Local actor and celebrity Sean Lee or “SeanLJE” has been offered to voice “Waffles”, a Boston Terrier character in the upcoming new DC League Of Super-Pets, as confirmed by Warner Bros. Pictures.
The Subang Jaya actor is known for his roles in the drama series ‘The Hotel’, ‘Romantika 4 Hari 3 Malam’ and ‘Jujurlah Nikahi Aku’. He’s also the familiar face you see on some Watsons, Lazada and Corntoz commercials.
Lee plays the supporting character of a cute Boston Terrier dog called Waffles, living in Metropolis, a DC movie setting.
This is the first time that Warner Bros. selects a Malaysian actor for a localized role and they hope audiences will appreciate the local humorous touch.
DC League Of Super-Pets tells the story of Superman’s best friend, Krypto the Labrador Retriever Super-Dog. When his owner and the rest of the Justice League are kidnapped, he must convince his new friends at the shelter – Ace the dog, PB the pot-bellied pig, Merton the turtle and Chip the squirrel – who have been given accidental superpowers for the help save them.
The animated film stars big names in Hollywood, including Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Kate McKinnon, John Krasinski, Keanu Reeves and more!
When a Hollywood studio comes knocking on your door, of course, you’re in heaven!
Lee said, “I’m blessed that my childhood dream of voicing a character in an animated film has come true and I’m so honored to portray Malaysia in a special cut of an international film!”
Although his role was only a minor role in the big movie, Lee was so ecstatic that he even created his own backstory for this character. He envisioned Waffles as a brutally honest dog from Subang Jaya, Malaysia, whose owner moved to the metropolis as an expat.
It is also said that Waffles will have a strong Malaysian accent. Will he? We will find out soon enough.
DC League of Super-Pets will premiere in Malaysian cinemas this month on July 28th. Stay tuned and watch out for this Subang Boston Terrier!
Here is a trailer for the movie featuring famous celebrities like Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart.
