Ariana Grande Ditches The Cat Ears To Join The Cast Of 'Underdogs'

Flawless wordplay. The film also stars Nicholas Hoult and Katie Holmes.

Ariana Grande is heading to the silver screen -- well, at least her voice is.

On Tuesday (October 14), it was announced that the "Love Me Harder" singer had been cast in the upcoming English-language version of the computer-animated Argentine film "Underdogs." Joining her are Matthew Morrison (a.k.a. Mr. Schue from "Glee"), Nicholas Hoult of "Skins" fame and the immortal Josephine Potter Katie Holmes.

Here's Ariana's character, Laura.

The English version of the Juan José Campanella picture will also feature the voices of John Leguizamo, Eugenio Derbez, Taran Killam, Bobby Moynihan and Chazz Palminteri.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the film, which was originally released en Español as "Metegol" in 2013: "centers on a shy but talented foosball player (Morrison) who must defend his town and the girl he loves, Laura (Grande), from [the] nefarious soccer player Ace (Hoult)." His secret weapon? Figures on his foosball table that magically come to life.

Completely here for the animated foosball movie of our generation. "Underdogs" is expected to hit theaters on April 10, 2015.
