Michael Keaton to voice Barbie’s boy toy in Toy Story 3

Michael Keaton has landed the role of Ken, Barbie’s boy toy, in “Toy Story 3.”


The film’s director Lee Unkrich broke the news Friday at Comic-Con during Disney’s animation panel.


Keaton was “born to voice Ken,” joked Unkrich, pictured, adding that it was the doll’s big-screen debut.


Pixar screened a scene from “Toy Story 3” in 3-D — the third movie concerns what happens to the toys when their owner, a now-grown Andy, leaves for college — as well as some “old reel footage” introducing groovy new cast member Ken.
