Current world #1 DJ Hardwell can now add another item to his bursting-at-seams list of talents!
Aside from constantly releasing some of the heaviest hitters in the electronic dance music industry and providing a home for the next generation of electronic talents via Revealed Recordings, he has also ventured into voice acting. And not just in any random role – Hardwell is a minion!
Yes, that minion pictured above. In fact, that would probably best depict Hardwell at the decks if he was really a minion.
Sun Times sat down with the DJ/producer extraordinaire recently before his set at the Spring Awakening Music Festival in Chicago over the weekend for a quick chat. He was asked, “You’ve traveled the world, released an album and become the No. 1 DJ in the world, things most people dream of. So what’s on your bucket list?”
To which Hardwell replied:
Well, I actually just fulfilled one of the things on my bucket list in Holland. You know that the new “Minions” film is coming out, right? I did one of the voices for one of the characters in Dutch, in the Dutch version of the movie. Being a voice actor, I’ve always wanted to do something like that. I play Walter Jr., he’s one of the guys on the big criminal tour, one of the criminals in the movie.
And this next picture will make the above statement seem a whole lot more legit.
Too cute! Oh, and we really should add that nugget of information in our “Minions” fun facts feature, eh? 😉
“Minions” will be released in cinemas nationwide come 18th June 2015.
