MTV News has exclusively learned that the voice actor behind “This Is U” is preparing to voice the voice of the iconic Big Bang Theory character Professor Frink.
Mark Wahlberg is in talks to voice Professor Frinks character on the new Netflix comedy series “Dirty Dance,” which has been in development at Netflix for a few years.
Wahlbiewers character, Professor Frinky, is a nerd who is trying to be popular with girls while also keeping the secrets that would make him a big fan of the Big Bang theory.
The actor recently told the Huffington Post that he is in discussions with Netflix to voice his character.
“The Big Bang is one of the most popular shows on television, so it’s not something I want to miss out on,” Wahlbin said.
“Dirty Dancer,” which is being directed by Judd Apatow, is slated to premiere in 2018.
Wampanoag, whose other credits include “The Longest Yard,” “The Office,” “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend,” and “The Muppets,” also voiced the character in “The Simpsons” animated series.
In addition to “Dance,” Wampaners character also appears in “Hangover,” “Parks and Recreation,” “Superstore,” and more.
