Evan Rachel Wood and Sterling K. Brown In Talks for 'Frozen 2'
No word on what characters the stars of "Westworld" and "This is Us" might be voicing in the sequel to the 2013 smash hit.
But both have the acting and singing chops required. Proof includes that time Wood belted out Justin Bieber's "Baby" for Jimmy Fallon. And when Brown served up a sweet Boyz II Men song with his "Marshall" costars Chadwick Boseman and Josh Gad.
Wood just received her second Emmy nomination for "Westworld." Brown, last year's Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series, is nominated again for NBC’s "This Is Us" as well as for a guest spot on Fox's "Brooklyn Nine-Nine.”
Both actors have previously voiced characters on "Robot Chicken." Wood also lent her voice to 2015's "Strange Magic," while Brown's voicework includes the upcoming "The Angry Birds Movie 2."
They'll be joining returning stars Idina Menzel (Elsa), Kristen Bell (Anna), and Gad (Olaf) in "Frozen 2." Co-directors Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck will also be back, with Lee writing the script. Lee was just named chief creative officer at Walt Disney Animation Studios, following John Lasseter’s exit. (Pete Docter will be overseeing Pixar Animation Studios.)
"Frozen 2" is scheduled for the primo holiday release date of November 27, 2019.
