Headey, Oliver Join “Danger Mouse” Movie

“Game of Thrones” star Lena Headey and HBO comedy show host John Oliver are set to lend their voices to the upcoming revival of hit 1980s animated series “Danger Mouse” which will premiere on CBBC in the UK this Fall followed by a U.S. Netflix launch in Spring next year.

The series follows the world’s greatest super spy, the eye patched and white Danger Mouse (Alexander Armstrong) and his reluctant civil servant hamster sidekick Penfold (Kevin Eldon) as they take on a host of villains. Headey will provide the voice of US Secret Agent Jeopardy Mouse, while Oliver is mad scientist wolf Dr Augustus P. Crumhorn III. Stephen Fry also lends his voice as the character of Colonel K.

Lena Headey says: “I wanted to do it [Danger Mouse] because it was pure nostalgia for me. I have children now and it’s just a treat to be involved in something that you loved as a kid and be able to share it. Those moments as an actor that come a long once in while are not to be missed.”

John Oliver says: “I’ve loved Danger Mouse my whole life. Danger Mouse was a significant part of my childhood. So to get a chance to do it is like getting a chance to step into your childhood, which is both a magical and a potentially hazardous thing! It will be awesome, I can’t wait to see it, let alone hear myself in it!”
