New Lego Cast Includes Will Ferrell As President Business, Liam Neeson As Bad Cop And More

Lord and Miller are deep at work on their Lego Movie, The Piece of Resistance. I like to imagine them up to their waste in colourful plastic bricks, barking direction at little bewildered minifigs. Real shame you can’t actually get movies made that way – I’d have finished my first Epic Trilogy by the time I was four.

The latest casting, as per Deadline, sees Will Ferrel, Liam Neeson, Nick Offerman and Alison Brie join the cast. Their character names can be pretty winning – Ferrell is to play President Business, Neeson will be his right-hand man, Bad Cop. We don’t know the name of Offerman’s character yet but he’s a pirate, so that’s okay, we can get pre-loving him just for that.

Nick Offerman as a pirate makes just as much sense as Nick Offerman as Axe Cop. He just seems to bring out the best in casting agents.

Alison Brie’s character is described as being part of the lead character Emmet’s “team” and having a powerful secret. Emmet, played by Chris Pratt, is mistaken for the all-powerful Master Builder, which gets the story rolling… I expect this “secret” could well be that Brie’s character is actually the one with those powers.

Piece of Resistance is due for release in February 2014. It’s going to be good.
