Dear FOX - You Suck.

    Prev Next

    According to sources, FOX will hire new voices for the renewal of the Futurama series after they couldn't reach a contract deal with the current actors.
    If true, this is a bad move - voice actors are the life blood of a cartoon. Even the animation can be bad (examples are far too numerous, but not this show) and the right voice work can make a show a success. I guess it wasn't enough for FOX to kill the show once, now they want to turn it into a zombie as well.

    UPDATE: Crisis resolved, original actors are returning!

      This is not really surprising. Fox will go down in history as the destroyer and meddler of many programs. The only thing they haven't managed to royally screw up is the Simpsons. Although that too is up for scrutiny.

      In the Comic-Con schedule, there's a Futurama thing on it with the original cast, so it is possible that this is some sort of stunt - they did the same thing with the Simpsons. I hope it is, even if it's a very lame/bad stunt to pull.

      I'm glad Futurama's back, but new voice actors? That right there ruins it.

      'Futurama' cast returning for reboot
      Original voices ink deal; end spat with Fox
      By MICHAEL SCHNEIDER

      The "Futurama" characters won't be sporting new voices after all.
      The five "Futurama" cast members -- John DiMaggio, Billy West, Katey Sagal, Maurice LaMarche and Tress MacNeille -- have just sealed pacts with 20th Century Fox TV to return to the show as it reboots with 26 new episodes for Comedy Central.

      Both the actors and 20th are believed to have found a compromise. Move comes after 20th put out a casting call earlier this month to find replacement actors for the show.

      "We are thrilled to have our incredible cast back," creators Matt Groening and David X. Cohen said in a statement. "The call has already gone out to the animators to put the mouths back on the characters."

      The studio announced in June that it would produce 26 new episodes of "Futurama," and that Comedy Central was on board to begin airing the new episodes in mid-2010. As part of the announcement, the show's producers said stars including West, Sagal and DiMaggio had all signed on to return...

      FUTURAMA@SCOTTMULLERCASTING.COM Send tonnes of hatemail to this address. Do it for Bender! And to a lesser extent Zoidberg.

      Seriously, what were the know-nothing corporate bozos thinking? Oh wait, I answered my own question.

      DAMN YOU FOX, DAMN YOU TO HADES!
