Billy Dee Williams to Play Role in Annoying Orange TV Show

By: Dave Bouressa

“The Annoying Orange”, the viral Youtube show that just recently passed it’s one billionth view, makes it’s TV debut on May 28th 2012 on Cartoon Network. The show will star such popular youtube “celebrities” as Dane “Daneboe” Boedigheimer, Kevin Brueck, Robert “Bobjenz” Jennings, Justine “Ijustine” Ezarik, and Toby “Tubuscus” Turner. However, the facebook fanpage for The Annoying Orange recently revealed a celebrity voice that will be starring in the show.

As of now, the character is unknown, but it is verification that Billy Dee Williams will be on the show. However, judging from the list of characters given, and due to the fact that mouth tracking is used to create the characters, and mustaches are hard to edit out, it would be surprising if he weren’t playing Samuel Jackfruit-however, there is always the chance he shaved for the role. The Annoying Orange has made it a point in its 3-year run to have celebrity guests in each show to star along side it’s main cast of Daneboe, Bobjenz, Kevin Brueck, and iJustine. These celebrities usually range from fellow youtubers, to actual Hollywood celebrities such as John Leguizamo and James Caan. Billy Dee Williams is also not the only Star Wars name said to appear in this show. It has been rumored that Dee Bradley Baker will also make an appearance in the series. Whether or not Baker’s role is a cameo or full cast role is still undetermined-the same going for Williams’ role- but judging from both of their respective voice acting careers, it is safe to assume that Baker will be playing a fairly frequent role, while Williams’ will be making a few cameos.

The series will be making a sneak preview of the series on Monday, May 28th on Cartoon Network at 8:30/ 7:30 Central.
