Dwight Howard voices Disney's 'Kick Buttowski: Suburban Daredevil'

September 18, 2012|By Mark Medina

As a man of many voices, it doesn't take long for Lakers center Dwight Howard to start imitating people. 

He already nailed Kobe Bryant in mid-August during his introductory press conference. Howard plans to mimic Pau Gasol and Metta World Peace, too. But Howard isn't limiting his voice talents to poking fun at teammates. He's carrying his gift into the cartoon world in an episode of Disney XD's "Kick Buttowski: Suburban Daredevil" that will air at 11 a.m. Saturday. 

In the episode Howard will provides the voice for daredevil Rock Callahan, who is Kick Buttowski's idol. For unknown reasons, Callahan plays the fictional Buttowski in a movie. To add to the weirdness, Buttowski battles a villain named The Dark One voiced by "Around the Horn's" Tony Reali.

This episode may not make much sense to anyone older than 10. But it sounds like it fits Howard's playful personality well. It also gives him a chance to further perfect his imitations, since that's totally going to determine whether the Lakers win a championship next season.
