Country music star Blake Shelton has joined the voice cast for “The Angry Birds” Movie. Shelton will voice the part of Earl, who is a pig that has a Southern drawl and a vendetta against all bird kind. Shelton will join the already star-studded voice cast that includes Bill Hader, Jason Sudekis, Josh Gad, Peter Dinklage and more. The role will be Shelton’s third film credit and his first voice-over role. He was previously seen in last year’s “Pitch Perfect 2” and “The Ridiculous 6“. In addition to him voicing a character, the movie’s soundtrack will also contain a brand new original song by Shelton. “The Angry Birds” Movie will fly into theaters on May 20, 2016.
