Film Starring Tyler Perry and Oprah Seeking Voice Actors

The casting team for an ambitious animated film needs voice actors to play minor characters.  The movie is called, The Star and it features several well known actors and actresses.  The team is looking for actors with different types of voices to play supporting roles.


The Star is an animated kid’s movie about the religious nativity scene when the baby Jesus was born.  It is considered a comedy, but it is also meant to educated children.  The film focuses on a donkey named Bo and his quest to be apart of the nativity scene that everyone in the area is talking about.  He wants to be apart of something incredible, but too many people see him simple as an old donkey that doesn’t deserve to be there.

The movie features the voices from a huge cast of famous celebrities.  Kelly Clarkson voices a horse named Leah, Keegan-Michael Key voices Dave the dove, Oprah Winfrey plays Deborah the camel, and Tyler Perry plays Cyrus the camel.  Together, this cast sets out to create something special with the help of Sony Pictures Animation and Cinesite Studios.  The film was originally titled, The Lamb but it was switched when the cast was officially announced on January 19th 2017.  The animated feature film is set to premiere on November 10th, 2017!


Casting: Nationwide

Auditions: Online through Skype interviews and in person if chosen for the second bath of auditions.

Pay and Credit: Yes!

This is a tremendous opportunity to be apart of a movie with a plethora of famous actors and actresses.  Voice acting takes a very special talent, but if you have a unique sound and tenacity, you may find yourself and your career taking off to incredible heights.  Voice acting is by no means easy, but you may have a knack for it.  All it takes is dedication to your role and a special kind of voice.  The best part about voice acting is that you do not have to fit a certain guideline when it comes to your looks because you won’t be seen on camera!
