Dwight Howard promotes Disney cartoon at Comic-Con
July 27, 2011, 2:03 am
Orlando Magic center Dwight Howard was pelted with several questions from fans surrounding his free agency while on a panel for “Kick Buttowski,” the Disney XD animated series in which he voices the character of Rock Callahan. For the record, Howard said he’ll “never” play for the Heat and when asked about the Lakers he responded, “That’s everybody’s question. I am wearing purple … but that’s Rock’s outfit.”
Beyond those few free-agency questions, which Howard is asked all the time, it was a fun weekend for Howard, who continues to branch out further and further into the world of pop culture. He deepens his voice to play Rock Callahan in Kick Buttowski, which airs its second season this year. Callahan, a recurring character in the series, is modeled after Howard with big muscles and a fun-loving personality.
It was Howard’s first trip to Comic-Con, a setting where his he thrives interacting with fans. He’ll surely be back again in the future. Here are some more photos from his weekend.
