"I am a leaf on the wind. Watch how I soar." - Wash.
Ok. Alan Tudyk may be more recently known for his co-starring role in ABC's Suburgatory, but he'll always be Wash to me (Firefly forever!) Just as Mindy Kaling is moving on to other projects, but will probably always be associated - at least a little bit - with her role as Kelly Kapoor in The Office, and Modern Family's Ed O'Neill with Al Bundy. What do these three actors have in common, besides beloved TV characters? They're among the talent being added to Walt Disney Animation Studios' upcoming animated feature Wreck-It Ralph.
"I'm gonna wreck it!"
If you've seen the trailer, you already know that Wreck-It Ralph follows an arcade-game character (John C. Reilly) who grows tired of constantly being the bad guy and goes on a quest to visit other video games to see if he has what it takes to be a hero. The film already boasts a solid voice-cast, which in addition to Reilly, includes Jack McBrayer, Jane Lynch and Sarah Silverman. Disney sent word today that a number of other known names (and voices) are joining the film.
Alan Tudyk will play King Candy "ruler of Sugar Rush, a candy-coated cart racing game." Ed O'Neill will be voicing the part of Mr. Litwak, the owner of an arcade. Mindy Kaling is set to play Taffyta Muttonfudge, an accomplished racer and nemesis to Silverman's Vanellope Von Schweetz. Adam Carolla and former SNL player Horatio Sanz have signed on to voice Wynchel and Duncan respectively, Sugar Rush security. Another (very) familiar voice will come from Dennis Haysbert ("That's Allstate's stand."), known for his roles in 24 and Major League among other things. He's set to play a General in first-person shooter game Hero's Duty.
Also joining the film are Edie McClurg, Roger Craig Smith, Gerald C. Rivers, Rachael Harris, Stefanie Scott, Ruban Langdon and Kyle Hebert. Needless to say at this point, it looks like this film will be full of familiar voices.
Wreck-It Ralph is set to arrive in theaters November 2. More information on the film can be found in our Blend Film Database.
