Lena Headey and John Oliver have joined the cast of the Danger Mouse reboot.
The castings were announced during a panel at Comic-Con, with Game of Thrones star Headey playing US Secret Agent Jeopardy Mouse, while Oliver will voice the wonderfully-named villain Dr Augustus P Crumhorn III.
Said Headey of the role;
“I wanted to do it because it was pure nostalgia for me. I have children now and it’s just a treat to be involved in something that you loved as a kid and be able to share it. Those moments as an actor that come along once in while are not to be missed.”
“I’ve loved Danger Mouse my whole life. Danger Mouse was a significant part of my childhood. So to get a chance to do it is like getting a chance to step into your childhood, which is both a magical and a potentially hazardous thing! It will be awesome, I can’t wait to see it, let alone hear myself in it!”
Danger Mouse will be voiced by Alexander Armstrong, while Kevin Eldon will voice sidekick Penfold. Stephen Fry will also feature, voicing Colonel K.
The new series will debut in September.
