Jonathan Frakes just landed his latest gig. In news that broke late last month, Frakes, best known as Star Trek: The Next Generation's Riker and also as the director of many Trek episodes and the films Star Trek: First Contact and Star Trek: Insurrection, will do the talking for J'Son, king of the Spartax galactic empire and father of Peter Quill/Star-Lord (Will Friedle) on the animated show Guardians of the Galaxy. Frakes will make his first appearance in the Disney XD series on March 13, in an episode in which Star-Lord goes missing and the other Guardians set off to save him.

"I'm thrilled to be part of another great sci-fi franchise." Frakes told USA Today. "And I'm also lucky that the character of J'Son just happens to sound like me."

Frakes is no stranger to voiceover work. His previous credits include Gargoyles, Family Guy, Adventure Time, The Super Hero Squad Show, Futurama and several Star Trek video games.
