Announcing the news on Twitter, Gino, 44 wrote: "Ciao guys, I am super excited to announce my cameo role in the new Disney Pixar film Luca. Meet Eugenio The Priest!

"It's an honour to join the world of Disney, especially in a film that reminds me of my summers in Italy."

And Gino also spoke about the challenges of working in the movie industry, comparing it to his usual gig of cooking up delicious food for guests.

"I think it's easier to cook for a wedding of 50 people than do five lines on a movie like this," he said.

"But it's good. Happy. Super happy."

The official synopsis explains: "Set in a beautiful seaside town on the Italian Riviera, Disney and Pixar's original feature film Luca is a coming-of-age story about one young boy experiencing an unforgettable summer filled with gelato, pasta and endless scooter rides.

"... But all the fun is threatened by a deeply-held secret: they are sea monsters from another world just below the water's surface."

Also starring in the movie is Jacob Tremblay, Jack Dylan Grazer and Maya Rudolph.
