Seth Rogen to voice a friendly ghost in “Boo U”

By Sean O’Connell

Hollywoodnews.com: Seth Rogen could survive on his voiceover work.

The sarcastic comedian’s actually quite good lending his vocal talents to animated features. He’s like the 21st century version of Robin Williams or Eddie Murphy, improving decent cartoon features like “Monsters vs. Aliens,” “Horton Hears a Who!” and “Kung Fu Panda.” And we’ve just learned that Rogen’s about the get animated once again.

The “Knocked Up” star will play a ghost in DreamWorks Animation’s recently announced “Boo U,” according to the Hollywood Reporter. Rogen’s character has to go back to ghost school so he can learn how to be scarier. The movie, presented in 3-D, will be directed by “Igor” helmer Tony Leondis.

For those who actually like looking at Rogen – as opposed to just hearing him – he’ll net appear in the cancer comedy “Live With It,” as well as next year’s anticipated “The Green Hornet,” directed by Michel Gondry.
