TOMMY LEE Gets Animated
According to Variety, MÖTLEY CRÜE drummer Tommy Lee will lend his voice to "The Life and Times of Jimmy Jaxx", an animated half-hour loosely based on his own life. Smart Entertainment ("Blades of Glory") is behind the project, currently in the early stages of development at Fox.
"I've always loved the animated world," Lee said. "How fun and kooky is this gonna be, to combine some real-life experiences with some seriously over-the-top humor."
The project revolves around a rocker who attempts to balance his crazy lifestyle on the road with a calmer existence at home. The character is distracted, however, by his tattoos — which come to life and are constantly trying to lead him down the wrong path.
