Robot a Spitting Image of Tudyk

Looks like others are following in the footsteps of Andy Serkis and Gollum (The Two Towers) . According to The Hollywood Reporter, actor Alan Tudyk (A Knight’s Tale, Ice Age) has been tapped to be the animation reference to the CG character Sonny opposite Will Smith in the sci-fi action film I, Robot for 20th Century Fox and director Alex Proyas.

Shooting for the film begins on May. I, Robot is being produced by Laurence Mark and John Davis, with Wyck Godfrey and Topher Dow executive producing. Inspired by the classic story collection by sci-fi author Isaac Asimov, is a futuristic thriller in which a detective (Smith) investigates a crime that may have been perpetrated by a robot (Tudyk), even though the three prevailing laws of the robot society suggest that such a crime is impossible.
