Alright, alright, Terry Crews‘ unabashed excitement over the upcoming Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2 isn’t entirely inexplicable – the former football star (and apparent renaissance man) is lending his voice to the new production, taking over the role of tough cop Earl Devereaux from Mr. T – but damn if the man is not excited about this new sequel. Fortunately, we are too.
In the new film, Flint Lockwood (voice of Bill Hader) and gal pal Sam Sparks (Anna Faris) return after the disaster of Swallow Falls, with Flint now employed at The Live Corp Company, run by his idol Chester V (Will Forte) and his “highly evolved orangutan with a human brain” Barb (Kristen Schaal). But while Flint and Sam have matured since we last saw them, they’re not the only ones, as Flint’s FLDSMDFR machine has also evolved, and it’s busy pumping out a number of different food-imals that threaten the entire world (and its taste buds). Crews’ favorite? The Sasquash. We’re still partial to the Wild Scallions.
Check out Terry Crews, his swank smoking jacket, and a brand new look at Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2 after the break.
