News about Finding Nemo 2 has been making waves since last summer when of Finding Nemo's co-directors, Andrew Stanton, signed on to helm. Shortly thereafter it was announced Ellen DeGeneres would return as the forgetful but friendly fish Dory.but there was no word on Albert Brooks, who memorably lent his voice to the animated effort's reluctant hero Marlin the clownfish. Thankfully Deadline reports Brooks has officially signed on to reprise the role of Marlin. It seems in the wake of Brooks landing widespread critical acclaim for his portrayal of a brutal gangster in Drive, Disney had to lay out plenty of bait to get him on board for a sequel. Deadline doesn't give a guess at Brook's paycheck for his return, but describes the arrangement as a "fat deal." Brook's involvement is good news for Stanton, who needs a hit after his foray into live-action.with Disney's John Carter »
