The Late Don Rickles Will Still Voice Mr. Potato Head in TOY STORY 4
Here’s some very cool and exciting news for Toy Story 4. I’ve been wondering who would replace Don Rickles as Mr. Potato Head in the film, but it turns out even though the actor and comedian passed away in 2017, they didn’t have to replace him!
Thant’s right! Director Josh Cooley has announced the voice of Mr. Potato Head will be that of Don Rickles! Now, the actor didn’t record anything for the film before he died, and while it’s not explained how they will be able to use Rickles voice, I imagine that they were able to piece together archived recordings from the first three films.
You can find the announcement below:
Are you happy to hear that Rickles will once again provide the voice of Mr. Potato Head!?
The full cast of the film includes Tom Hanks, Tim Allen, Annie Potts, Tony Hale, Keegan-Michael Key, Maddie McGraw, Christina Hendricks, Jordan Peele, Keanu Reeves, Ally Maki, Jay Hernandez, Lori Alan, Joan Cusack, Bonnie Hunt, Kristen Schaal, Emily Davis, Wallace Shawn, John Ratzenberger, Blake Clark, June Squibb, Carl Weathers, Lila Sage, Don Rickles, Jeff Garlin, Maliah Bargas-Good, Jack McGraw, Juliana Hansen, and Estelle Harris.
Woody, Buzz Lightyear and the rest of the gang embark on a road trip with Bonnie and a new toy named Forky. The adventurous journey turns into an unexpected reunion as Woody’s slight detour leads him to his long-lost friend Bo Peep. As Woody and Bo discuss the old days, they soon start to realize that they’re worlds apart when it comes to what they want from life as a toy.
Toy Story 4 hits theaters on June 21, 2019.
