It was announced at the D23 Expo this weekend that “Two and a Half Men” star Jon Cryer will be voicing the character Dusty in the Disney/Pixar movie “Planes.” The animated movie will arrive on Blu-ray and DVD in the Spring of 2013.
Here’s what John Lasseter had to say about Jon being a part of the movie:
We are incredibly excited to have Jon Cryer on board as the voice of Dusty. Jon brings so much comedy and believability to this character who dreams of soaring alongside his heroes in the ‘Wings Around the Globe’ Rally. ‘Planes’ is a wonderful story that takes audiences on a great ride and Jon brings so much heart to the film.
Here is a description of the movie:
“Dusty lives in the small town of Propwash Junction, and the single-prop agriculture plane could not be further from the lean, mean, trophy-winning machines he idolizes – and his co-workers remind him constantly. His mentor Skipper is convinced that Dusty has the engine to compete with the best, and helps encourage him to pursue his lifelong dreams. But if Dusty wants to make his dreams a reality, he’ll need to push himself further than he ever imagined. With the help and support of a crew of all-new and hilarious characters, Dusty wings his way into the biggest challenge of his life.”
Aww, this sounds like it’s going to be a cute, heartwarming movie!
