| Filed under: Film FlickersSean PennBlake SheltonMaya RudolphBirdsJason SudeikisPeter Dinklage

no title

The upcoming film Angry Birds already boasts quite an impressive cast.

Jason Sudeikis, Peter Dinklage, Maya Rudolph, and Blake Shelton are just a few big names lending their voices to the feathered flick.

Now, it looks like yet another A-lister is flying into the coop!

It's been reported that Sean Penn has joined the cast of the animated film to play a large red bird named Terrence!

Don't expect to hear too much of the Oscar-winner's voice in the film based on the video game of the same name because Terrence only communicates through a series of grunts and growls.

Sounds like a pretty easy paycheck — the 55-year-old can literally do that in his sleep! LOLz

Even though we won't be hearing any riveting dialogue from Penn, we're sure he will grunt and groan with serious conviction!

Hear the actor's vocal samplings when Angry Birds hits theaters on May 20!
