The Blues Brothers star Aykroyd actively went after the role of Yogi after hearing news a film was being planned.

He tells USA Today, "I called my agent and said I would love to be a part of this, because it's a part of me, all those voices."

The actor confesses he was a huge fan of the animated bear when he was a child, and director Eric Brevig admits he was stunned by Timberlake's spot-on Boo Boo impression.

He says, "He used to imitate cartoon characters when he was younger."
