DreamWorks Animation is expanding the voice cast for The Croods 2, its upcoming sequel to the 2013 animated hit, with news that Leslie Mann (This is 40) and Kat Dennings (Thor: The Dark World) will lend their voices to new characters.
Mann will portray the matriarch of an upscale family that winds up in a rivalry with the titular caveman family and their human companion. Dennings, meanwhile, will play the frustrated daughter of that new family, who yearns to hunt but is consistently suppressed by her “civilized” parents.
The key players are all back for this follow-up, including Nicolas Cage as the Croods’ patriarch Grug, Catherine Kenner as mother Ugga, feisty daughter Eep (Emma Stone), luggish son Thunk (Clark Duke), ferocious grandma Gran (Cloris Leachman) and Ryan Reynolds as human companion Guy. Kirk De Micco and Chris Sanders are once again writing and directing.

As much as a certain contingency of the television-viewing public would wish it so, however, television cannot only be about costumed white dudes saving the world. So, in addition to Legends of Tomorrow, The CW has also dropped the trailers for Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, a new comedy series, and Containment, a new thriller-drama centered on the international outbreak of an unknown contagion. It's probably too much to ask that it's exactly like Steven Soderbergh's Contagion though, right? Gadnabbit. It's interesting to note that Crazy Ex-Girlfriend has a similarly ambitious, bold tone to its comedy, »
