Tennis star Williams to voice animated queen

Associated Press
LOS ANGELES - Serena Williams often refers to herself as a princess. Now, she's getting a promotion.
The Australian Open tennis champion has lent her voice to an episode of the animated children's show "Loonatics Unleashed," airing Feb. 17 on The CW network.
Williams voices Queen Athena, who presides over an island colony of beautiful, powerful women with devious plans for the planet and its men.

"The character was described as being tall, strong, beautiful, so I guess that's how I got the role," Williams said, laughing. "I liked bringing my own character to the role. I've always thought of myself as a princess, but Athena is a queen. So I had to work it a little."

Williams has guest-starred on such series as "ER," "The Division," "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" and "My Wife and Kids."

Just something I noticed:

Isn't it interesting that when we try to justify lies as not that bad, we call them "white" ? Hmmmmm...

Anyway, I say good for Serena...unless it distracts her from tennis.
