Turns out Diane Keaton does like Green Eggs and Ham.
During an appearance on Tuesday’s episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, the actress and Ellen DeGeneres announced that Keaton is part of the upcoming Netflix animated adaptation of the Dr. Seuss classic book Green Eggs and Ham.
After four years in the making, the series is for a fall 2019 release. Executive produced by DeGeneres, the star-studded ensemble cast also includes: Adam Devine as Sam I Am, Michael Douglas as Guy I Am, Ilana Glazer as E.B., Eddie Izzard as Snerz, Jeffrey Wright as McWinkle, Jillian Bell as Gluntz, John Turturro as Goat, Tracy Morgan as Fox, Daveed Diggs as Mouse, and Keegan-Michael Key as the Narrator.
During the segment on her show, DeGeneres revealed that it had been difficult to acquire the rights to the series, but she had finally been given the go-ahead from Seuss’ widow. Based on the beloved book, the upcoming series “follows opposites Guy and Sam as they venture out on a road trip to save an endangered animal from a far off zoo. Along the way they learn to try new things like hope, friendship, and a certain delectable dish.” What could it be?
