MATTHEW BRODERICK LENDS HIS VOICE TO "ADVENTURE TIME"

Special Episode Featuring Broderick as "The Dream Warrior" to Premiere Monday, September 3 at 7:30 p.m. ET/PT

Celebrated actor Matthew Broderick (Tower Heist, Bee Movie, Ferris Bueller's Day Off) will play "The Dream Warrior," a new character to be featured in an upcoming episode of Cartoon Network's hit animated series Adventure Time, the network announced today. The special episode, "Who Would Win," is slated to premiere on Monday, September 3 at 7:30 p.m. (ET/PT) on Cartoon Network.

Broderick's character, The Dream Warrior, is a used car salesman summoned by series protagonists Finn and Jake in a shared, extraordinary dream to offer advice on defeating a substantial rival. "I heard about Adventure Time because my son, James, loves it," says Broderick of the Cartoon Network series, "I like that it doesn't talk down to anybody."

Recently nominated for its third Primetime Emmy(R) Award for "Outstanding Short-format Animated Program" as well as a prestigious BAFTA (British Academy of Film and Television Arts) Award, Adventure Time has become a genuine ratings and pop culture phenomenon since its April 2010 debut. Throughout the second quarter of 2012, the series was the #1 program on Mondays with all boys on all TV, and #1 in its time period with all kids (2-11, 6-11, 9-14) (Nielsen Media Research). Adventure Time's current season also features guest voices by Donald Faison, George Takei, Erik Estrada, Andy Milonakis, Emo Phillips, Bobcat Goldthwait and Susie Essman.

Adventure Time introduces viewers to unlikely heroes Finn and Jake, buddies who traverse the mystical Land of Ooo and encounter its colorful inhabitants. The best of friends, our heroes always find themselves in the middle of heart-pounding escapades. Finn, a silly kid with an awesome hat and Jake, a brassy dog with a big kind heart, depend on each other through thick and thin. From the mind of first-time series creator Pendleton Ward and Cartoon Network Studios, Ooo is a land built for adventure.

Adventure Time, currently in its fourth season, airs Mondays at 7:30 p.m. (ET/PT) on Cartoon Network.
