J.K. Simmons will voice for Kai. The actor had been praised for his work in “Whiplash”- a terrifying jazz instructor.
In an interview with US Today, he said, “I’ve played a variety of bad-assess in my career. I do like to mix it up. I like being a character actor playing different kinds of guys. Or now, different kinds of beasts.”
Kai, the villain of “Kung Fu Panda 3,” will be more furious, bigger and threatening as compared to all the antagonists in the previous series of the movie. Wearing a leather armor, Kai will be seen using two jade swords, and bear large horns.
