Today was a little epiphanic.

I took my wife to see Pitch Perfect 2 at the cinema today. She pointed-out that one of the bit parts was the voice of Leela and, I'll be dammned, she was right.

So, I looked her up on IMDB and discovered that Katey Sagal also was Peggy Bundy in Married With Children, which brings a whole new depth to A Bicyclops Built for Two.

How did I not know this before?!

It's always fascinating when you recognise voice actors from Futurama in other things. Recently I recognised Maurice LaMarche's voice in one if the early episodes of Heroes.

Maurice pops-up everywhere - he was in Frozen! And Johnny Bravo.

That said, I don't recognise voices well and Maurice is a versatile voice-actor. It took my wife (not a huge Futurama fan) to point Katey out to me. I was very proud of myself for identifying Jennifer Saunders as the Fairy Godmother in Shrek 2 last week (how old is that film?). It took my wife to point out John Cleese (and I thought I was such a Python fan) and Julie Andrews.

I always do a double-take when I hear the red M&M. In my mind I can only hear Fry/Billy West.

I was more surprised to hear that jj Simmons voices the yellow one

In your defense, Python-era John Cleese did all sorts of funny voices; pretty much everything I've seen or heard him do in more modern times, though, has had him speaking with what I think of as that distinctive John Cleese sound (though whether that's by personal choice, instruction from directors, or a loss of vocal dexterity with age, I don't know). So now that you have a vocal reference point for him in Shrek 2, I'd say you'd only have to be embarrassed if you don't recognize his voice from now on. wink

Every now and then, if I'm watching Futurama around my dad, he'll turn to me and say "Is that Peg Bundy?"

Also, you may be interested to know that, despite Leela's lack of singing skills, Katey Sagal is quite the vocalist herself. smile

I have no idea what any of this means. This is why I don't spend much time in the movie reviews thread. tongue
