James Marsden Joins I Hop
He's in the Easter Bunny comedy

25 January 2010  |  Written by James White  |  Source: The Hollywood Reporter

We tried to forget it was happening, we really did, but it's not going away: bunny punny title I Hop, the tale of a slacker accidentally running over the Easter Bunny, has scooped up another cast member: James Marsden.

He's signed on to play the slacker in question, a man named Fred who injures the beast and is forced to take him in and help him heal. Turns the not-so-mythical rabbit is the world's worst houseguest, but somehow they both learn to accept responsibility.

Russell Brand is voicing the Bunny and Tim Hill, who brought the world Alvin And The Chipmunks is unleashing his CG/live-action blending skills once more.

As we pointed out last time we reported on it, the central title gag's a little Americano-centric. Any ideas for replacements? Funny Bunny? Unlucky Rabbit's Foot? A prize of not getting the DVD when it's finally released to the best entry.
