Will Ferrell, Liam Neeson and Ron Swanson Join ‘Lego’ Movie
Man, this ‘Lego‘ movie is shaping up to sound kind of amazing, right? Liam Neeson, Will Ferrell, Nick Offerman, and Alison Brie have just joined the voice cast for the upcoming animated adventure, guaranteeing that this is one funny movie.
Deadline reports that Liam Neeson, Will Ferrell, Nick Offerman (Ron Swanson!), and Alison Brie have all joined the voice cast of the upcoming ‘Lego’ movie from the writing and directing team of Phil Lord and Chris Miller — the awesome duo that brought us this year’s ‘21 Jump Street,’ which proved to be way more hilarious than we could have anticipated at the time, and for that, we apologize.
The quartet of talent joins the already cast Elizabeth Banks, Will Arnett, Chris Pratt, and Morgan Freeman in the 3D animated flick, which is set to hit theaters on February 7, 2014, which is really, really far away. The film follows Emmet (Pratt), who’s just your totally normal and average Lego mini-figure, until he’s accidentally mistaken for the most amazing Lego person in the history of ever and the key to saving the Lego world. Emmet goes on a journey with a fellowship of strangers to stop an evil tyrant.
Ferrell will voice the main villain, President Business (we love it), Nesson is his right-hand guy named Bad Cop (this is just amazing), Offerman is a foul-mouthed pirate, and Brie will be one of Emmet’s fellow heroes who happens to have a powerful secret.
