Justin Timberlake Voicing Shrek 3
DreamWorks Animation announced at "Animation Now: Imagination Innovation Inspiration" at Lincoln Center today that Justin Timberlake is joining Mike Myers, Eddie Murphy, Antonio Banderas and real-life girlfriend Cameron Diaz in the voice cast for Shrek 3, opening May 18, 2007.
Timberlake will play a young King Arthur, or "Artie," King Harold's rebellious nephew who has no interest in being king, producer Aron Warner says. It's up to Shrek (Myers) to teach Artie how to act like royalty, Warner says.
You may remember that in Shrek 2, a poster of "Sir Justin" hangs in Fiona's girlhood bedroom.
Warner revealed a few more details saying "there is a baby involved" and that "in teaching Artie to be king, Shrek has to overcome his deep-seated fear of being a father."
