Looks like Albert Brooks is going to 'just keep swimming'! Deadline reports that the actor has signed on to reprise his role as the voice of the overprotective clown fish 'Marlin' in Disney/Pixar's upcoming animated sequel FINDING NEMO 2.
Brooks joins previously announced returning star Ellen Degeneres, who voiced the lovable 'Dory' in the first film, and the movie's original director Andrew Stanton.
The best-selling author of 'Twenty Thirty: The Real Story of What Happened to America,' is currently working on his next novel. Brooks received an Academy Award nomination in 1987 for his role in Broadcast News.
His voice acting credits also include recurring guest voices for the animated television series The Simpsons, including Russ Cargill in The Simpsons Movie. Additionally, he has written and directed several comedy films such as Lost in America (1985) and Defending Your Life (1991)
