Zachary Quinto and Khary Payton are set to voice in Amazon’s upcoming animated series “Invincible” based on the comic book by “The Walking Dead” creator Robert Kirkman.
The two are joining a star-studded voice cast that already includes Steven Yeun, Seth Rogen, Zazie Beetz, Mark Hamill, J.K. Simmons, Sandra Oh, Gillian Jacobs, Chris Diamantopolous, Grey Griffin, Jason Mantzoukas, Walton Goggins, Andrew Rannels and Kevin Michael Richardson.
The news was announced by Robert Kirkman during a panel on Saturday at SkyBound Xpo.
“Invincible” follows the adventures of 17-year-old Mark Grayson (Steven Yeun), a.k.a. Invincible, the son of the most powerful superhero on Earth, Omni-Man (J.K. Simmons), who develops his own powers and takes on a mission to save humankind. But as Mark develops powers of his own, he discovers that his dad’s legacy may not be as heroic as it seems. Quinto is set to voice Robot, one of Grayson’s superhero allies, and Payton will play Black Samson, a member of superhero alliance called the Guardians of the Globe.
Khary Payton currently plays Ezekiel in “The Walking Dead” and already has good experience in voice acting.

Quinto is also voicing Lex Luthor in Superman: Man of Tomorrow, which is releasing next month on VOD.
