'Toy Story 3' Casting: Timothy Dalton Won't Be Evil This Time

Fixing the series' dearth of gentlemanly British characters, Timothy Dalton will be providing the voice of Mr. Pricklepants in Pixar's Toy Story 3. From Empire:

Dalton will voice Mr. Pricklepants, a hedgehog toy with thespian tendencies. How he fits into the story, we’re not sure (could he be the story’s villain?), but if Dalton is allowed to keep his accent, he will be the first Brit to grace the Toy Story franchise, unless you count Andi Peters’ cameo in Toy Story 2. But we don’t.

I'm just happy a man known for playing James Bond and other similarly dignified characters now has to add the role of "Mr. Pricklepants" to his IMDb page. The only thing that would be better is if we found a way to get Sean Connery to play a character called "Professor Sillybottom."
