Will Ferrell, Liam Neeson, Alison Brie, and Nick Offerman Join the 'LEGO' Movie
What do Will Ferrell, Liam Neeson, Alison Brie, and Nick Offerman all have in common? Well besides being hilarious people (even Liam Neeson in his own way), they're also going to be lending their voices to LEGO: The Piece of Resistance. They'll be joining a cast already comprised of Chris Pratt, Will Arnett, Morgan Freeman, and Elizabeth Banks. Leave it to LEGO to build what could possibly turn out to be the most awesome voiceover cast in the history of animation.
In the LEGO movie, Pratt plays an ordinary minifigure named Emmet. When he is mistakenly confused for a powerful "Master Builder," he is tasked with helping to defeat the evil President Business, played by Will Ferrell. Liam Neeson will star as Ferrell's henchman, Bad Cop.
Nick Offerman will play a pirate seeking revenge against President Business, while Allison Brie will be a hero "with a powerful secret." She'll also be somehow connected to Batman, according to The Film Stage, who will be voiced by Will Arnett.
Not much is known about Morgan Freeman or Elizabeth Banks' characters, but at this rate, I'm thinking they'll get pretty awesome roles as well.
Just the idea of a big-budget, big-screen LEGO adventure had me excited; and with a cast like this, you can bet I'll be there on opening night. LEGO: The Piece of Resistance will hit theaters on February 28, 2014.
