It's easy to forget that The Fairly OddParents have been on the air for ten years now, and to celebrate this impressive run, Nickelodeon is producing a live action, made for TV movie about Timmy Turner.
Of note is actor Daran Norris (Veronica Mars, Team America), who voices Cosmo and Mr. Turner in the series, and will be portraying the live action Mr. Turner in the movie. In speaking with Daran about the role, he mentioned something interesting. This may be the first time that an actor has originated an animated character and ALSO played a live action version of that same character.
I'm racking my brain trying to think of another time that might have happened.
Daran is a pal of mine, and was even kind enough to join us on Movies You May Have Missed for our one year anniversary episode. Fairly OddParents has had an incredible run, and I'm very excited for my friend's success!
