Yup, that’s right. The Filipino-Canadian voice actor will be cracking jokes as the iconic cartoon character Bugs Bunny in the upcoming Space Jam: A New Legacy.



Let’s throw it back a bit for more context. The original Space Jam was an iconic film for ’90s kids because it starred equally iconic basketball superstar Michael Jordan bro-ing it out with famous Looney Tunes characters.

The official Space Jam website is also known for being one of the last relics of ’90s era Internet so we’re glad that it’s still up and running.

 

Now, the sequel is going to star another famous baller, LeBron James.

He has been voicing the wisecracking rabbit for the latest Looney Tune series. And for someone like Eric Bauza, who grew up with Bugs Bunny and the gang, he is living the dream.

Whoa! We bet that he could record an entire episode by himself. Talk about a 

one-man team.
