Adult Swim has announced that Emmy-nominated comedy actor Tracy Morgan (SNL, 30 Rock) will be stepping into the slap-happy tentacles of Early Cuyler in the 13th and final season of Squidbillies, premiering Sunday, November 7 at midnight ET/PT on Adult Swim. To spread the news, the channel has created an animated audition video which sneak peeks some S13 shenanigans and recasts a series of other Adult Swim voices in the role.
Season 13 of Squidbillies brings back Early, Rusty and Granny Cuyler for 10 brand new episodes of jackwoods backassery. Sorry – backwoods jackassery. The new season features all-new covers of the show’s opening theme song performed by Willie Nelson, Amanda Shires, Sturgill Simpson and more.
Morgan joins voice stars Daniel McDevitt (Rusty Cuyler), Dana Snyder (Granny Cuyler), Bobby Ellerbee (Sherriff), Patricia French (Lil Cuyler), Todd Hanson (Dan Halen), Mary Kraft (Krystal), Dave Willis (Deputy Denny) and Scott Hilley (Reverend) on the long-running Adult Swim toon, created by Dave Willis, Jim Fortier and Matt Maiellaro.
Morgan’s voiceover credits include Woof in Where My Dogs At?, Luiz in the Rio movies, Mr. Gristle in The Boxtrolls, Fox in Green Eggs and Ham, Captain Caveman in Scoob! and Spoonie Luv on Crank Yankers.
