Michelle Yeoh, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Gary Oldman and Victor Garber have joined the impressive cast list of KUNG FU PANDA: THE KABOOM OF DOOM that already included Jack Black, Angelina Jolie, Dustin Hoffman, Jackie Chan, Seth Rogen, Lucy Liu, David Cross and James Hong. Gary Oldman will be voicing a peacock named Lord Shen, who will be the main villain in the film while Yeoh will a goat named The Soothsayer. Van Damme will voice Master Croc and Garber will voice Master Thundering Rhino.
I get that it’s cool to have Van Damme voice a character in an animated movie about Kung Fu, but Van Damme isn’t exactly the greatest voice out there. My guess is that his role will be more of a cameo than anything and the real meat of the voice work will fall on Gary Oldman.
