As if being a blockbuster star in franchises like the Marvel Cinematic Universe and Jurassic Park/World wasn’t a big enough deal, Chris Pratt is also now expanding his voice acting resume following his time as Emmet Brickowski in the LEGO movies. In addition to voicing Mario in Illumination’s Super Mario Bros. animated movie, it was revealed in November that he’s been tapped to voice comic strip icon Garfield too. Now word’s come in that Pratt will be joined in the animated Garfield movie by another MCU star: Samuel L. Jackson.
The Nick Fury to Chris Pratt’s Star-Lord (though the two of them haven’t actually shared screen time outside of Tony Stark’s funeral in Avengers: Endgame) has been brought aboard to voice a surprising new character in the animated Garfield movie: the title protagonist’s father, Vic. So now there are two people aboard this project following The Wrap’s casting update, although there’s still no word on who’s voicing Garfield’s owner, Jon Arbuckle. The new Garfield movie is directed by The Emperor’s New Groove’s Mark Dindal and written by Finding Nemo’s David Reynolds.
