Fred Armisen is heading out there…
The 45-year-old half-Venezuelan actor and former Saturday Night Live star has joined the voice cast for the new IFC animated series Out There, premiering February 22.
The cable channel also announced that Ryan Quincy — the show’s creator and a two-time, Emmy-winning animation director and producer of South Park — will voice the main character, Chad Stevens.
Rounding out the chorus of voices: Megan Mullally; Linda Cardinelli; Pamela Adlon (Louie, King of the Hill); John DiMaggio (Futurama); Kate Micucci (Raising Hope, Bored to Death); and Justin Roiland (Fish Hooks).
Out There takes place in the small town of Holford and follows the lives of “socially awkward” Chad, younger brother Jay (Micucci) and best friend Chris (Roiland). DiMaggio and Mullally are Chad’s conservative parents and Armisen voices the “disastrous boyfriend” of Chris’ mom (Adlon). Cardinelli is Chad’s crush, Sharla.
“It was important to have these characters feel real,” said Quincy, who also writes and executive produces the show. “What I love so much about our cast is they are all amazing actors that can create funny, believable and endearing characters.”
Out There is produced for IFC by 20th Century Fox Television.
