Oh Fox. You just can't do something right, can you?
Give Firefly a shot, and then show the episodes out of order...
Renew Dollhouse but give Sarah Connor Chronicles the axe...
And now this?
Apparently, Fox is looking for new voice talent to replace Fry, Leela, and Bender among others. Seriously? You give us more Futurama and then chop out the soul of the show?
A casting call has gone out for voice actors for the roles normally voiced by John DiMaggio, Maurice LaMarche, Billy West and Katy Sagal. Besides the big 3, their roles also include Professor Farnsworth, Dr. Zoidberg, Zap Brannigan, Mom, and Kif.
Those are some pretty important roles that are responsible for the majority of the best lines. Not to mention all of the tertiary roles that the characters voiced, characters recognizable to the fans who've worn out their DVDs over the past few years such as Morbo or Robot Nixon.
The best result that can come from this is a show that looks like Futurama, sounds like Futurama, but doesn't feel like Futurama. The worst result is something that just doesn't work. Not to mention the voice actors losing their jobs.
If you feel strongly about this like I do, send an email to FUTURAMA@SCOTTMULLERCASTING.COM and voice your opinion.
Bad Fox. Bad.
