The Sci-Fi Wire reports on some information about the English dub cast for Hayao Miyazaki's Ponyo on a Cliff by the Sea, hitting US theaters on August 14th. An official cast list has never, as far as I can tell, been officially announced, although a Craig's List ad purported a cast list that GhibliWorld was able to partially confirm and generally seems to have come to be true.
Since we never made a “hey, look at the awesome cast!” post here, I thought I'd go ahead and go for it. Here's they are:
- Noah Lindsey Cyrus (yes, Miley Cyrus' little sister) – Ponyo
- Frankie Jonas (yes, of the Jonas Brothers) – Sosuke
- Liam Neeson – Fujimoto, Ponyo's dad
- Tina Fey – Risa (re-christened “Lisa”), Sosuke's mom
- Cate Blanchett – Granmamare (Sosuke's grandmother, natch)
- Matt Damon – Koichi, Sosuke's dad
Cloris Leachman, Btty White, and Lily Tomlin also have unspecified roles in the flick.
What say you? Pretty star-studded, eh?
