COMING WEDNESDAY

TV news -- and much more!!!

LEX LANG ON THE BATMAN

Veteran voice actor Lex Lang told The Continuum he recently recorded several roles for the first two episodes of Kids' WB!'s new season of The Batman.

"I did the voices of Metallo, Clayface and the mayor," Lang told The Continuum. "And in the second episode I did the voice of a slacker dude who helps Superman get some Kryptonite off of him."

Lang said he lowered the register of his voice for Metallo and expects a computer enhancement to fit the character.

According to Lang, George Newbern is reprising his Justice League role of Superman and Clancy Brown is returning as Lex Luthor. Brown also voiced Mr. Freeze on The Batman.

Lang, whose recent credits include the voice of an announcer in the "Champions" episode of Legion of Super Heroes, said he enjoys working with Warner Bros. Animation and voice director Andrea Romano.

"I L-O-V-E working with Warner Bros and that's in capital letters with 10 exclamation points," Lang said. "Andrea is so talented as a director and brings out the best in the actors."
