LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Ricky Gervais has signed on to voice a robot spy dog, Argonaut, in Dimension Films' upcoming "Spy Kids: All the Time in the World."

The funnyman joins Jessica Alba (Marissa Cortez Wilson), Jeremy Piven (Timekeeper), Antonio Banderas (Gergorio Cortez) and Joel McHale (Wilbur Wilson) for the franchise's fourth installment.

"Not only am I lending my voice to 'Spy Kids,' but they can keep it. I'm sick of it," Gervais said in a statement.

The Robert Rodriguez 3D film is scheduled to be released on August 19.

No stranger to voice-work, Gervais has done work on "SpongeBob SquarePants" and "The Simpsons," among numerous other projects.
