'Angry Birds' movie cast revealed: Peter Dinklage, Jason Sudeikis to star
MANILA, Philippines – They’ve found a way to make an Angry Birds movie, and the cast has just been revealed.
Horrible Bosses’ Jason Sudeikis and Game of Thrones’ Peter Dinklage headline a star-studded cast, which also features Josh Gad (Frozen’s Olaf), Maya Rudolph, Danny McBride, and Bill Hader.
Jason will play the most famous Angry Bird Red, Josh will play Chuck, and Danny will play Bomb.
Bil Hader will join the cast as a pig, while Maya will play a character called Matilda. Peter Dinklage will lend his silky, distinct voice to the character of Mighty Eagle.
Details on the plot inspired from the popular game have been spare, though we do know that the movie is set to premiere in the US in July 2016.
In the game, players must launch birds via slingshot at pigs positioned throughout the screen. Several versions spinning off from the original Angry Birds game have also been released.
Also rounding out the cast are a host of other funny people: Saturday Night Live’s Kate McKinnon, Arrested Development’s tony Hale, Keegan-Michael Key, Ike Barinholtz, Hannibal Buress, Cristela Alonzo, Jillian Bell, Danielle Brooks, Romeo Santos, and YouTube stars Smosh (Ian Andrew Hecox and Anthony Padilla).
