New star-studded ‘Incredibles 2’ cast revealed with homage to addicting Google art appOn January 23, 2018 by Maybell
The cast of the original Incredibles made it a truly super movie, with award-winning actors like Holly Hunter and Samuel L. Jackson lending their voices to spot-on characters like Elastigirl and Frozone.
Newly announced additions to the cast find even more prestigious actors joining these returning stars for the highly anticipated Incredibles 2 releasing next summer. And a side-by-side comparison of them as an homage to Google’s popular art app shows the skin-deep similarities between them and their new Super personas.
Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul‘s Bob Odenkirk plays a wealthy businessman named Winston Deavor, who co-owns one of the biggest tech companies alongside his brilliant sister, Evelyn. The brains behind their operation, Evelyn will be voiced by the Oscar-nominated Catherine Keener (Being John Malkovich, The 40-Year-Old Virgin).
Odernick isn’t the only Breaking Bad expat, either: Jonathan Banks, who portrayed lovable tough guy Mike, is also joining as Rick Dicker. He’s the no-nonsense government official in charge of the Super Relocation Program, the division trying to help keep the family’s Super identities a secret.
Other new characters announced include Voyd, a new Super voiced by Sophia Bush described as an Elastigirl megafan, whose superpower gives her “the ability to divert and manipulate objects around her by creating voids.” Blue Velvet actress Isabella Rossellini is a character known only as “Ambassador,” who advocates for the legalization of Superheroes.
Incredibles 2‘s story is something of an inversion of the first: Helen (AKA Elastigirl) will embark on her own solo journey, while Bob (voiced by Craig T. Nelson) is stuck at home with the kids and navigating the “day-to-day heroics of ‘normal life.'”
The film is slated for release on June 15 in the US.
