Local actor and celebrity Sean Lee or “SeanLJE” has been offered to voice out “Waffles”, a Boston Terrier character in the new upcoming 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 ads.
Lee gets to play the supporting character of a cute Boston Terrier dog called Waffles, living in Metropolis, a setting in the DC movie.
This is the first time that Warner Bros. has selected a Malaysian cast member for a localised part and they hope that audiences will appreciate the humorous local touch to it.
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 has to convince his newfound friends from the shelter – Ace the hound, PB the potbellied pig, Merton the turtle and Chip the squirrel – who were given accidental superpowers to help him save them.
The animated film stars huge names in Hollywood including Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Kate McKinnon, John Krasinski, Keanu Reeves and many more!
When a Hollywood studio comes knocking on your door, of course, you’re elated!
Lee said, “I am blessed that my childhood dream of voicing a character in an animated film came true and I’m so honoured to represent Malaysia in a special edit of an international film!”
Although his part is just a minor role in the big film, 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 expatriate.
It is also said that Waffles will have a strong Malaysian accent. Will he? We’ll find out soon enough.
DC League of Super-Pets will be premiering in Malaysian cinemas this month on July 28. Stay tuned and watch out for this Subang Boston Terrier!
Here’s a trailer of the movie starring famous celebrities like Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart.
