I’m about to put two names together that I really never thought I would.  Those two names are “Disney” and “Lewis Black”.  And I’m seriously in love.

Who else but Lewis Black could be Anger in the new Disney*Pixar film Inside Out, coming June 19, 2015

I have been a Lewis Black fan for a long time.  A few years ago my husband and I even had the opportunity to see him perform live here in Louisville.  Pretty sure I own all his albums, too.

So when I found out that he was going to voice the character of “Anger” in Disney•Pixar’s upcoming film Inside Out I thought “Wow, how amazingly perfect”.  I can’t picture anyone else being more spot-on than he for a role like that.  The rest of the casting was really nicely done, too: Joy (Amy Poehler), Fear (Bill Hader), Disgust (Mindy Kaling) and Sadness (Phyllis Smith).

Meet your emotions: Joy (Amy Poehler), Fear (Bill Hader), Disgust (Mindy Kaling), Anger (Lewis Black) and Sadness (Phyllis Smith) in Disney*Pixar's upcoming film Inside Out

From an adventurous balloon ride above the clouds to a monster-filled metropolis, Academy Award®-winning director Pete Docter (“Monsters, Inc.,” “Up”) has taken audiences to unique and imaginative places. In Disney•Pixar’s original movie “ Inside Out,” he will take us to the most extraordinary location of all—inside the mind.

Growing up can be a bumpy road, and it’s no exception for Riley, who is uprooted from her Midwest life when her father starts a new job in San Francisco. Like all of us, Riley is guided by her emotions. The emotions live in Headquarters, the control center inside Riley’s mind, where they help advise her through everyday life. As Riley and her emotions struggle to adjust to a new life in San Francisco, turmoil ensues in Headquarters. Although Joy, Riley’s main and most important emotion, tries to keep things positive, the emotions conflict on how best to navigate a new city, house and school.
