Bayern Munich star features in Monsters University

Published 2 Comments

Manuel Neuer has established himself as arguably the most accomplished goalkeeper in the world following his transfer to Bayern Munich, where he became a European champion for the first time last month.

Repelling the ball from the Bayern Munich net, however, is not the only string to the bow of the Germany international, with Neuer also proving he is a competent voice actor, as well as a gifted goalie.

Neuer will become a film star of sorts this summer after lending his voice to a character in Disney Pixar's upcoming movie Die Monster Uni - the German language version of Monsters University.

The film is a prequel to the 2001 smash-hit Monsters Inc, and Neuer takes on the role of 'Frightening' Frank McCay, voiced by star of The Office John Krasinski in the original English language version.

Take a look at Neuer in action in the video below, and let us know your favourite instances where sports stars have appeared in movies...
