Olly Murs Joins Voice Cast of Blue Sky Studios’ Animated Spy Comedy Adventure ‘Spies in Disguise’
16th December, London, UK; singer-songwriter Olly Murs is lending his voice to the already star-studded cast of SPIES IN DISGUISE. Alongside Olly, Will Smith, Tom Holland and Karen Gillan will all be delighting audiences this Christmas with what promises to be fun for all the family.
Murs plays the cameo role of Junior Agent #1 and said, “I loved being a junior agent for Will Smith! What a great job, and it was a lot of fun. Maybe if I’m lucky I can graduate to a fully-fledged agent next time!”
Super spy Lance Sterling (Will Smith) and scientist Walter Beckett (Tom Holland) are almost exact opposites. Lance is smooth, suave and debonair. Walter is… not. But what Walter lacks in social skills he makes up for in smarts and invention, creating the awesome gadgets Lance uses on his epic missions. But when events take an unexpected turn, Walter and Lance suddenly have to rely on each other in a whole new way. And if this odd couple can’t learn to work as a team, the whole world is in peril. SPIES IN DISGUISE is an animated comedy set in the high-octane globe-trotting world of international espionage.
