What's the least suave bird? What ranks at the bottom on a scale of 1 to Sly Bird? If you answered pigeon, we can't argue. They are bumbling, they are grey, they are everywhere. They're the drunken bro wearing shorts after 6 p.m. like that's acceptable of the bird world.
Pigeons are good for one thing, though. If you're looking to really highlight the insane gulf of charm between a smooth-talking super-spy played by Will Smith and a bird, you can't pick a better species.
In the new Fox Family movie Spies in Disguise, that's exactly what happens. Smith's secret agent Lance Sterling is transformed into a pigeon by his awkward kitchen Q, Walter Beckett. Beckett's reasoning is fairly solid, given that Sterling wants to go undetected.
"Pigeons are everywhere and nobody notices them. It's the perfect form a spy can take!" he says in the trailer.
As we've previously reported, the movie has a ton of names attached. Disguise will feature the voices of DJ Khaled, Rashida Jones, Tom Holland (of "one of the 30 Spidermen" fame), Karen Gillan (Amy Pond from Doctor Who), and Masi Oka (Heroes).
The movie is based on a short called Pigeon: Impossible, which you can check out below.
Both Jones and Smith have been insanely busy recently, even by A-List standards. When Smith isn't busy reminding us all why we have Instagram, he's working on the long-awaited third movie in the Bad Boys series. Jones, for her part, just signed on to the Amy Poehler-led Fox animated series Duncanville.
