FEATURE-LENGTH FILM “TOM AND JERRY”

Reggaeton legend, rapper, singer, songwriter, and actor NICKY JAM is expanding his repertoire as a very important addition to Warner Bros. Pictures’ new animated and live action film Tom & Jerry. NICKY will be playing “Butch,” a tough alley cat that will make Tom and Jerry’s adventure in New York City all the more exciting.


As “Butch,NICKY faced a new challenge: voice acting. He managed to dominate the nuances of the craft, delivering a masterful performance worthy of a total pro, that he’s excited for his kids to watch and enjoy just as much as he enjoyed this role.


“I remember watching the Tom & Jerry cartoons as a little kid, and never in a million years did I think I’d be a part of it in a new, reimagined adventure taking place in this day and age. I’m very excited for my kids to watch this movie too, knowing their dad had a part in this,” NICKY JAM said about his role in the film. Check out this clip featuring yours truly, and make sure to catch the movie in theaters and streaming exclusively on HBO Max starting on February 26.

He’s also the winner of 20 Latin Billboard Awards, 3 Latin AMAs, and 1 Latin Grammy — just to mention a few.


In the past few years, NICKY JAM has been quietly making his way into acting, with a memorable performance in his biographical series Nicky Jam: El Ganador, and supporting roles in different motion pictures.




ABOUT THE MOVIE

One of the most beloved rivalries in history is reignited when Jerry moves into New York City’s finest hotel on the eve of “the wedding of the century,” forcing the event’s desperate planner, Kayla, to hire Tom to get rid of him, in director Tim Story’s “Tom and Jerry.”


The ensuing cat and mouse battle threatens to destroy her career, the wedding and possibly the hotel itself. But soon, an even bigger problem arises: a diabolically ambitious staffer conspiring against all three of them.

An eye-popping blend of classic animation and live action, Tom and Jerry’s new adventure stakes new ground for the iconic characters and forces them to do the unthinkable… work together to save the day.
