If you’re a “Game of Thrones” fan, the new season of “Robot Chicken” is appealing directly to you. During a press event for “DC Comics Special II: Villains in Paradise,” executive producers John Harvatine and Eric Towner, as well as writer-director Kevin Shinick, spoke to Zap2it about the upcoming Season 7 treat.
“We’ve got George R.R. Martin playing himself,” Towner says. “He came to the studio and recorded himself, so there’s some ‘Game of Thrones’ stuff. That’s pretty exciting.”
Martin isn’t the only notable celebrity appearing, though. Shinick goes on to share, “We’ve got a ‘Les Miserables’ parody that’s got Zachary Levi.” In fact, Shinick, who has several broadway credits on his resume, will also sing in the parody.
“Robot Chicken” Season 7 kicks off April 6 on Cartoon Network with “DC Comics Special II: Villains in Paradise.” It has quite the packed roster itself, including Alfred Molina returning as Lex Luthor. This time out, Molina has a musical number and it’s one that will be stuck in your head forever. Take a look at “Sexx Luthor” below.
Chris E. Hayner is equal parts nerd, crazy person and coffee. He watches too much TV, knows more about pro wrestling than you do and remembers every single show from the TGIF lineup. You may have seen him as a pro-shark protester in "Sharknado 3." His eventual memoir will be called "You're Wrong, Here's Why..." TV words to live by: "I'm a firm believer that sometimes it's right to do the wrong thing."
