According to Variety, the celebrated actor will lend his pipes to an animated film for the first time ever — "The Guardians" — due in 2012 from Dreamworks Animation.

"The Guardians" will offer a new twist to several characters from folklore including the Tooth Fairy, the Easter Bunny, the Sandman, Santa and Jack Frost. Leo will voice the Jack Frost character, the paper reported.
