Lex Luthor, played by Clancy Brown, in LEGO Batman: The Movie - DC Super Heroes Unite

Clancy Brown, star of The Shawshank Redemption, Highlander, and Cowboys and Aliens, reprises his iconic villain role of Lex Luthor for the new Blu-ray/DVD feature-length animated film coming May 21: LEGO Batman: The Movie – DC Super Heroes Unite.

Over two nights in early February 2012, the versatile cast of LEGO Batman: The Movie – DC Super Heroes Unite gathered to record the animated film in a spacious Studio City location. The room was filled with renowned voice talent, yet one man – literally and figuratively – stood above the rest: Clancy Brown.

Nightsisters brings Savage Opress to Star Wars: The Clone Wars

Nightsisters brings Savage Opress to Star Wars: The Clone Wars

Just waiting to dig into some Clone Wars action scenes? Already a buzz with the Force thanks to the recent Star Wars Blu-ray announcements? Well Cartoon Network has some big stuff planned for you, starting with the newest Nightsisters storyline for season 3 of Star Wars: The Clone Wars. The three-episode arc introduces Savage Opress, whom George Lucas himself dubbed “Darth Maul’s brother.” With Clancy Brown behind the voice (just as he was for Justice League Unlimited’s Lex Luthor – and SpongeBob’s Mr. Krabs) it seems like this could be the teetering point of giving the Sith full control over the Jedi. Or, perhaps, Savage will stir for the good guys? Mr. Brown himself answers “you don’t really have a choice on who you are when the Nightsisters and Asajj and Count Dooku are involved.” Check out a sneak peek clip

Nickelodeon's SpongeBob SquarePants special, Mystery with a Twistery runs tonight

Tonight, at 8pm, there’s a mystery to be solved. A mystery, that is, with a twistery. So who do you call for emergencies such as these? There’s only one man up for the job — er, one sponge, that is. SpongeBob SquarePants stars in Nickelodeon’s Mystery with a Twistery in tonight’s special. Mr. Krabs (voiced by Clancy Brown, who also plays Lex Luthor on Cartoon Network’s Justice League) has grown tired of dealing with his villainous rival Plankton, so he sends his secret recipe for Krabby Patty burgers to a far-away chest for safekeeping. Unfortunately, as soon as it’s out of his sight, Mr. Krabs forgets the recipe and sends SpongeBob and Patrick to retrieve it. Little do they know, Plankton follows them, bent on stealing the secret for his own. At 8pm, it’s game time.

G.I. Joe: Renegades hits The Hub this October

G.I. Joe: Renegades hits The Hub this October

Hasbro Studios has big plans for the upcoming launch of their new network, The Hub. The channel, a joint project along with Discovery channel set to launch on October 10, 2010, will be a cartoon fan’s dream, with dozens of classic and new animated series. Of special note will be a revival of two of the more famous franchises; Transformers and GI Joe will be reborn as Transformers: Prime and G.I. Joe: Renegades. Branded as renegades for crimes they did not commit, a heroic group of young G.I.s is forced to “turn fugitive” as they battle to clear their names, and expose the evil that is Cobra Industries — a seemingly benevolent mega-corporation covertly controlled by a rogues gallery intent on creating a New World Order. The all-star voice cast will include a lineup of Charlie Adler, Lee Majors, Clancy Brown, Jason Marsden, Johnny Messner, and Kevin Michael Richardson, to name a few. Take a look at a teaser clip
