As he prepares to welcome twin daughters this summer, award-winning stage and screen actor Matthew Broderick is putting a new spin on Fatherâ€™s Day for his son!! Heâ€™s giving 6-year-old son James Wilkie the best gift of all â€“ guest starring in one of his favorite shows, Cyberchase â€“ the Emmy Award-winning animated math series.
“My son loves Cyberchase, so I was happy to lend my voice to the show,” said Matthew Broderick. “The best part is that I haven’t told him I did it; I’m waiting to surprise him when we watch the episode together. I’m sure he’ll be more impressed by it than any other work I’ve done!”
