Im very glad they secured him, the show would be dead on arrival if they didnt. Now to anticipate the 3rd coming of greatness.
DiMaggio is back baby
Last month, Hulu announced a revival to the Matt Groening and David X. Cohens cult animated sci-fi comedy Futurama with a 20-episode order. Unfortunately, voice actor John DiMaggio held off on returning to the show due to a contract conflict. DiMaggio's signature voice role is the foul-mouthed robot Bender and an assortment of other characters.
Hulu announced today that John DiMaggio and Hulu have come to an agreement and DiMaggio will be reprising his signature voice role. DiMaggio released a statement about his return to the show and thanked fans who supported him.
IM BACK, BABY! So damn grateful for the love and support of fans and colleagues alike during this whole time (especially my wife, Kate), and I cannot wait to get back to work with my Futurama family, DiMaggio said. #Bendergate is officially over, so put it on the back of a shelf behind Xmas decorations, or maybe in that kitchen drawer with all of the other crap you put in there like old unusable crazy glue, or maybe even put it in a jar you save farts in. Whatever floats your boat, I dont care, you get the picture. IM BACK, BABY! BITE MY SHINY METAL ASS!
FUTURAMA focuses on the life of Philip Fry (Billy West), a 25-year-old pizza delivery boy who accidentally freezes himself on December 31, 1999, and wakes up 1,000 years later with a fresh start at life and a "diverse" new group of friends including Leela (Katey Sagal), a tough but lovely one-eyed alien and Bender, a robot who possesses human characteristics and flaws.
Yeahhhh if Bender is recast, its dead in the water imo. I was already worried that they wont have enough creativity like they kind of did when they came back the first time. I was happy they had came back before but it wasnt as good. If Disenchantment is any indication of their ideas, Im still on board. Its kind of weird they havent secured DiMaggio for Futurama but is in Disenchantment.
I'll be much less excited if Bender gets recast.
Just read this on another site and I am really excited.
