Tim Story’s ‘Tom and Jerry’ Adds Jordan Bolger, Rob Delaney, Ken Jeong & Pallavi Sharda to Cast

Jul 31, 2019

The upcoming live-action/hybrid feature adaptation of the animated series ‘Tom and Jerry’ now has four new cast members. So, let’s check them out!

The actors and their roles are below:

  • Jordan Bolger (‘Peaky Blinders,’ ‘The 100’) as Cameron
  • Rob Delaney (‘Catastrophe,’ ‘Deadpool 2’) as DuBros
  • Ken Jeong (‘The Hangover,’ ‘Crazy Rich Asians’) as Jackie
  • Pallavi Sharda (‘Lion,’ ‘Strike Back’) as Preeta

Michael Peña (‘Ant-Man and the Wasp,’ ‘Narcos: Mexico’) will play Terrance, the deputy general manager of the elegant Park Hotel. Chloë Grace Moretz (‘Kick-Ass,’ ‘Suspiria’) will play Kayla, a new temporary hire at the hotel where Jerry is staying. Worried for her job, she hires a broke alley cat, Tom, to get rid of the mouse. Colin Jost (‘Saturday Night Live,’ ‘‘How to Be Single’) is also in the film, in an unknown role.

Additionally, the studio is shooting the film in the real world, with 2D animated versions of the familiar cat and mouse pair. Since Tom and Jerry didn’t speak and relied on physical comedy to draw laughs, this version will stick to that style and not cast actors to voice the duo.

Moreover, Tim Story (‘Ride Along’ and 2000’s ‘Fantastic Four’ franchises) will direct. The screenplay is from Bryan Schulz & Cornelius Uliano (‘The Peanuts Movie’), and Kevin Costello (‘Brigsby Bear’). However, Collider states that writers Katie Silberman (‘Booksmart’) and April Prosser (‘The Last Summer’) are also credited.

Meanwhile, filming is currently underway in Warner Bros. Studios, Leavesden. Also, cinematographer Alan Stewart (Guy Ritchie’s ‘Aladdin’ and ‘The Gentlemen’) is part of the crew.

Warner Bros. will release the film on April 16th, 2021.
