'Paul' Cast's Alien Voice

Are you a fan of Simon Pegg and Nick Frost? If you are, then you should be pretty amped for their upcoming film being directed by Gregg Mottola (Superbad) called "Paul". Well the news get's better, Variety is reporting that Seth Rogen, Jason Bateman, Bill Hader, Kristen Wiig and Jane Lynch have all been cast in the buddy comedy written by Simon Pegg and Nick Frost.

The film follows Pegg and Frost playing two british comic book fans who embark on a road trip across the U.S. The two friends along their journey find themselves at Area 51 and helping an alien named Paul escape the facility. Seth Rogen will voice the alien, while Hader, Bateman, Wiig and Lynch are sure to play supporting cast they meet along their adventure.

Seth Rogen is no stranger to voicing animated characters having done both Monsters vs Aliens this year and Kung Fu Panda the year prior and should be a perfect compliment to both Pegg and Frost's usual banter in "Paul". As for the rest of the casting news, I can't say enough positive things about Bateman, Hader and Wiig. Those three always fill in the supporting cast in demanding fashion providing quality performances time and time again.

What say you? Does Paul sound like a good time? Are you tiring of the road trip film? Strikeback...
