Ratatouille director Brad Bird (The Incredibles) revealed today at ShoWest in Las Vegas that Peter O’Toole (Venus) will be providing a voice for the Pixar film, opening June 29. O’Toole voices a food critic named Anton Ego.
In the new animated-adventure, a rat named Remy (voiced by Patton Oswalt) dreams of becoming a great French chef despite his family’s wishes and the obvious problem of being a rat in a decidedly rodent-phobic profession. When fate places Remy in the sewers of Paris, he finds himself ideally situated beneath a restaurant made famous by his culinary hero, Auguste Gusteau (voiced by Brad Garrett). Despite the apparent dangers of being an unlikely – and certainly unwanted – visitor in the kitchen of a fine French restaurant, Remy’s passion for cooking soon sets into motion a hilarious and exciting rat race that turns the culinary world of Paris upside down.
