Jack Black = Claptrap
Jack Black will take on the role of claptrap. He will bring this iconic character to life. The movie studio said that this choice was a no brainer. They couldn’t think of anyone else doing the voice of claptrap. Well, my thoughts would go to the current voice actor of claptrap. Jim Foronda is a very talented voice actor. However, movie studios want to attach big Hollywood stars to their movie to appeal to their audience.
I am so excited to reunite with Jack, this time in the recording booth. Claptrap is the funniest character in the game, and Jack is perfect to bring him to the big screen. – Elie Roth, Director Borderlands Movie
I’m wondering if they will do a full CG character or actually have an onset robot with an animatronics team onset.
