Fred Armisen, Pamela Adlon And Adventure Time's John DiMaggio Join Voice Cast For IFC's Out There

Very recently, my mind was blown by the realization that Pamela Adlon's first credited role (as Pamela Segall) was Dolores Rebchuck, younger sister to Pink Lady Paulette in Grease 2, the greatest guilty-pleasure musical of my existence. I want to say that this explains my appreciation for the actor in recent years, but really, the credit for that goes to Adlon, who's proven adept at well-timed sarcasm and humor in various roles. In addition to playing Marcy Runkle in Californication and Pamela in Louie's first two seasons, she's provided her voice to a number of roles, including recent seasons of Thundercats, Beavis and Butt-Head and Bob's Burgers. Next up, it looks like we'll be hearing her among the principal voice cast for IFC's upcoming animated original series Out There.

IFC announced a number of additions to the voice cast for Out There today. In addition to Adlon, Freaks and Geeks' Linda Cardellini, Portlandia's Fred Armisen, Raising Hope's Kate Micucci, Childrens Hospital's Megan Mullally, Fish Hooks' Justin Roiland, and John DiMaggio - who voices the role of Jake (the Dog) on Adventure Time as well as Bender in Futurama - are all among the principal voice cast for Ryan Quincy's animated series.

Out There chronicles the coming-of-age misadventures of socially awkward Chad (Ryan Quincy), his little brother Jay (Kate Micucci) and his best friend, Chris (Justin Roiland). Living in the small town of Holford, the boys wander its surreal, bleak landscape waiting out their last few years of adolescence. Along the way, viewers meet Chad’s conservative parents, Wayne (John DiMaggio) and Rose (Megan Mullally), as well as Chris’s single mother, Joanie (Pamela Adlon) and her disastrous boyfriend, Terry (Fred Armisen). They also meet the object of Chad’s affection, Sharla (Linda Cardellini).

The voice cast alone is worth tuning in for, and the synopsis sounds like it should fit in well on IFC, which prides itself on being "Always on. Slightly off." Here's a preview for the series, which is expected to arrive in February:
