Cars 2 includes a cameo from a Deadliest Catch boat, captain
One of Deadliest Catch’s boats and captains have a cameo appearance in Disney/Pixar’s Cars 2, the animated film that opens in theaters today.
The character is named Crabby, and it is a version of the Northwestern, voiced by the ship’s real-life captain, Sig Hansen. At the premiere of the movie, Sig Hansen said that the cameo came about when he met director John Lasseter at a fundraiser.
The resulting character has a Facebook fan page, and is featured at the start of one of the film’s trailers (below). If you just want to see the cameo, what appears to be the entire scene is also online.
