Kerry Washington, Nathan Fillion and Lea DeLaria join the voice cast for Pixar’s Cars 3.
According to People (via Coming Soon) Washington (Scandal), Fillion (Castle) and DeLaria (Orange Is the New Black) are part of the voice cast for Pixar’s Cars 3. Washington will play a red sports car named Natalie Certain, Fillion a luxury car called Sterling, and DeLaria a school bus named Miss Fritter.
Washington described her character to People saying, “She is a super-smarty-pants statistician. She reminds of a statistical analyst on cable news or SportsCenter. She knows everything there is to know about the ins and outs of statistics when it comes to racing.”
They join Owen Wilson as Lightning McQueen, Larry the Cable Guy as Mater, Bonnie Hunt as Sally Carrera, and Cheech Marin as Ramone. Cars 3 arrives in theaters June 16, 2017.
“Cars 3 begins when, blindsided by a new generation of blazing-fast racers, the legendary Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson) is suddenly pushed out of the sport he loves. To get back in the game, he will need the help of an eager young race technician, Cruz Ramirez, with her own plan to win, plus inspiration from the late Fabulous Hudson Hornet and a few unexpected turns. Proving that #95 isn’t through yet will test the heart of a champion on Piston Cup Racing’s biggest stage!”
