It looks like Benjamin Bratt will be heading back to the world of broadcasting…
The 48-year-old half-Peruvian American actor will be returning to lend his voice to the character of Manny the cameraman in the sequel to the animated film Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs.
Along with Bratt, Sony Pictures Animation has reunited most of the original voicecast for the sequel, titled Cloudy 2: Revenge of the Leftovers.
Bill Hader and Anna Faris return as the two leads, inventor Flint Lockwood and weather girl Sam Sparks. Also back are James Caan as Flint’s dad, Andy Samberg as a local celebrity and Neil Patrick Harris.
New to the voicecast is The Expendables 2 star Terry Crews, who will play a cop in the town of Swallow Falls. Will Forte, who had a role in the first movie, is back in a new role, that of Chester V, an inventor and idol of Lockwood’s who invites him to join others bright minds at a technology company.
According to the studio, Cloudy 2 picks up where the first movie left off, with Lockwood discovering that his evil machine, which turns water into food, “is still operating and now creating mutant food beasts. With the fate of humanity in his hands, Flint and his friends must embark on a dangerously delicious mission, battling hungry tacodiles, shrimpanzees, apple pie-thons, double bacon cheespiders and other food creatures to save the world… again!”
Cloudy 2 is set for release in 3D on February 7, 2014.
