Neil deGrasse Tyson Takes up Voice-Acting…as a Cartoon Pig

Yeah, I can buy – JUST – the notion that you’re only doing Cosmos to educate people, and not in any way because being a TV star is fun. But once you start voicing a talking pig on Gravity Falls, it’s time to admit that you love performing. Because all the available evidence suggests it, and that’s, like, science.
