British actor Lee Evans is thrilled he's won a role opposite ROBBIE WILLIAMS, Kylie Minogue and Bill Nighy in the movie remake of children's TV series The Magic Roundabout.

Evans, who is currently starring in hit London musical The Producers, will provide the voice for a new character described as "the plucky and courageous Train," who befriends Williams' dopey dog character DOUGAL.

Evans says, "It's really exciting to be involved in this project. The Magic Roundabout has become something of a national treasure. Now we can pass this on to the next generation to enjoy."

The movie - which also stars Joanna Lumley, SIR Ian McKellen and RAY WINSTONE - will hit cinema screens in February (05).
