I’m going to put it out there. I love me some Judy Greer. She’s pretty much fantastic in everything she does. From Arrested Development to Archer, she’s a brilliant comedic star. However, she’s taking on a more dramatic role that leaves me feeling a little conflicted.
In the upcoming film, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, Judy Greer is putting on a motion capture suit to play the role of Cornelia, a chimpanzee love interest for Cesar.
Vulture has the exclusive on the news and this quote from Judy Greer which makes her sound absolutely perfect for the role:
I married a man who … I’m gonna use the word obsessed. He is obsessed with Planet of the Apes,” she laughed. “We had a chimp husband-and-wife cake topper at our wedding. At the cocktail hour, we played Planet of the Apes and Rise of the Planet of the Apes on two separate televisions in the bar area. And on the wedding gift I bought him, a vintage Rolex, I had it engraved, ‘Ape shall not kill ape.’ I was then told that, technically, it’s ‘Ape shall never kill ape,’ but there wasn’t enough space for engraving purposes.”
So are you ready for Chimp on Chimp love in the sequel to 2011’s Rise of the Planet of the Apes?
