Although not present as himself on-screen, Jason lent his voice to one of the main characters in the story. He had his dry wit and humor perfectly delivered to the role of Nick Wilde, a lovely con artist fox. Experiencing the voice acting process for the first time, Jason did face some challenges in the movie. However, he overcame it all for a reason that is way too personal for him.
While opening up to Good Morning America, Jason revealed his call for collaborating with Disney for the first time. The star confessed that although he is not a great fan of the genre, he, however, watches it for his two little daughters. “I see mostly these kinds of movies because I have two little girls, nine and four (their ages),” affirmed the star. Hence, as his daughters love to watch Disney movies as such, he “wanted to work in one.”
