Actor Louis Gossett Jr., who received an Academy Award for his co-starring role in An Officer and a Gentleman, has signed on to the star-studded voice cast for the independent 3D animated fantasy/adventure Delgo. He will be joined in the audio booth by Val Kilmer, Michael Clarke Duncan and Eric Idle.
Delgo, the first theatrical production from Atlanta-based Fathom Studios, is set in a divided land where a troubled youth and some unlikely friends must save the world from itself.
Gossett is voicing the character King Zahn, a benevolent but cautious leader whose plans for his people’s future are hindered only by his attachment to the past.
Anticipation for the film has been building, largely due to the “Digital Dailies” message board on the movie’s web site (www.delgo.com), where Fathom’s production teams post selected works-in-progress.
