Mariah Carey is best known for being a powerhouse vocalist, but if you didn’t know, the singer has apparently acted in a few films before.
Now, the songstress is ready to update her acting resume because she has reportedly joined the voice cast of the upcoming “The LEGO Batman” movie.
Though several sites reported that Carey will voice the character Commisioner Gordon, The Hollywood Reporter stated that she will be lending her voice to the role of the mayor of Gotham City instead in this “LEGO Movie” spin-off film.
Though it’s just a voice role, the role will mark her return to the big screen after starring in Lee Daniels’ “The Butler” in 2013. She also starred as a social worker named Ms. Weiss in Daniels’ criticially-acclaimed film, “Precious”.
Will Arnett will once again lend his voice to the role of caped crusader in this spin-off film. Michael Cera will voice Batman’s sidekick Robin while Ralph Fiennes will voice Batman’s butler Alfred. Rosario Dawson and Zach Galifianakis are voicing Batgirl and The Joker respectively.
Dan Lin, Roy Lee, Phil Lord, and Christopher Miller are reuniting to produce the spin-off film while Chris McKay, the animation supervisor for “The LEGO Movie”, is directing. The script was written by author-screenwriter Seth Grahame-Smith.
“The LEGO Batman” is currently slated for release on 26th May 2017.
