Fishburne voices Surfer

Actor joins 'Fantastic Four' sequel

Laurence Fishburne is waxing his board for sequel “Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer.”

Actor will voice the role of the Silver Surfer in the summer tentpole, which 20th Century Fox bows June 15.

Internet buzz had suggested that Fishburne was up to voice the role of the evil Galactus, but the studio hasn’t decided whether Galactus will even speak. Silver Surfer, who rides his surfboard through space, is the herald for the planet-destroying Galactus.

Fishburne, who has strong credibility among fanboys for his role in the “Matrix” franchise, joined “Silver Surfer” this week.

Sequel reteams “Fantastic Four” director Tim Story with topliners Ioan Gruffudd as Reed Richards, Jessica Alba as Susan Storm, Chris Evans as Johnny Storm and Michael Chiklis as Ben Grimm.

Fishburne (“TMNT,” “Mission: Impossible 3”) stars in Robert Luketic’s upcoming “21.”

Fishburne is repped by Paradigm.
