Fox to recast “Futurama”?
If you’re all excited about the return of “Futurama” you might want to hold off on that Bender tattoo you were planning. According to a number of the cast member's Facebook pages, yeah Facebook, Fox has decided to recast a a big chunk of the main characters' voices. John DiMaggio, Phil LaMarr, Maurice LaMarche, Billy West and Katy Sagal are apparently all up to be replaced. For those of you playing along at home that’s pretty much every character except Amy.
The first thought is obviously that Fox doesn’t want to be paying "Simpsons" prices for a show that never did nearly as well but I find it hard to believe that Peg Bundy was going to be demanding trillions. I could be wrong though. Whatever the reasoning I don’t see this working out well for anyone. Fans of the show are a fickle bunch and most likely will not stand for any bullshit. We’ll see I guess!
