Cartoon Network Announces "IGPX" Voice Cast
Haley Joel Osment will voice Takeshi Jinno, the lead character in IGPX, Toonami’s upcoming original series, Cartoon Network said today. Osment will be joined by Michelle Rodriguez, Mark Hamill and Lance Henriksen.
The series is set in the year 2048, when “Immortal Grand Prix,” in which two teams of three mechs race at speeds greater than 350 mph on a sixty-mile track, has become the world’s most popular sport. The series is a coproduction of Cartoon Network and Production I.G. and will blend Western storytelling with anime stylings using traditional and CG work. Bandai Entertainment will serve as IGPX licensing partner.
Five five-minute IGPX shorts aired on Cartoon Network in 2003. The new series will premiere during Toonami on Saturday, November 5, at 10:30pm (ET/PT).
