Zachary Levi Cast in Alvin and the Chipumunks: The Squeakquel Sequel

Oh No: Zachary Levi Signs On for Chipmunks "Squeakquel"

It's not often that I see casting news that really makes me feel a sense of dread. I mean, sure, there are questionable decisions and projects that don't seem like they'll pan out quite right, but typically, I try to keep an open mind about these things.

Not this time, folks. Because, you see, Zachary Levi has been cast as the human lead in the Alvin and the Chipmunks sequel. Oh, I'm sorry. I mean Squeakquel.

Here's the thing: I really like Levi. I hope he has a good career, whether on TV (viva Chuck!) or on film. I'd love for more people to get exposed to his doofy style of humor. And from talking to Levi at various press events, I've gotten the sense that he's totally an '80s-nostalgia dude; it wouldn't shock me to find out he's a big Chipmunks fan from his youth.

But . . . no. No, no, no. Not like this, with the weird computer animation and the ruining-my-childhood aspects of it all. It just seems wrong.

Brighten my spirits, please. Could it somehow be so wrong it's right? I mean, Andy Samberg did Space Chimps and now he's on a boat, so maybe all hope is not lost . . .
