The running theme of The LEGO Movie is “everything is awesome.” How it stacks up only time will tell, but the movie definitely pulled plenty of “awesome” with the voice casting. This one’s a doozy and has just about every comedic actor working today. I think the only person in Hollywood missing from The LEGO Movie’s cast is Christopher Walken.
In preparation for the near constant confusion of wondering “Who’s voice is that?” when watching the movie, I’ve compiled a guide for which actor matches up with their plastic block counterpart.
Chris Pratt as Emmet Brickowoski
Alison Brie as Unikitty
Anthony Daniels as C3PO
Channing Tatum as Superman
Charlie Day as Benny
Cobie Smulders as Wonder Woman
Elizabeth Banks as Wyldstyle
Jonah Hill as The Green Lantern
Jorma Taccone as Shakespeare
Billy Dee Williams as Lando
Liam Neeson as Bad Cop/Good Cop
Morgan Freeman as Vitruvius
Nick Offerman as Metal Beard
Shaq as Shaq
Will Arnett as Batman
Will Ferrell as Lord Business
Will Forte as Abraham Lincoln
Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to track down the LEGO counterparts for Dave Franco as Wally and Jake Johnson as Barry. Sorry, about that, fellas.
