Larry the Cable Guy voices the popular character Mater for this Disney Pixar sequel, in stores November 1st

Larry The Cable Guy stands as the proud voice of Mater, a shabby little tow truck that brings a lot of heart and soul into the Disney Pixar animated franchise sequel Cars 2, which is set to make its Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray, and DVD debut this Tuesday, November 1st. We recently caught up with Larry to chat about the movie and life in Nebraska.

Here is our conversation.

Larry The Cable Guy: It's been such a long time since I last heard your voice!

It seems like yesterday. Are you in Los Angeles right now?

Larry The Cable Guy: No, I am in Lincoln, Nebraska.

Good. I was wondering what you were doing outside. It's cold and rainy here in L.A.

Larry The Cable Guy: I know. Believe it or not, »

Eddie Murphy to Voice Hong Kong Phooey

11 August 2011 12:00 PM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

As of late it seems like the folks at Hanna-Barbera are having a garage sale with the rights to their old TV shows.  In the past few years we’ve seen a horrid adaptation of Yogi Bear, an even worse Smurfs film (with a 2nd coming 2013), and now Alcon pictures has decided to bring everybody’s number one super guy to the big screen.  That’s right ladies and gentleman, I can only be talking about the one and only, Hong Kong Phooey.

Alcon Entertainment is indeed planning on a combination live action/animation rendition of the 70s classic which revolves around a mild mannered police station janitor who also doubles as a bumbling kung-fu practicing crime fighter.  Alcon Entertainment has chosen Eddie Murphy to voice the role of this crime fighting pooch and perhaps this will be the film’s only saving grace.  Murphy can be real hit or »

So It's Come to This: Eddie Murphy to Play Hong Kong Phooey

11 August 2011 10:44 AM, PDT | Planet Fury | See recent Planet Fury news »

In what is surely an early warning of the pending 2012 apocalypse, Eddie Murphy has signed to give voice to the Hanna-Barbera character Hong Kong Phooey in a movie that will be a hybrid of live action and animation. Apparently, I was mistaken when I wrote that Hollywood had run out of available cartoons to remake, although I wish to God I wasn't.

If you don't remember, and there's no reason you should, Hong Kong Phooey was about a talking dog (voiced by Scatman Crothers) named Penry whose alter ego is Hong Kong Phooey, a superhero martial arts crime fighter. Penry worked as a janitor in a police station filled with humans, though no one found that fact unusual, and whenever there was a case the police couldn't crack (which was seemingly every case), Hong Kong Phooey would step in and inevitably screw things up, only to be saved by his pet cat, »

Eddie Murphy to Star as Kung Fu-Fighting Pup in 'Hong Kong Phooey' (Video)

10 August 2011 4:06 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Eddie Murphy, the voice behind four “Shrek” films-worth of the crass character Donkey, will continue the sass as Hong Kong Phooey in a film version of the 1970s Hanna-Barbera animated series, TheWrap has confirmed. “Tooth Fairy 2” director Alex Zamm will be taking on the story about a mild-mannered dog-turned-crime-fighter who finds himself granted the power to walk on his hind legs, talk, and do kung fu. Voiced by Scatman Crothers in the '70s television classic, the new "Phooey" will be part live-action, part animation feature. “We could not be happier that Eddie »

Eddie Murphy to Voice Hong Kong Phooey

10 August 2011 3:18 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Alcon Entertainment is developing a live-action/animated adaptation of the 1970’s Hanna-Barbera cartoon Hong Kong Phooey, and Mr. Eddie Murphy has been tapped to voice the lead character. If you’re unfamiliar with the series, it centered on a dog named Penry who is granted the ability to walk, talk and do kung fu after stumbling into a mystic ceremony that grants him powers. Penry works as a janitor at a police station by day, but patrols the streets at night as Hong Kong Phooey in his “Phooeymobile” with the ever-handy “Hong Kong Book of Kung Fu” manual at his side. Say what you will about Murphy’s career as of late, but he always delivers great voice work. His fast-talking Donkey was one of the highlights of the Shrek series, and he was memorable as the dragon Mushu in Disney’s Mulan. Alex Zamm (Tooth Fairy 2) is directing Phooey, »

Eddie Murphy to Voice ‘Hong Kong Phooey’

10 August 2011 3:15 PM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

In the '70s, the animated fighting kung-fu dog Hong Kong Phooey was a minor television favorite, in part thanks to the work Scatman Crothers did voicing the character. Now the mutt is set for a hybrid live-action/animated big-screen revival, in which the late Scatman will be replaced by Eddie Murphy. A press release recaps the show effectively: Based on the 70’s cult classic Hanna Barbera animated TV series, a mild-mannered dog named Penry (Murphy) stumbles into a mystic ceremony and is accidentally granted mystic powers, including the ability to walk, talk, and do kung fu. Under the tutelage of his kung fu master, Penry dons a costume and becomes Hong Kong Phooey, and with the help of his trusting sidekick Spot the cat cleans up a rogues gallery of wacky criminals. Alcon Entertainment is behind the project, and Alex Zamm (Dr. Dolittle: Million Dollar Mutts, Tooth Fairy 2 - yike) will direct. »
