Watch Drake Voice Ethan as He Makes a Date in ‘Ice Age 4′

20th Century Fox

When Drake isn’t singing or warring with Chris Brown, he has a fledgling career as a voiceover artist. And in a new clip from ‘Ice Age 4: Continental Drift,’ you’ll see the star try to get bizzy with a wooly mammoth. (And no, that’s not a metaphor.)

The voiceover gig isn’t Drake’s first acting job — fans will recall he once played Jimmy Brooks in ‘Degrassi: The Next Generation,’ and spent part of the stint in a wheelchair after his character was shot. But as he told The Boombox, even that experience didn’t quite prepare him for the role of Ethan in ‘Ice Age.’

“You have to realize that [the viewers are] not going to see your face,” he said of voicing Ethan. “So that’s something to really digest when you first step in this studio … ‘OK, I have to go above and beyond what I think is normal. And what I think is good, and I’ve gotta give it a little extra.'”

So what type of guy is Ethan? “He’s a young, strapping, handsome jock,” Drake reveals. “He’s really good at turtle football. He’s very popular. He catches the eye of Peaches.”

Peaches is played by actress Keke Palmer, who describes her as a “spunky mammoth” with eyes for Ethan. “She’s very animated,” Keke says. “She’s just discovering boys and she’s just ready to be her own person.”
