Astin best known for his role in The Lord Of The Rings plays a novice, special agent panda on the Disney Channels new animated series, Special Agent Oso, debuting this Saturday (Apr. 4).
Astin says his daughters, who are 12, six, and three years old, are digging his latest gig and are finally interested in Dads career.
He explains, Theyve never been impressed by my acting before, but Oso caused an awakening for them. Theyve watched the show 100 times and are starting to watch more of my other stuff!
Astins daughters think Oso is so cool, they no longer mind when he has to leave for work, especially since his schedule still gives him time to make soccer practice and volunteer at their schools.
Hes excited to gain pre-school fans through the show and hopes theyre not disappointed when they meet him, like when Lord Of The Rings fans find out hes not actually a hobbit.
