No matter how it happened, 'SNL' vet Bill Hader has become one of the go-to voices for animation, as he leads this weekend's 'Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2' as Flint Lockwood. On top of that, he's popular at Pixar and will do voice work for their upcoming films 'The Good Dinosaur' and 'Inside Out,' which we talked about, and the process of doing voiceover in the days while working on 'SNL' at night.
Hader is knee-deep in the animated world as he's working on this new season of 'South Park,' where you could hear his Alec Baldwin impression last night. Hader is also one of the preeminent nerds in pop culture, so we covered a lot of ground in our freewheeling discussion about his career and his taste.

According to the studio, the film still needs more production time and has, therefore, been moved to a later release date in 2015 -- but that leaves next year without a feature.

Filmmaking is always a chaotic process where things can go wrong (or right) at the drop of a hat, and this applies doubly to the world of animation. Since animated films take years to make, they're constantly evolving and being rewritten and often key members of the cast and crew are replaced as the project trudges on. We don't know the details yet, but it looks like the process has claimed another victim: director Bob Peterson has been reportedly pulled off of Pixar's 'The Good Dinosaur.'
