If you’re a fan of Jerry Seinfeld, you should definitely watch Bee Movie, now out on DVD. In addition to his credits as writer and producer, Jerry voices the main character, Barry B. Benson, as he enters the working world of bees and finds himself on a grand adventure in New York.
This is Jerry’s first role as a voice actor, and he certainly brings life to his character! The voice is unmistakable as his, however he makes it unique and believeable.
Jerry is joined by actors such as Renee Zellweger, Patrick Warburton (an actor whose voice you hear quite a bit on television and in film), Chris Rock, and John Goodman. You’ll hear cameos from celebrity voices such as Sting (how apropos!) and Oprah Winfrey as well. This is an A-list cast to be sure!
Reviewer Stephanie Ciccarelli says that she was particularly impressed by John Goodman’s voice acting:
Blow the doors down, powerful, electric and showered the booth with an ever-so-convincing southern drawl. Worth watching and waiting for. It was clear that he was having a lot of fun with this role.
That itself sounds like reason enough to enjoy the celebrity voices in this great film! Read the rest of her review here.
