Justin Timberlake to lend vocals for ‘Yogi Bear’

London: Singer Justin Timberlake is delighted to be voicing cartoon character Boo-Boo in the forthcoming ‘Yogi Bear’ movie because he was a big fan of the original cartoon series.

The singer-and-actor is lending his voice to Boo-Boo in a forthcoming part-live action movie version of the hit cartoon and was delighted to be involved with a series he was such a fan of as a child, reports contactmusic.com.

"It`s pretty awesome. I used to watch the cartoon as a kid. Yogi Bear is an iconic Hanna Barbera cartoon. So it`s been a lot of fun," said Timberlake.

The 28-year-old star admits he tried to stay as faithful as possible to the original character when recording his voiceovers.
