John Cusack is all set to take over the voice role in the animated comedy about a mad scientist's even more brilliant hunchbacked assistant. Igor has been recast. The Hollywood Reporter says John Cusack has taken over the role originally set for Christian Slater in the CGI animated comedy. Igor, in this comedy, is a misshapen, gifted scientist, forced to assist the cruel and mad Dr. Glickenstein. There is also Sean Hayes who has joined the all-star cast of the animation, playing Igor's best friend, Brian the Brain, a disembodied brain in a jar.
The rest of the enviable cast includes Jeremy Piven, Jay Leno, Jennifer Coolidge, Molly Shannon, Steve Buscemi and John Cleese. Cusack will be on screen this summer in the Stephen King thriller 1408 with Samuel L. Jackson. He recently completed The Martian Child and War, Inc. with Ben Kingsley.
