Former Sex Pistols frontman Johnny Rotten is to voice a “power hungry” mutant pig in the cartoon series Rise Of The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

Sky News reports that the singer, whose real name John Lydon, will play Meat Sweats in the Nickelodeon series that airs in September on Channel 5 and Nicktoons.

A trailer for the animated series was unveiled at the San Diego Comic-Con last Thuraday (July 19).

Lydon’s role in the series was announced at the event along with American wrestler John Cena’s role: villain called Baron Draxum.

Game of Thrones’ Lena Headey will voice a huge spider mutant called Big Mama.

Actor and comedian Rhys Darby plays a mutant magician hippo named Hypno-Potamus.

Rise Of The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is the fourth animated version to be produced based on the comics and 1980s cartoon about the crime-fighting New York turtles.

The show, as Deadline reports, is one of five renewed series by Nickelodeon, including Knight Squad, The Dude Perfect Show, Hunter Street, and Henry Danger.
