Serafinowicz to play McCartney in Yellow Submarine remake
Actor Peter Serafinowicz's versatile vocal skills have landed him another blockbuster role, 10 years after he voiced Star Wars baddie Darth Maul - he's been hired to play Sir Paul McCartney in a remake of Beatles movie Yellow Submarine.
The comedian only got to utter a few lines in the Star Wars prequels, but his Hollywood career has since taken off, with roles in Run Fatboy Run and Couples Retreat.
And now Liverpool-native Serafinowicz has been recruited to Robert Zemeckis' forthcoming animated remake of the 1968 film.
The soundtrack will be performed by Beatles tribute band The Fab Four.
