Andre 3000 Gets Animated
OUTKAST singer ANDRE 3000 will star in an animated series about a music superstar-turned-teacher for the US Cartoon Network. The singer - real name ANDRE BENJAMIN - has created CLASS OF 3000, featuring a group of misfit kids at a music school and a teacher, SUNNY BRIDGES, who walked away from a successful music career. Benjamin will provide the voice of Bridges in the show, which is based on his childhood in Atlanta, Georgia. The series, which debuts in November (06), will feature celebrity guests including GWEN STEFANI and SNOOP DOGG. Benjamin explains, "It'll have serious hardcore music. It won't sound like (typical) Saturday morning (cartoons). It'll be jamming."
