announced that Sarah Michelle Gellar (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) has been cast in a recurring role in Season 2 of the animated series Star Wars Rebels. Executive producer/supervising director Dave Filoni said, “We're thrilled to have Sarah Michelle Gellar on board for season 2. She is a true 'Star Wars Rebels' fan and her passion undoubtedly comes through in the voice recording sessions.”
Hopefully Sarah Michelle Gellar's character arc will last for many episodes, because selling the long-term emotional resonance of the title character's ongoing struggles in Buffy the Vampire Slayer was one of the key strengths of her iconic seven-year performance as Buffy Summers. And with all new Star Wars (from Star Wars Rebels onwards) said to be inter-connected in story terms, who knows what other instalments of the franchise the character could appear in?
(Of course, depending on acting availability, there's always the possibility »
