Chipmunks wear Levis

02.11.2009

A lot of people wondered why Jason Lee signed on to star in ALVIN AND THE CHIPMUNKS. And then that movie went on to make over $200 million and Lee brought home some serious cash. Well Lee has decided he's gonna take the money and run. Jason Lee won't return for the film's sequel and has instead passed the reins to another NBC sitcom star, Zachary Levi of "Chuck." Levi will star in ALVIN AND THE CHIPMUNKS: THE SQUEAKQUEL, a movie that perhaps marks the first and only time a K and Q have appeared back-to-back in a movie title. Instead of replacing Lee as Dave Seville, Levi will play his cousin who gets tasked with watching the chipmunks. Somewhere in the mix of all this insanity will be the infamous Chippettes (and I still say Brittany is one of the hottest cartoon characters of all time). Filming will begin while Levi is on hiatus from "Chuck" and Fox has already set a December release date for the film. Lee is somewhere in the Bahamas counting his money and cackling.

Extra Tidbit: Levi is actually his middle name.

munks 2

They should just replace him and make him the new Dave, Lee did a crappy job as Dave and Levi looks like he could pull of the role better...who knows makbe Lee will return for a third if the second soes good which I think will.

Squeakquel...wow. That sounds a bit jibberish. Are they gonna start putting jibberish on movie sequel titles?

I can just see it now:

THE DARK KNIGHT 2: BHOOGFAD

I'd expect nothing more from the star of a shitty show to star in a shitty movie.

I dunno as much as I hate to say this the first Chipmunks movie was absolutely adorable.

And I have to admit Zachary Levi would surely do well in this role. And I do love him on Chuck, one of the better tv shows on right now imo.

Come on Zach

Zach is one of the funniest guys working on TV right now, with Chuck being such a great show, dont drop down to this level.
