Robert Downey Jr. is starting where Eddie Murphy left off by adding his talents to the Dr. Dolittle franchise. Downey Jr. is set to star in ‘The Voyage Of Dr. Dolittle’ when it hits theaters next April. Yesterday, the film’s entire cast was announced and we just so happen to see two familiar comedians. Comedians Craig Robinson (Mouse), and Kumail Nanjiani (Ostrich) will lend their voices to some of the animals in the family flick.
