Steve Buscemi is the latest star to lend his voice to animated 3D film Khumba.

The Boardwalk Empire actor has joined the cast of the film made by South Africa's Triggerfish Animation Studios.

He will voice a character alongside Liam Neeson, Laurence Fishburne, AnnaSophia Robb, Jake T Austin, Loretta Devine and Richard E Grant, Deadline reports.

The Good Wife's Anika Noni Rose has also signed up to voice a part.

Due out later this year, Khumba is the story of a zebra who only has stripes on half of his body and is blamed for a severe drought by his herd.

Legend has it that there's a magic waterhole where the first zebras gained their stripes, so he sets off to find it and end the drought.

Steve, 55, has three more comedies due out this year - The Incredible Burt Wonderstone, Grown Ups 2 and another animated film, Monsters University.

He previously voiced animated films including Hotel Transylvania, G-Force, Igor and Monsters, Inc.
