Voice Artist News

Well, as we all know by now, the brand new Knight Rider TV movie is going to be hitting the airwaves on February 17th. It's actually a pilot for a new TV show, and it will become a TV show if the ratings are good enough. However, with just barely a week before it airs, they've done some re-casting on the voice of KITT.

As we all know, Will Arnet, still best known as GOB [jobe] Bluth on Arrested Development, was to be the voice of KITT. But get this. Arnet also narrates ads for General Motors. And since the new KITT is a Ford, GM said it was a breach of their contract.

So, then, who's the new voice of KITT?

Val Kilmer!

That's right, KITT is now voiced by Batman, Madmartigan, Jim Morrison, and the Saint.

Hey, and we got a little more development on the upcoming straight-to-DVD Wonder Woman animated movie.

It was announced this morning that Nathan Fillion will be doing the voice of Steve Trevor.

For those who don't read Wonder Woman, Steve Trevor has been called "the Lois Lane to Wonder Woman's Superman." Steve Trevor is an Air Force pilot who's all hot for Wonder Woman, is always getting kidnapped by supervillains, and Wonder Woman always has to save him.

For those who aren't geeks, Fillion is still best-known as Captain Malcolm Reynolds in Joss Whedon's epic Firefly. And he's from Edmonton!

It was already announced that Keri Russel is doing the voice of Wonder Woman. In an interesting coincidence, Russel and Fillion played a couple in last year's hit indie romantic comedy Waitress.

The Wonder Woman straight-to-DVD animated movie should be out around this time in 2009.
