Modern love got him to the church on time, but fatherly love gets him to the recording booth.
David Bowie has announced he has voiced a character who will appear on the hit animated kids' show SpongeBob SquarePants next year. The 59-year-old music legend plays the role of Lord Royal Highness for the Nickelodeon series.
Today Bowie blogged that, "I've hit the Holy Grail of animation gigs. Yesterday I got to be a character on...tan-tara...SpongeBob SquarePants. Oh Yeah!!"
Bowie has said before that his six-year-old daughter, Alexandria, is a huge fan of SpongeBob.
"We, the family, are thrilled," he wrote on his Web site. "Nothing else need happen this year, well, this week anyway."
Bowie has starred in a number of interesting films and TV projects. In 1986, he played Jareth the Goblin King in the puppet-filled movie Labyrinth, and in 1996's Basquiat he played the late Andy Warhol. Last year he played himself in the Ricky Gervais series Extras, and he'll next be seen as famed inventor Nikolai Tesla in the magician thriller The Prestige.
