Game of Thrones star signs up for Danger Mouse


Never mind the big Hollywood blockbusters and multi-million pound TV franchises: we've got a feeling that the new Danger Mouse is going to be the must-watch TV event of the end of the year.

The revived CBBC project has revealed yet another stellar casting move, with Game of Thrones star Lena Headey being revealed as the voice of Jeopardy Mouse. She plays the scheming Cersei Lannister in the hit HBO series, but is now swapping her robes for a supermouse costume.

She said: "I wanted to do it because it was pure nostalgia for me. I have children now and it's just a treat to be involved in something that you loved as a kid and be able to share it. Those moments as an actor that come along once in while are not to be missed."

In addition, chat show host John Oliver has been announced as the mad wolf scientist Dr Augustus P Crumhorn III, while it was also revealed at Comic-Con that the series will feature a cameo from Count Duckula. Can this get any better?

Oliver commented: "Danger Mouse was a significant part of my childhood. So to get a chance to do it is like getting a chance to step into your childhood, which is both a magical and a potentially hazardous thing. It will be awesome, I can't wait to see it, let alone hear myself in it."

Already announced are Alexander Armstrong as the voice of Danger Mouse (with the new look of the character revealed below), Kevin Eldon (of Big Train fame) as trusty sidekick Penfold, Stephen Fry as Danger Mouse's boss Colonel K and Come Dine With Me's sardonic Dave Lamb as the narrator.

Fifty two episodes are planned, beginning at the end of the year, and if they aren't all amazing, then we'll be astonished.
