Michael Keaton will be lending his voice to Pixar’s upcoming Toy Story 3, playing the part of Barbie’s perpetually smiling boyfriend Ken in the animated feature.
The news was broken this weekend by actress Jodi Benson, who played iconic fashion doll Barbie in the second Toy Story feature. In an interview with IESB, she stated that she would be back for part 3 and that Keaton was onboard as her character’s boyfriend.
This sounds like fun casting, and the only way it could be better would be if Keaton was voicing the part of a Batman action figure.
Toy Story 3 hits theaters June 18, 2010.
