GN Version 5.0

This week has brought us a ton of casting information on the upcoming Borderlands movie, and now another A-lister has been added to the film.

We now know that Claptrap is going to appear in the adapation, and Jack Black will be lending his voice to the character. In the games, Claptrap is known for its overenthusiastic personality, so Black should be able to handle the role quite well.

Jim Foronda, the voice actor for Claptrap in the games, took to Twitter to share his thoughts on Black landing the gig.

I can't lie— It's a crushing disappointment. I'd thought about possibly being in the movie for years. I love Borderlands. I love Claptrap. It's absolute joy to be his voice for the games. Congratulations, Jack Black, I know you must love him too. Please take good care of him.
