Hear Haley Reinhart Voice Bill Murphy on “F Is for Family”

It was announced in late 2014 that Haley Reinhart was doing voice-over work, presumably for some sort of cartoon. Within a few months of the announcement, we learned the cartoon was indeed a brand new Netflix Original Animated Series produced by Bill Burr and Vince Vaughn, called “F Is for Family”. Haley voices a charcacter who is a young boy named Bill Murphy. A year later, the whole first season of the series was released December 18th, 2015 only on Netflix.

F is for Family features other voice-over stars and famous actors/comedians:

Since the show has been released it’s already drawn in a quickly growing fan base and has gotten many great reviews! Read some reviews below:

Haley did a Q&A under the #FisForFamilyAskHaley hashtag on Twitter the day the show came out, here are some noteworthy answers:

Q: Did it feel weird hearing your voice as a cartoon character at first?!

A: Everybody, myself included, were pretty shocked at how much I sounded like a lil boy haha..

Q: How long did it take to do voice overs for 6 episodes?

A: Got the bulk of it done pretty quickly & went back in months later – after the animation was done!

Q: Did you ever audition for another character before you got to voice Bill?

A: I actually auditioned for Charlie Brown.I believe that’s how they found me in the first place!

Q: Is it hard to stay in character/voice though out the episode?

A:  It was hard not to laugh after every take! Especially when I had to barf and stuff haha..

Q: Did you contribute any ideas to the show?

A: Well we got to do “wild lines,” where I could ad-lib a line here and there!

Bill Burr tweeted today that the show has not yet been renewed for a second season, but that they should be getting word soon.

Haley Reinhart to Star in New Original Netflix Animated Series in 2015!

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!
