David Bowie Lends Voice to New SpongeBob Movie

Oct 26th, 2007 // 7 Comments

David%20Bowie.jpgOccasionally David Bowie has to do something other than be married to Iman. His latest side-project is a guest appearance in the upcoming SpongeBob movie Atlantis SquarePantis, for which he provides the voice of Lord Royal Highness, the king of Atlantis. Bowie’s character will presumably lead SpongeBob on an epic journey through glam rock, androgyny, and critically acclaimed musical experimentation. Or, you know, he’ll somehow unwittingly help SpongeBob and Patrick provoke stodgy Squidward and cranky Mr. Krabs. [CMJ]

    The guy can lend his voice to Spongebob but won’t deign to play himself on The Venture Bros.? What a dick.

    His character in Venture Bros. is a hot piece. That show needs to come back.

  3. Dead Air ummm Dead Air

    This is oddly enough the most normal character Bowie has played to date.

    Still won’t touch Hasselhoff in the first one.

    @GovernmentNames: I know, right? He could have Klaus Nomi and Iggy Pop as his evil henchmen, and he’d rather work with annoying sea creatures? MADNESS.

    @Nicolars: After Iggy Pop was in the interminable “Lil Bush” his cartoon escapades are dead to me. David Bowie deserves his own show anyway… I’m thinking a VH1 sequel: “David Bowie is 60… and still painfully cool.”

    wasn’t Jeffrey Tambor (Hank “Hey Now’ Kingsley and George Bluth, snr.) the voice of the king in the first film? if so, this is a stepdown…
