Jeff Goldblum, Eva Longoria & more join the Boss Baby sequel cast
Dreamworks Animation recently added several bundles of joy to the cast of their Boss Baby sequel with Jeff Goldblum, Eva Longoria, Ariana Greenblatt, James Marsden, and Amy Sedaris all signed on to voice characters for the upcoming animated film.
The sequel is officially titled THE BOSS BABY: FAMILY BUSINESS, which will see Alec Baldwin reprising his role as Boss Baby Ted, with Jimmy Kimmel and Lisa Kudrow also poised to return as Ted’s parents. Tom McGrath, who directed the first film in the series, is back to helm the sequel alongside producer Jeff Hermann.
“The everyday joy for me is not only watching our actors make a line hilarious or heartfelt through subtle adjustments but the process they all share of improvisation and character creation,” said McGrath in a statement. “They are the heart and soul of the characters they bring to life.”
Per Dreamworks Animation’s announcement, the sequel will take place years after the 2017 film, when both Templeton brothers – Tim (Marsden) and his Boss Baby little bro Ted (Baldwin) – have become adults and aren’t nearly as close as they used to be.
“Tim is now a married dad. Ted is a hedge fund CEO. But a new boss baby with a cutting-edge approach and a can-do attitude is about to bring them together again … and inspire a new family business.
“Tim and his super-mom wife Carol (Longoria) live in the suburbs with their super-smart 7-year-old daughter Tabitha (Greenblatt), and super-cute new infant Tina (Sedaris). Tabitha, who’s at the top of her class at the prestigious Acorn Center for Advanced Childhood, idolizes her Uncle Ted and wants to become like him, but Tim worries that she’s working too hard and is missing out on a normal childhood.
“When baby Tina reveals that she’s—ta-da!—a top-secret agent for BabyCorp on a mission to uncover the dark secrets behind Tabitha’s school and its mysterious founder, Dr. Armstrong (Goldblum), it will reunite the Templeton brothers in unexpected ways, lead them to re-evaluate the meaning of family and discover what truly matters.”
“We are so fortunate to work with such a talented ensemble of actors, all of whom possess tremendous imaginations,” said director Tom McGrath. “The everyday joy for me is not only watching our actors make a line hilarious or heartfelt through subtle adjustments but the process they all share of improvisation and character creation. They are the heart and soul of the characters they bring to life.”
“We are so thrilled to welcome these new additions to our Boss Baby family,” said producer Jeff Hermann. “James, Amy, Ariana, Eva, and Jeff each bring so much depth, wit, and charm to combine with Alec, Lisa, and Jimmy to form an incredibly rich ensemble, one which expands upon the world of the first movie in unexpected and exciting ways.”
THE BOSS BABY: FAMILY BUSINESS is expected to crawl into theaters on March 26, 2021.
