Will Forte Talks Finding His Voice For ‘Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs 2,’ ‘Nebraska’ Praise At Cannes
Will Forte can currently be heard in animated sequel Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2 with fellow Saturday Night Live alum Bill Hader. In Cloudy, Forte plays inventor Chester V, the idol of Hader’s Flint Lockwood. The hardest part for Forte was figuring out what Chester V had to sound like. “The animation process takes so long that you can change some stuff around, but it’s kind of important to get together with the directors and all be on the same page about what voice they want you to do,” Forte revealed. “The hardest part of it was trying to settle on a voice and eventually we came up with one we all liked, so from there, it’s fun and easy.”
Among the food beasts in the Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2 world is a cheesespider, which Forte – who is admittedly both spider-adverse a cheese lover – finds to be the most fearsome. Less frightening “foodimals,” though equally as dangerous, will include tacodiles, hippotatomuses and shrimpanzees.
Forte also recently filmed opposite Bruce Dern in the family road trip drama Nebraska, helmed by Alexander Payne that premiered at the Cannes Film Festival to rave reviews. “I never thought that I would be [at Cannes] as anything more than a spectator, so it was so fun to be there with this movie that you’re really proud of,” Forte told Uinterview. “It was just such an exciting experience and I still can’t believe I got to be in that movie, to be honest.”
Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2 hit theaters Sept. 27. Nebraska is slated for limited release on Nov. 15.
