terrible news, everyone!

If Futurama was an anime

If Futurama was an anime

Remember how giddy we all felt upon hearing that Fox finally greenlit the relaunch of Futurama? Well, you should have known they would find some way of pissing all over our joy: They’re recasting essentially the entire cast:

Twentieth Century Fox, which is still producing the series even though new episodes will air on Comedy Central, is recasting the major voice roles for the show. That means no more Billy West (Fry, Professor, and Ziodberg), Katey Sagal (Leela), John DiMaggio (Bender), Maurice LaMarche (Kif Kroker, among others), or Tress MacNeil (Mom, and several others).Fox released a statement saying “We love the Futurama voice performers and absolutely wanted to use them, but unfortunately, we could not meet their salary demands. While replacing these talented actors will be difficult, the show must go on.”

Well, you can go on without me, assholes. I have less than no interest in a Futurama that doesn’t feature Billy West, Katy Sagal, or John DiMaggio.

Also, way to blame it on the actors. You stay classy, Fox. (I don’t give a rat’s ass if Katy Sagal demanded diamond-encrusted toilet seats in her trailer. Cough it up, you cheap, soulless bastards.)

    This is such crap, is there a petition or email list we can complain to. what is the point of bringing the show back, if you are going to “F” it up.
