What’s it like to record a voice role for an animated
Glen Powell and Max Greenfield show us just that in
ET’s exclusive sneak peek inside the recording studio as the two actors record
voices for the fifth season of Netflix’s Emmy-winning animated series, All Hail King Julien.
A spinoff of Madagascar, All Hail King Julien is about an
ill-equipped, self-involved lemur who becomes king and absolutely has no idea
what he’s doing. While a family show, the animated series’ fifth season, which
debuts Friday, May 12, is an unexpected satire of current events with Powell
and Greenfield joining as two stuck-up dolphins, Trent and Kipper, who want to
rid the ocean of undesirable sea creatures. (Check out the final animated version below.)
All Hail King Julien is just the latest of many projects for Powell. Following his breakout success on Scream Queens and in Richard Linklater’s Everybody Wants Some!!, the actor has been busy elevating his profile with supporting roles in Hidden Figures and the Netflix original film Sand Castles. He’ll next be seen in Guernsey, which he’s currently filming in the U.K. alongside Lily James, Jessica Brown Findlay and Matthew Goode.
Meanwhile, Greenfield has recently signed onto the new season of American Crime Story, which will focus on the 1997 murder of Gianni Versace. Executive Producer Ryan Murphy shared the news on Instagram, posting a photo of the New Girl actor alongside co-star Darren Criss, who portrays Andrew Cunanan. The cast also includes Ricky Martin, Edgar Ramirez as Versace and Penelope Cruz as his sister, Donatella.
