Tough-guy penguins, poop-throwing monkeys, a hypochondriac giraffe (David Schwimmer), a self-absorbed lion (Stiller), and a crazy lemur king (Sacha Baron Cohen) are all back in Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa, a sequel to DreamWorks’ megahit original. Although ‘toon voices are usually prerecorded individually to get cleaner tracks, McGrath says he and Darnell tried to record Stiller and Rock together whenever possible: ”They play off each other so well, you can almost toss the script pages away.”
