The Boyzone singer will star alongside David Tennant, Rupert Grint and Jim Broadbent in Postman Pat: The Movie, and will provide the singing voice for the animated mailman.
Keating feels honoured to be offered the role, saying: "It's been a true honour to help bring Postman Pat's singing voice to life.
"I grew up watching Pat and all the great characters ... so I can't wait to take my kids along to see them all on the big screen."
The show, which is based on a postman who delivers parcels in an English village, was a huge hit with youngsters in the 1980s, and the film marking its 30th anniversary is set for release next year.
