From radio to the big screen.

We've all had a laugh listening to him on the radio with Andy Lee, but Hamish Blake is now making the big move...to the big screen.

The father-of-two is set to star as Pyro in the upcoming animated Wreck-It Ralph sequel, Ralph Breaks The Internet and took to Instagram to announce his happy news.

"Honestly, I'm so pumped to be in this, it's a dream come true and I wanted to keep it a secret till my wife saw it in cinemas but honestly, look at that poster, she was always going to find out!!" the comedian wrote in his caption.

He may only appear in four scenes, but the 36 year-old comedian joked that his role is about quality, not quantity.

"It was a massive buzz to be asked to be part of this," the Australian comedian said in a statement. "I loved the first movie. Whilst I only have a few lines in the film, I'm positive movie-goers will agree they are the heart and soul of the movie."

Some of Hamish's A-list co-stars include John C Reilly and Sarah Silverman who will reprise their roles from the first movie, as well as Wonder Woman's Gal Gadot and The Late Late Show host, James Corden.

The film will be released on Boxing Day this year, so we have no doubt he will take his two little ones, Sonny, four, and Rudy, one.

Anyone for ice cream?

Hamish and wife Zoe Foster Blake have recently been holidaying with their adorable family around Europe and the US to escape that Southern Hemisphere winter and celebrate little Rudy's first birthday.

When they get back to Aussie shores though, Hamish will no doubt be busy preparing for the second season of True Story With Hamish & Andy along with his partner in crime, Andy Lee.

Speaking about living up to the success of the first season, Andy told TV WEEK, "We don't feel the [TV] ratings pressure, but we certainly feel pressure for everyone who has put so much effort into it," Andy, 37, admits.

"We'd like it to go well and be as good as possible."
