Blake Shelton To Lend His Voice to 'The Angry Birds Movie'

Posted December 29th, 2015 @ 1:56pm

Blake Shelton is a country singer, a coach on The Voice, a pop culture obsession, and now… a pig.

According to Entertainment Weekly, the multi-talented superstar has been tapped to play a “country-fried pork chop” named Earl in The Angry Birds Movie.

Blake will both voice Earl, who happens to share Blake's very own deer tracks tattoo on his forearm, and sing an original song for the forthcoming animated flick.

“They kept saying, ‘More country!’ ” Blake says of his time in the recording studio offering his already twang voice. “I felt like I was doing a voice-over for Dukes of Hazzard.”

The Angry Birds Movie, which is based on the popular game by the same name, also features the voices of Jason Sudeikis, Josh Gad, Kate McKinnon and Danny McBride.

See the official teaser trailer below. The Angry Birds Movie flies into theaters on May 20.
