Qusai will voice the character of Lance Sterling, who is played by Will Smith in the original version of the film, with Abirached joining in a supporting role that will give Arab audiences the opportunity to listen to the film in their native language.

 

 

“As soon as I was approached to voice the character played by Will Smith in the original version, I felt an immediate connection. Lance Sterling is an incredible character with humor and wit and I really wanted to do the role justice,” Qusai said.
