LOS ANGELES, April 27 (UPI) -- NBC's "My Name is Earl" star, Jason Lee, is getting ready to play another kind of "Underdog."

Lee has hopped aboard Disney's live-action/animated big screen version of the 1964 cartoon, "Underdog," Zap2it.com reported. He will voice the rhyming canine superhero, which will be animated.

In the original NBC cartoon, the voice of Shoeshine Boy/Underdog was provided by the late comedian Wally Cox.

"The Station Agent" star Peter Dinklage is the only other star named so far by the film's producers. He will portray the villainous Simon Bar Sinister.
