Michael Keaton joins Toy Story 3

Toy Story 3 is off to a running start. And we not only get the breif synopsis but more importantly another big name has been added to the cast. Looks like Michael Keaton will be giving a voice to Barbie’s beau Ken.

IESB.net says:

Not much is known about Toy Story 3 with the exception of a short synopsis given to the Wall Street Journal earlier this year: “Woody the cowboy and his toy-box friends are dumped in a day-care center after their owner, Andy, leaves for college.”It has also been revealed that Barbie and Ken would also be featured in the movie. Benson also revealed to the IESB that her Barbie will be cuddling up to none other than Beetlejuice himself, Michael Keaton, as Ken in the new film.

I do like Michael Keaton. I think he is one of the most under used actors in Hollywood. He has a broad appeal, and can play the goodguy just as easily as the badguy. His voice talents will be a perfect fit for the type of caricature types found in Toy Story.

I really like that they are advancing the storyline to have Andy all grown up. The toys will be discarded and handed down as he outgrows them. This was touched on in ToyStory 2 with Jessie the Cowgirl.

This also means that these classic toys will now start facing NEW toys that they don’t understand. I look forward to an excited speaking Anime toys and a LeapPad looking down on the Speak N Spell. Perhaps a theme of accepting the joy in the simplicity of toys.

An action figure is just an action figure. It takes something special to be a toy.
