Mr. Krabs voice actor lands role in Warcraft film

Legendary Pictures confirms Clancy Brown and Daniel Wu will appear in new movie based on Blizzard's fantasy series.

Clancy Brown, the voice actor behind the penny-pinching restaurant boss Mr. Krabs from Nickelodeon's hit animated show Spongebob Squarepants, has joined the Warcraft movie.

Legendary Pictures announced the news on Twitter this week. Brown also appeared in The Shawshank Redemption and Starship Troopers. Brown will be joined by Daniel Wu (Protege, The Banquet), the second new actor confirmed this week for a role in the Warcraft film.

The Warcraft movie will be an origins story, though neither Legendary nor Blizzard have provided any details regarding who the actors will play. Previously confirmed actors for the Warcraft film include Captain America's Dominic Cooper and Paula Patton from Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol, among numerous others.

Production on the Warcraft film is slated to begin next month, before the movie comes to theaters on March 11, 2016.

Ugh, this is why I not only hate kids of today but places like gamespot.com


Fuck Mr. Crabs. Seriously, nobody cares about that character. Why didn't you post more noteworthy roles for the actor? The guy was the fucking Kurgan in Highlander! Isn't that more impressive than a crab on a horrible kids show?

So why not say the Voice of DR neo Cortex from Crash 2 or the voice of Hades from GOW 3. When on  a gaming website you could at least connect it to games he has been in.

There are more lame comments on this thread than almost any one I've ever seen on Gamespot.

It must be a really slow news day.

I don't see how this is worth mentioning on the front page here. It's something you could just peek at the movie credits and go:

"Oh... that's a thing..."

Not really front page material for a gaming news website.

it will have online only and youll have to pay for the xtra scenes if you want to watch the rest of the movie. But never fear while your AT the movie, an usher will arrive with a credit card reader with free popcorn. So you wont need to leave your seat for a scene to scene top up of your warcraft movie account.

I hear that he plays the Activision executives who try and make every possible penny from the film itself.
