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.
