Danny De Vito Typecast Again, As The Lorax

Danny De Vito Typecast Again, As The LoraxHe's spent his years playing squat, bald, hairy characters. You'd have thought that CGI animation may have given Danny De Vito a new lease on life with a wider ranger of characters.

You'd have thought wrong.

USA Today report that De Vito has been cast as the voice of Dr Seuss' The Lorax, in a new production from Illumination Entertainment, the same team who created Despicable Me and Horton Hears a Who.

The Daily Show's Ed Helms will play antagonist The Once-ler in this foreste-uprooting environmental tale. And Zac Efron plays the boy Ted who wants to disover how the world went so wrong. Betty White will play his grandmother.
