Space Ghost Unretires to Interview 'Avatar' Star

Adult Swim animated host Space Ghost will interview a star of James Cameron's Avatar to promote the upcoming film.

Starting tonight (Dec. 7), Adult Swim will drive viewers to tune in on Sunday night, Dec. 13, at midnight to watch Space Ghost's interview with Zoë Saldana, who plays the lead female character, Neytiri.

The tune-in messaging and 60-second interview will be sponsored by 20th Century Fox and focus on messaging for the film.

During its time on the Cartoon Network and later Adult Swim airwaves, Space Ghost Coast to Coast, a mix of comedy, music and talk, featured cape-to-heart talks with Michael Stipe, Carol Channing, Thom Yorke and a galaxy of other guests. The show and its fearless host retired from Adult Swim late night in 2004.

The new content developed to promote Avatar will feature George Lowe, the original voice for Space Ghost.

James Cameron's Avatar opens in theaters worldwide Dec. 18.
