Hardwell Lends His Voice to Animated Character in Feature Film

Hardwell and his dog, Jager.

When you reach the pinnacle of DJ stardom for 2 years in a row, what do you do next? Hardwell has taken his platform to help charitable causes, putting on a performance at the UN headquarters. He’s also stepping outside the music world and into the animated one as he landed a role in the Dutch version of The Secret Life of Pets. While the English version features actors like Kevin Hart and Ellie Kemper, the Dutch feel that Hardwell is that caliber of celebrity in their country.

The film hits theaters July 8 and Hardwell will lend his voice to the pug character named Mel. This is really the perfect fit since Hardwell has his own pug, aptly named Jager. Check out the recording sessions in the video below and get ready for Hardwell to take the animated movie stage next month.
