‘Ultra City Smiths’: Kristen Bell, Dax Shepard, Alia Shawkat & Tim Meadows Cast In AMC+ Stop-Motion Animated Series
AMC has announced some new cast members for its upcoming stop-motion animated series, Ultra City Smiths, which was created by Steve Conrad, who serves as showrunner, and produced by Stoopid Buddy Stoodios.
The story follows an “investigation into the disappearances of a local magnate, with two detectives fighting against citywide corruption as they try to unravel the case. The twist is that the entire cast are baby dolls refitted as grown-up characters starring in a whodunnit, so it’s hardly going to be a gritty hard-boiled noir.”
The recently revealed cast members include Kristen Bell as Donella Pecker, Dax Shepard as Congressman Chris Pecker, Alia Shawkat as Little Grace, Tim Meadows as Deputy Mayor Jeff Thumb, Terry O’Quinn as Captain Krieger, Debra Winger as Trish McSapphire, Luis Guzmán as Rodrigo Smalls, Julian Barratt as The Most Dangerous Man in the World, Sunita Mani as Detective Jaya Mukherjee, and Tom Waits as The Narrator.
They join the previously announced Jimmi Simpson, Da’Vine Joy Randolph, John C. Reilly, Bebe Neuwirth, Jason Mantzoukas, Damon Herriman, Melissa Villaseñor, Kurtwood Smith, Tim Heidecker, Chris Conrad and Hana Mae Lee.
