SDCC: Jackson & Theron Have Astro Boy Cameos

ON

Director David Bowers has just announced that both Samuel L. Jackson and Charlize Theron are set for roles in this fall’s Astro Boy, joining an all-star celebrity cast that includes Freddie Highmore, Nicolas Cage, Kristen Bell, Donald Sutherland and Nathan Lane, among many others.

Though it is unclear exactly what characters either actor will be voicing, Bowers specifically mentioned that Jackson’s role is a special cameo as a robot, which should come as no surprise as Jackson is a self-professed comic fan.
