I vaguely remember reading an article about the upcoming animated feature Marmaduke. The film is based on the popular comic strip character of the same name that was originally created by Brad Anderson. The film will be a mix of CGI and live action following in the footsteps of Alvin and the Chipmunks and Garfield. The newly announced cast features everyone from a British comedian to a Black Eye Pea, find out who’ll be behind the scenes of Marmaduke.
- Amanda Seyfried – “Mazie,”
- Jeremy Piven -”Bosco,”
- Ron Perlman -”Chupadogra,”
- Christopher Mintz-Plasse -”Guiseppe,”
- Stacy “Fergie” Ferguson -”Jezebel.”
- Steve Coogan – “Raisin,”
- George Lopez - “Carlos”
- Damon Wayans Jr. – “Thunder.”
- Judy Greer – “Debbie Winslow”
- Lee Pace – “Phil Winslow”
I’m not really surprised by Fergie’s casting in this film because she has a history of voice work as a child actor. She used to do one of the voices on Charlie Brown. I think the one thing we want to know is, who’s going to play Marmaduke? The character isn’t even mentioned.
“The original comic strip for the character was about a family and their Great Dane has been published fairly regularly since 1954, and it spawned a series of cartoons in 1980.”
What do you think about the voice cast of Marmaduke?
