Anna Faris, Dan Aykroyd, and Justine Timberlake are the latest members to join the Yogi Bear cast in the live-action/CGI movie from Warner Bros.  Faris will play a documentary filmmaker, while Aykroyd is in talks to play the voice of the famous bear.  Where does that leave Timberlake?  Yup.  He’s up for the voice of Boo-Boo.

Yogi’s character, inspired by Art Carney’s portrayal of Ed Norton on “The Honeymooners,” first appeared in Hanna-Barbera cartoons in 1958 and was voiced by Daws Butler.

The movie is expected to start shooing in New Zealand in December.
