Mila Kunis may have the looks and talent of a live-action actress, but that's not her only skill. Overt the last 13 years Kunis has been developing her skills as a voice actor, providing the vocal chords for Meg Griffin and various other characters on Family Guy, as well as other programs like Robot Chicken. That said, she has never lent her voice to a character in a feature film. That changes today.
Deadline reports that Mila Kunis has signed on to voice a character in Hell & Back. The project, directed by Tommy Gianas and Ross Shuman, is described as an R-rated stop-motion animated comedy. The story is about a couple of friends who decide to go on a rescue mission to hell to bring back one of their own. Kunis is just the latest actor to join the film, which as Nick Swardson, TJ Miller, Rob Riggle, Brian Posehn and Kumail Najiani all already on-board (Swardson and Miller will voice the two leads). The movie is being made by ShadowMachine Productions, which is the same company behind the aforementioned Robot Chicken.
In the movie, Kunis will voice a half-human/half-demon who is described as being "the toughest rogue demon in Hell." The actress has been impressively busy as of late, wrapping up production on films like Seth MacFarlane's Ted (due out in theaters on July 13th), Sam Raimi's Oz: The Great And Powerful (arriving March 8, 2013), and the C.K. Williams biopic Tar (which doesn't currently have a release date).
