'Finding Dory'Disney/Pixar

Prepare to hear a LOT of Bill Hader.

The former "Saturday Night Live" comedian is lending his voice to not one, but two of Pixar's upcoming animated films.

At Disney's D23 Expo today, Pixar announced the voice casts for "The Good Dinosaur" and "Inside Out," and the funnyman is part of both all-star lineups.

Next summer's "The Good Dinosaur," in which humans live alongside dinosaurs because the asteroid never hit Earth, features Lucas Neff ("Raising Hope") as Arlo. Hader, Neil Patrick Harris, and Judy Greer play his siblings, with John Lithgow and Frances McDormand voicing the parents.

"Inside Out," opening summer 2015, centers on the emotions of a little girl named Joy who's moving to San Francisco. Amy Poehler will play the lead character, while Hader is Fear, Lewis Black is Anger, Mindy Kaling is Disgust, and Phyllis Smith is Sadness.

In addition to those voice casting announcements, Pixar revealed that Eugene Levy and Diane Keaton have been added to "Finding Dory," the "Finding Nemo" sequel, as Dory's parents. Ty Burrell is also on board to play a beluga whale.

Meanwhile, "Finding Dory" has become somewhat involved in a scandal, with The New York Times reporting that the filmmakers are tweaking the story in response to backlash against SeaWorld generated by the documentary film "Blackfish." In "Finding Dory," the characters find themselves in a aquatic center; the new version makes it clear that they can choose to leave.
