Steve Aoki has been cast in the upcoming film Extinct, a quirky animated comedy set for a 2021 release.

Typically, Aoki has appeared throughout film and TV as himself, but for his next act the "Waste It On Me" producer will be voicing the fictitious character Vinny, a member of an extinct species called Flummels.


The film follows the turbulent story of a cast of furry prehistoric creatures with donut-like appearances. When two Flummels find a way to time travel into the present, and realize that their species has since gone extinct, they attempt to travel back in time and alter history in a last ditch effort to save their kin.
