Jason Sudeikis will voice the character of Red in the upcoming “Angry Birds” feature film.
During the past 48 hours, avid fans of “Angry Birds” have discovered the names of the voice cast — plus got a sneak-peek at the look of the characters of the upcoming “Angry Birds” feature film. It was accomplished thanks to game players slinging 1billion birds!
Jason Sudeikis will be starring as Red, described as “a bird with a temper problem.” Josh Gad, who found fame starring on Broadway in “The Book of Mormon,” will create the voice of Speedy Chuck. This animated role follows his huge, Oscar-winning hit, “Frozen.” Danny McBride (“This Is The End,” “Eastbound & Down”) will voice the volatile Bomb. Bill Hader is described as joining “the pork side,” which will make his role clear to any player of “Angry Birds.”
The other key characters will be voiced by Peter Dinklage and Maya Rudolph, like Sudeikis and Hader, a former longtime “Saturday Night Live” ensemble member.
The supporting cast will feature Keegan-Michael Key (“Key & Peele”), SNL’s Kate McKinnon, Tony Hale (“Veep,” “Arrested Development”) and Chicago’s own Ike Barinholtz (“Neighbors,” “The Mindy Project”).
“Angry Birds,” Rovio’s first feature film venture, is scheduled to hit theaters on July 1, 2016.
