Apparently, 20th Century Fox has covertly found most of the voice cast for their upcoming movie based on Brad Anderson's popular comic strip Marmaduke, which will be a mix of live action and CG-animated creatures similar to Fox's previous family hits Garfield and Alvin and the Chipmunks. Directed by Tom Dey (Failure to Launch), the movie was shot in Vancouver over the summer and is currently scheduled for a release on June 4, 2010.
To date, only Judy Greer had been mentioned to play Debbie Winslow in the movie, while Lee Pace from "Pushing Daisies" is playing Phil Winslow, but a small throwaway piece in Variety about Anjelah Johnson joining the cast, mentioned some of the voice cast and with a little more searching around, we found a very long list of those involved with providing voices for various animated characters in the movie, none of whom we know anything about except for their names:
Amanda Seyfried voices "Mazie," Jeremy Piven is "Bosco," Ron Perlman plays "Chupadogra," Christopher Mintz-Plasse (aka "McLovin") is "Guiseppe," while Black Eyed Peas singer Stacy "Fergie" Ferguson is "Jezebel." Steve Coogan voices "Raisin," George Lopez is "Carlos" and Damon Wayans Jr. provides the voice for "Thunder."
The original comic strip about a family and their Great Dane has been published fairly regularly since 1954, and it spawned a series of cartoons in 1980.
