Burt Reynolds is the latest addition to the star-studded cast of DELGO, the independently produced computer-animated feature from Atlanta, Georgia-based Fathom Studios. The Oscar-nominated actor said in a release, "I am very proud to be a part of the first animated film being produced in my home state of Georgia."
Burt Reynolds (BOOGIE NIGHTS, SMOKEY AND THE BANDIT) is providing the voice of Delgo's boisterous father. The fantasy adventure is set in a divided land where a troubled youth and some unlikely friends must save the world from itself.
Reynolds joins an all-star cast, including Val Kilmer (THE DOORS, TOMBSTONE) voicing Bogardus, a fearless and cocky street-smart soldier; Eric Idle (MONTY PYTHON) voicing Spig, a bumbling, pompous-yet dimwitted-imp; Michael Clarke Duncan (DAREDEVIL, THE GREEN MILE) voicing Elder Marley, a mystical Stonesage master; Lou Gossett, Jr. (AN OFFICER AND A GENTLEMAN) is voicing the benevolent King Zahn; and Sally Kellerman (M*A*S*H) is narrating the film.
DELGO has created a worldwide following largely due to the digital dailies, a message board on the movie's Website (www.delgo.com) where the studio's production teams post selected works-in-progress, allowing fans to watch the making of the film as it happens.
