Iggy Pop Tapped For Role In Once Upon A Time In Wonderland

Iggy Pop has signed on to contribute his voice to the upcoming animated series Once Upon a Time In Wonderland. The cartoon airs on ABC, and features Iggy playing the role of a caterpillar.

Iggy was not, however, the first rocker considered for the role. The Who's fronter Roger Daltrey was initially considered for the role but backed out do to scheduling conflicts.

Though the career move may come as a surprise to some fans, Iggy recently explained to Classic Rock magazine that he actively works to avoid industry labels:

"[Industry suits] have to think in boxes. They have to have a place to put me to reference the whole thing. And they think they have to explain that to an audience of people who are similarly lacking in intelligence or education. So you get that. It's okay. But it's tedious."

Once Upon a Time In Wonderland debuts October 10 at 8 pm.
