Furthering his venture into the world of animated characters, it was announced in September 2013 that Rupert would voice the lead character, Amadeo, in Juan Jose Campanella's animated feature Foosball.
Amadeo is described as a "shy table soccer genius" whose foosball figures come to life, helping him save his town and childhood sweetheart from the evil wrath of a superstar soccer player.
The film made it's debut at the 2013 San Sebastián film festival, receiving a warm reception from fans and critics alike. With an initial release in the U.K., "Foosball" will premiere at the London Film Festival on October 19th, 2013.
It will be released in the UK on August 8, 2014 with its new title: The Unbeatables.
