SDCC ’09: ‘The Goon’ Animated Feature Adds Two

Quint over at Aint it Cool News broke the news this weekend on the first voice casting for The Goon. Creator Eric Powell tells the site that “The Goon is going to be Clancy Brown… The Kurgan!…And Frankie is going to be none other than Paul Giamatti.” I’ve never read “The Goon”, but I picked up a few TPBs to give it a go, the “Metalocalypse/The Goon” one shot was pretty incredible. Those unfamiliar with “Goon” (like me), the story is about the adventures of the Goon, a muscle-bound brawler who claims to be the primary enforcer for the feared mobster Labrazio. The Goon (and his sidekick Franky) often get tied up in other machinations, often in relation to the evil zombie gangs under the command of the Nameless Zombie Priest.
