Hoodwinked 2 — casting news, updates


Cory Edwards has posted an item at his blog listing some of the main cast members in Hoodwinked 2: Hood Vs. Evil.

Characters and actors returning from the first film:

  1. Cory Edwards, Twitchy
  2. Glenn Close, Granny
  3. Patrick Warburton, The Wolf
  4. David Ogden Stiers, Nicky Flippers
  5. Andy Dick, Boingo
  6. Benjy Gaither, Japeth the Goat

Old characters, new voices:

  1. Hayden Panettiere, Red (formerly Anne Hathaway)
  2. Martin Short, The Woodsman (formerly Jim Belushi)

New characters, new actors:

  1. Joan Cusack, “a new villainous witch”
  2. Brad Garrett, The Giant “from the notorious beanstalk”
  3. Wayne Newton, Jimmy Ten Strings, a “singing harp”
  4. David Alan Grier, “a troll”
  5. Bill Hader, Hansel
  6. Amy Poehler, Gretel

Sounds good. Let’s hope they can bring back Fleming & John for the soundtrack — and let’s hope this soundtrack album isn’t yanked off the market prematurely like the first one was.

    looking at the cast, those are some good choices. they almost seem stereotyped, though (andy dick as a crazy mad bunny, brad garrett as a giant, joan cusack as a witch, martin short as a cartoon…)
