One more actor is added to fill in the voice of a villain in the first 2D Disney pic in 3 years.
"Crash" star Keith David will assist in Walt Disney's production "The Princess and the Frog". He is set to fill in the voice of villain Dr. Facilier in the musical animated picture.
With David's addition, the line up so far is brought to two with Anika Noni Rose already on board. Rose will voice the main character Princess Tiana, a young girl living in the French Quarter and accompanied by a singing crocodile.
The fairy tale will be directed by the original scriptwriters John Musker and Ros Clements. Status is set in production and a 2009 holiday release is aimed.
This wouldn't be the first time David giving his vocal talent. He lent his voice as narrators in TV series "Jazz" (2001) and "The War" (2007) .
