Over the weekend I had the opportunity to attend a virtual hangout with Katherine Heigl and Will Arnett, the voices behind two characters in the upcoming movie The Nut Job. Just another Saturday afternoon, right? They popped in after the L.A. premiere to talk with us about the film, being parents, and more.
In animated 3D, The Nut Job is set in fictional Oakton and follows Surly (voiced by Will Arnett), a mischievous purple squirrel. After a hot dog stand heist by Grayson (voiced by Brendan Fraser) and Andie (voiced by Katherine Heigl) goes wrong, Surly is banished from the park by Raccoon (voiced by Liam Neeson). With the help of his rat friend Buddy (voiced by Robert Tinkler), Surly plans a nut store heist of epic proportions.
