Ever had the inkling to hear Blake Shelton voice the character of an animated pig? Neither did we. Still, "The Voice" judge is set to voice a villainous animal in the upcoming Angry Birds Movie, which is going to drop on May 20. He also wrote a tune for the film, but we'll let you wrap your head around one tidbit at a time.
Entertainment Weekly caught up with the country superstar, who admitted that sitting down to write a tune about an animal was a task that he wasn't really equipped to tackle. "I can write things about myself and my life," he said. "But I don't have a whole lot of experience being shot out of a slingshot at pigs."
Yup, Blake will voice one of those annoying pigs that cackle at you when your angry bird fails to hit any structures. He's not any ol' pig either. The star will voice a country twanged-out pig named Earl. "They kept saying, 'More country!' I felt like I was doing a voice-over for Dukes of Hazzard," he told the outlet.
The Angry Birds Movie will also feature voice roles from Jason Sudeikis, Josh Gad, and Danny McBride.
