Futurama Voice Actors Stay On!


Thank f**k for that (pardon the language)...

This news below comes directly from scifiwire.com:

Good news, everyone!

Remember that report that Fox had sent out a casting call to replace the voice actors in the newly resurrected Futurama episodes that will air soon on Cartoon Network?

Seems it was a bargaining ploy after all, at least if we are to believe a report today in the Toronto Star.

The newspaper reports that the entire voice cast has just signed a new contract with Fox after weeks of intense salary negotiations, the newspaper reported:

As late as last week, the network was threatening to replace the original voices of Matt Groening's cult-hit cartoon, to the point of actually announcing a casting call for voice actors to replace them.

The compromise agreement, with the studio paying more and the actors accepting less, comes after the announcement of a 26-episode pick-up here by Comedy Central.

At last week's Comic-Con, the actors and producers downplayed the reports of recasting, saying that they figured things would work out. Looks like they were right. There's been no official confirmation yet from any of the parties, but it looks like Fry, Leela and Bender will keep their voices for now.
