La La Anthony is freak-ing out…
The 38-year-old Puerto Rican actress has joined the voice cast of The Freak Brothers animated series adaptation.
The series, based on The Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers, the 1960s underground cult comic created by Gilbert Shelton, follows three stoner characters who, after smoking a magical strain of weed in 1969, are transported 50 years into the future to 2020 bringing their ’60s San Francisco attitude to the modern world.
Woody Harrelson voices laid-back Freewheelin’ Franklin Freek, John Goodman voices man-child Fat Freddy Freekowtski, and Pete Davidson voices paranoid Phineas T. Phreakers.
Tiffany Haddish also features as Kitty, alongside Adam Devine and Blake Anderson, who play Chuck and Charlie, a couple of weed savants always looking for the next side-hustle with hearts of gold hidden beneath their unwashed exteriors.
Anthony voices Gretchen, a social-advocate lawyer who is the more idealistic and compassionate younger sister of Harper.
Lionsgate has partnered with WTG Enterprises, which owns the IP of the comic
“I have been into cartoons and animation for as long as I can remember and have dreamed of having the opportunity to voice an animated series,” says Anthony. “And to share the screen with some of the greatest comedians of our time is amazing. I’m excited to be a part of this project and can’t wait for fans to see the show.”
Anthony’s previous credits include Two Can Play That Game, You Got Served, Think Like a Man and Think Like a Man 2.
