Hank Azaria, who will play “a fictional Egyptian pharaoh that comes to life” in Night at the Museum 2: Escape From the Smithsonian, talked more about the cast to MTV.
“I’m the villain in the movie and have all sorts of nasty plans for modern society and poor Ben Stiller gets caught in the middle of it,” says Azaria.
The actor added that Amy Adams (Enchanted) will be playing Amelia Earhart and that many of the original cast are set to return. “Owen [Wilson] is coming back and so is Steve Coogan and Ricky Gervais. And there’s other fun folks too who haven’t officially signed on yet playing historical figures,” he teased.
