Cloudy, With A Chance Of Revenge!

I am not ashamed to admit one of my favourite recent animated movies was Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs. It was absurdity at it's finest. The odd-ball humour, the fine voice work, the gleefully unrealistic animation. Steve. It was a treat, from beginning to end.

The voice cast of the sequel, Cloudy 2: Revenge of the Leftovers (my title is better), has been announced, and it's more of the same. Bill Hader, who deserves more starring roles in any sort of film, will return as Flint, and be joined by Anna Faris, James Caan and Neil Patrick Harris, all reprising their original roles. New to the cast are Terry Crews, taking over the role of Earl from Mr. T, Will Forte playing Flint's new boss, inventor Chester V (whom I'm betting is the bad guy), and Flight of the Conchords/Daily Show actress Kristen Schaal as an intelligent orangutan named Barb. A possible love interest for Steve, me thinks?

The only downside to all this? No sign of Bruce Campbell anywhere. I know, the role of the Mayor probably has no place in the sequel, but the lack of Campbell in anything is sad, and worth noting.

I will now list every film and television series set for release that does not feature Bruce Campbell:

Everything that isn't Burn Notice.
Something called Tar.
