Two Jesses Dive Into Animation For Ice Age: Collision Course


Jesse Tyler Ferguson

Modern Family star Jesse Tyler Ferguson plays Shangri Llama, the leader of a groovy, rainbow-coloured place called Geotopia. Voicing an animated character was something new to him, but he loved the experience. "Animation is very freeing," he says. "It's a collaborative process - the directors and the animators and the actors all sort of feed off of one another."

Jesse Tyler Ferguson on the red carpet

He also really enjoyed the silliness of his character. "It has been a lot of fun finding the voice for the Shangri Llama," Ferguson says. "He has this air of being very secure with who he is but then when things start to crumble around him he begins to lose that zen calmness that he's so proud of. That's been a really fun juxtaposition to play."

Ice Age: Collision Course Review

Good

With its fifth feature-length adventure, this franchise continues its preposterous journey at full tilt. As before, it's the zippy writing, lively vocal work and colourful animation that hold the interest. The story is merely a framework on which the cast and crew can hang a series of rapid-fire jokes, pop culture references and nonsensical action sequences. And it's still mindless fun.

After their previous escapades, the expanding herd of prehistoric critters is living a happy life together, thinking about love. Mammoths Manny and Ellis (voiced by Ray Romano and Queen Latifah) are struggling with the idea that their daughter Peaches (Keke Palmer) has fallen for the too-cheerful Julius (Adam Devine). Sid the sloth (John Leguizamo) has just been dumped and feels like he'll never find a partner. And tigers Diego and Shira (Denis Leary and Jennifer Lopez) worry that their violent nature will make them terrible parents. Then suddenly there's a bigger issue to worry about: a giant asteroid is heading for Earth, threatening them with extinction. With the help of nutty weasel Buck (Simon Pegg), they come up with an idea to save the planet. They also discover a magical place called Geotopia, ruled by the groovy Shangri Llama (Jesse Tyler Ferguson).

Yes, the plot is utterly insane, especially as it is driven by the antics of franchise star Scrat, who discovers a flying saucer in the ice, activates it and heads into space, where his acorn-hunting antics trigger all sorts of mayhem back on Earth. But then this series has never had anything to do with science or biology, throwing random animals together (the dinosaurs make another appearance) for comical value while cranking up whatever suspense the writers can think of to add some momentum. They also of course pack scenes with sweet "family values" moments, plus a sideswipe at climate change deniers who refuse to acknowledge the possibility of impending doom.

Meet The 'Modern Family' Cast That Could Have Been (But We're Glad Wasn't)


Craig T Nelson Ed O'Neill Kristen Johnston Lisa Kudrow Jesse Tyler Ferguson Eric Stonestreet Ty Burrell Julie Bowen

We can’t imagine a more perfect cast that the one that Modern Family already has. Every single of one of them has made the roles their own, almost like they were written with them in mind. So you’ll be surprised to hear that hardly any of them were the first choice for the parts! But who did the producers have lined up before the perfect cast finally came together?

Modern Family Alternate Cast Craig T. Nelson was first choice to play Modern Family patriarch Jay Pritchett

Family patriarch Jay Pritchett was originally pegged to be played by Emmy Award winner Craig T. Nelson. Best known for his role as Hayden Fox in Coach and as the voice of Mr. Incredible in the 2004 animated film The Incredibles, producers originally approached Nelson although his pay expectations were too high. Ed O’Neill, who the role eventually went to (and who just IS Jay) explained, “When I read [the script] I thought, ‘Oh boy, this is pretty good.’ And I called my managed and he said, ‘Well, they’re out to Craig T. Nelson.’” We’re grateful that they couldn’t afford Nelson because no-one plays grumpy good guy Jay Pritchard quite like Ed O’Neill.  We're also sure that Nelson is kicking himself since Sofia Vergara could have been his onscreen wife!  We wonder if he'd known that to begin with it would have made a difference?

Wentworth Miller Neil Patrick Harris Ellen Degeneres Jesse Tyler Ferguson

When Wentworth Miller outed himself as gay in response to an invite from a Russia film festival, he was inundated with messages of support for his public outing and for protesting the archaic anti-homosexuality legislation rife in the former communist country. After receiving praise from the likes Neil Patrick Harris, Ellen DeGeneres and Jesse Tyler Ferguson on Twitter, the latest star to tip their hat at Wentworth is White Collar star Matt Boomer.
