Dusty, the small-town crop-duster from DisneyToon Studios' upcoming feature "Planes," has found his voice: Emmy Award-winning actor Jon Cryer. "Planes," an all-new, CG-animated comedy action adventure, will be released in theaters on August 9, 2013, Disney announced today.
"We are incredibly excited to have Jon Cryer on board as the voice of Dusty," said John Lasseter, chief creative officer for Walt Disney and Pixar Animation Studios. "Jon brings so much comedy and believability to this character who dreams of soaring alongside his heroes in theWings Around the Globe? Rally." "Planes? is a wonderful story that takes audiences on a great ride and Jon brings so much heart to the film."
Cryer has starred in the hit CBS series "Two and a Half Men" for seven years, winning an Emmy in 2003 for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series. His credits also include films like "Due Date," "Hot Shots" and "Pretty in Pink." Cryer recently performed in the New York Philharmonic's star-studded COMPANY concert.
Dusty lives in the small town of Propwash Junction, and the single-prop agriculture plane could not be further from the lean, mean, trophy-winning machines he idolizes - and his co-workers remind him constantly. His mentor Skipper is convinced that Dusty has the engine to compete with the best, and helps encourage him to pursue his lifelong dreams. But if Dusty wants to make his dreams a reality, he?ll need to push himself further than he ever imagined. With the help and support of a crew of all-new and hilarious characters, Dusty wings his way into the biggest challenge of his life.
"Planes," set to introduce audiences to an entirely new and hilarious crew of daredevils from every corner of the globe, draws inspiration from the immensely popular world of Disney•Pixar?s "Cars." "Planes" is created, written and produced by DisneyToon Studios under the creative leadership of John Lasseter and directed by Emmy nominated Klay Hall.
