While you won’t hear JC in any of the animated films this summer, he does have a surprising connection to several of the films making big bucks at the theatres this summer.
- Hellboy II: The Golden Army – While you won’t see JC’s trademark beard in the new installment of the Hellboy franchise this summer, you will hear him as Tom Manning in Hellboy – Blood and Iron. This animated prequels (which even my mom enjoyed, a rarity!) sets the stage for the film currently in theaters and also feature nearly the entire cast of the feature film reprising their roles.
- The Mummy: Tomb Of The Dragon Emperor – While Rick O’Connell and family will not be getting any help from Jim Cummings against the undead armies of the Dragon Emperor in theaters this summer, they will go head to head with Jim Cummings when he stars as Imotep (the original Egyptian mummy from the first two films) in The Mummy – Quest for the Lost Scrolls. This short lived animated series is available on DVD and has a popular cult fan following.
- Batman: The Dark Knight – How can Heath Ledger’s performance of The Joker possibly be better than Jim Cummings as Jekko the Clown on the Batman animated series?
Save yourself the ten spot that most movies cost now a days and rent one of the movies above for the summer movie experience, Jim Cummings style.
