But here’s the catch…she will be playing a little boy named Bill!
Haley broke the exciting news on her Instagram account this week:
“Beyond excited guys! I can finally share that I will be making my VoiceOver debut in the @netflix original animated series titled, “F Is For Family!!!” Produced by the amazing #BillBurr #VinceVaughn #PeterBillingsley & #MichaelPrice We’ve already finished recording season one & it will debut same time next year – 2015! I will be playing the little boy in the family, Bill! Huge thanks to everybody involved.. Thanks for welcoming me with open arms! #FIsForFamily #Netflix #Gaumont #VoiceOver #WrapParty“
“F Is for Family” is slated to hit Netflix sometime in 2015, starting out with 6 episodes. Bill Burr (who you may recognize from Breaking Bad) is known for his edgy stand-up comedy, so expect the same from his up and coming new show. Some people may be surprised Haley is going to play a boy, but it is not unusual for a woman to voice a young boy for television. Many famous boy cartoon characters are voiced by women (Bart Simpson, Jimmy Neutron, Timmy Turner, etc.) Rumor has it, Haley’s character Bill will even sing from time to time, and more than likely is going to have a potty mouth!
Netflix said, “No-holds-barred, do whatever you want to do. It’s a cartoon about a family that looks like the normal Rockwell painting but it’s the real deal.” “Needless to say, the F word flies around quite a bit.” Those who are working on the show are having a lot of fun creating it, as you could imagine, with Netflix giving them the go-ahead to do whatever they want. One of the writers David Richardson said it’s the most fun he’s had in a writer’s room in 10 years. Nothing but laughs for the writers every single day.
This is great to hear. This is an awesome new role for Haley to pick up! Her resume is endless and continues to grow, and her talent is undeniable!
We cannot wait to watch F Is for Family, and see/hear Haley’s new cartoon character!
