Superstar actors Dennis Hopper and Billy Bob Thornton are excited about their latest project: voice work for Nintendo Wii's just-released 'Deadly Creatures.'

The action game lets players become a scorpion or a tarantula and fight against other bugs and reptiles.

The 72 year-old Hopper and 53 year-old Thornton play two humans, Wade and George Struggs, who are looking for Civil War gold in the desert and cross paths with the critters throughout the game.

"So he (Struggs) convinces Wade to go out with him with his half-map, out into the desert where there are all these incredible creatures," Hopper told "kotaku.com." "Scorpions and tarantulas and an underworld constantly bubbling up and fighting with each other, while they're on the top doing pretty much the same.

"You have to get the game to be able to understand how it all comes together."

"Well, the main thing that surprised me about 'Deadly Creatures' is the way it looks, cause my kids play videogames," said Thornton. "This one is kind of like watching a movie in a lot of ways."
