One of them has to be the villain, right?!
When the long-awaited sequel to Pixar’s The Incredibles premieres this June, prepare to meet some new faces in addition to Metroville’s finest.
In Incredibles 2, the Parr family is back — Holly Hunter, Craig T. Nelson, and Sarah Vowell will all reprise their roles with young Huck Milner stepping in to voice Dash — as well as Samuel L. Jackson’s Frozone and writer/director Brad Bird’s endlessly meme-able fashion designer Edna Mode. But on Monday (January 22), Pixar announced the rest of the voice cast and unveiled their characters, and one of them is definitely the enigmatic villain we’ve heard so much about.
Better Call Saul star Bob Odenkirk will lend his voice to the character of Winston Deavor, a wealthy, larger-than-life businessman who runs a world-class telecommunications company alongside his genius sister, Evelyn. Winston is savvy, suave, and obsessed with Supers. According to the official character description, Winston “has been a supporter of Supers returning — all he needs is a hero (or three) to help him change public perception and bring them back into the sunlight.”
Evelyn Deavor will be voiced by Catherine Keener. Her brother may be the face of their telecommunications company, but Evelyn is the brains behind the operation. “She loves tinkering with tech,” the description reads, “and has never met a problem she can’t solve.” But the real question is, does she share her brother’s fascination with Supers?
