After a long time of hearing absolutely nothing about the voice of Maugrim, some people were beginning to wonder if a voice for Maugrim had even been cast. Yesterday, October 25, 2005, The Official Illustrated Movie Companion for Narnia by Perry Moore was released in stores everywhere. In this book there is an interview between Perry Moore and Andrew Adamson about the casting for this movie. The following question was asked:

PM: Tell us about Michael Madsen as Maugrim, the Wolf Captain of the White Witch’s secret police.
AA: Michael was a late addition. Our producer, Mark Johnson, brought up Michael because he’d worked with him before. I don’t know why he hadn’t occurred to us earlier. Again, Mark just called him up and said, “I’m doing this film, are you interested?” and he said, “Sure,” and showed up and did it. He was great. He has this fantastic voice, a good bad guy. He was really funny. I started showing him some tapes and he’s like, “I get it, I’m a wolf.”

Madsen has appeared in Thelma & Louise, Reservoir Dogs, Free Willy and Kill Bill Vol. 1 & 2. Click here to see his IMDb listing.
