Fred Armisen will reunite with a fellow Saturday Night Live alum — in cartoon form.
EW has learned that Armisen will lend his voice to Jason Sudeikis’ hybrid Fox comedy Son of Zorn, which follows the adventures of an animated warrior named Zorn (Sudeikis), the defender of Zephyria who journeys back to live-action California to reconnect with his son and ex-wife. Armisen — who was at SNL during Sudeikis’ 2005-2013 tenure — will play a character named… oh, this is good… Vulchazor. As it turns out, Zorn’s evil, vulture-headed humanoid nemesis has been terrorizing the cartoon nation of Zephyria while Zorn has been off bonding with his family in Orange County.
Other famous voices will be heard coming out of the mouths of cartoon characters on Zorn, which premieres Sept. 25: Nick Offerman will play a cave-residing doctor, Olivia Wilde will pop up as Zorn’s ex-girlfriend Radiana, and Keegan-Michael Key will play Zorn’s warrior friend named Gobos the Great.
Armisen, who stars in (and co-created) IFC’s Portlandia and Documentary Now!, has recently popped on such shows as Difficult People, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Man Seeking Woman, and New Girl.
