Lil Wayne Starring in a Pixar Movie?
Pixar films have featured some interesting casting choices over the years but none may be more unusual than...Lil Wayne? If casting rumors are to be believed, Weezy - once charged with multiple felonies including possession of narcotic drug for sale, possession of dangerous drugs, misconduct involving weapons and possession of drug paraphernalia - could be the star of an upcoming 3D animated kids movie.
A few sites around the web (including ones here and here) are listing a reported cast list for Pixar's 'The Good Dinosaur' that includes Lil Wayne, Joan Rivers, Jason Alexander and, of course, John Ratzenberger.
We've reached out to reps at Disney and Pixar for comment but, as of press time, haven't heard confirmation on the news.
'The Good Dinosaur' is scheduled to hit theaters on May 30, 2014 and goes like this:
What if the cataclysmic asteroid that forever changed life on Earth actually missed the planet completely and giant dinosaurs never became extinct?
We do know the story will follow a boy and his pet brontosaurus. Dee Bradley Baker, who has some experience playing prehistoric animals on 'The Last Airbender,' is rumored to be providing the dinosaur voice and we can't imagine Tha Carter playing the little boy, so we'll have to wait and see what, if any, involvement he has with the Pixar.
So what do you think? Is it bad for Pixar's reputation to include Lil Wayne - somewhat notorious for his use of marijuana and purple drank - in one of their films? Or do the artistic ends justify the means?
