Hugh Laurie Joins The LittleBigPlanet 3 Cast As Newton

Sony has announced the cast for LittleBigPlanet 3, and one of the big reveals is Hugh Laurie as the villain, Newton. This sees Hugh Laurie returning to working with his long term comedic partner, and friend Stephen Fry.  The duo first started working together in 1981 and had a long running show called a A Bit Of Fry & Laurie, as well as appearing in various series of Blackadder. It’s the first time since 2010 that the pair will be in the same project, though there are rumours they are working on something else too.


The rest of the LittleBigPlanet cast will include Nolan North, which isn’t a surprise since he is in everything, Peter Serafinowicz, Tara Strong, and Simon Greenall. It’s a pretty strong cast overall, and you’ll be able to experience their work in action from the 18th of November when LittleBigPlanet 3 releases on PS4 and PS3.
