Published Jan 15, 2016A$AP Mob members A$AP Rocky and A$AP Ferg are among the many guests set to channel their inner beast for the first season of forthcoming HBO animated comedy Animals, it's been revealed. The program makes its official debut February 5 through HBO.
Created and featuring the voices of Phil Matarese and Mike Luciano, the show concerns a bunch of anthropomorphic animals getting through their day-to-day in New York City. While it's unclear who they'll play, rappers Ferg and Rocky are among the many guests tapped to appear this season.
Philly psych-folk player Kurt Vile had tweeted out in 2015 that he, too, had been approached to contribute a voice for the adult-geared cartoon series.
Actors also set to provide voices for Animals include Nick Kroll, Jessica Chastain, Marc Maron, Rob Corddry, Eric Andre, Adam Scott, Cobie Smulders, Jay and Mark Duplass, Horatio Sanz, Molly Shannon and Wanda Sykes, among others.
A press release notes that Animals showcases "downtrodden creatures, lovelorn rats, gender-questioning pigeons or aging bedbugs in the midst of a midlife crisis" whose conversations "prove startlingly similar to our own."
As you may gather via the teaser down below, that's Wanda Sykes voicing an economy-conscious Central Park horse heroically creating jobs for New York City's sanitary commission by taking a dump on the street.
Animals: they're just like us.
