Hey, if you can't get Idris Elba, bring on some Miami Heat! NBA superstar and Olympic gold medalist Chris Bosh will voice the role of Heimdall — the all-seeing, all-knowing Asgardian gatekeeper played by Elba in the Thor flicks — on Disney XD's Marvel's Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H. (Sunday, Feb. 23, 8am/7c).
The plot finds Heimdall and Thor battling the mighty Hulks until the fate of the nine realms forces them to set aside their differences and join forces again über-villain Malekith and his wicked elves. "Marvel was great to work with and I was honored to voice Heimdall," says Bosh. "I enjoyed the Hulk as a kid and am excited for kids' reaction to the episode."
Adds Marvel animation v.p. Stephen Wacker: "We were thrilled that Chris agreed to lend his voice to one of the biggest and bravest warriors of Asgard. We hope fans will enjoy this fun episode as Chris brings the heat to Team Green."
