Rick and Morty creators Justin Roiland and Dan Harmond spoke with HollywoodLife during the WarnerMedia upfronts earlier in the month. While Dan jokingly mentioned that actor John Lithgow passed on lending his voice for Season 4, they confirmed that Paul Giamatti, in fact, did agree to do some guest voice work after being asked potential guest stars for the upcoming season.
HARMOND: “Can we say, Paul Giamatti?”
ROILAND: “Yeah, Paul Giamatti, why not? No, he didn’t pass. He said yes. And you know what? God bless you, Paul Giamatti. You’re a hero, an angel.”
“We’re probably not allowed to say any of these things, I’m just realizing this right now…I’m recording him tomorrow [laughs].”
About a year ago, Rick and Morty got a 70-episode order which would likely mean another seven seasons for the mature cartoon series. Adult Swim also officially announced that Season 4 of Rick and Morty would begin airing this November.
Rick Sanchez, a depressed, alcoholic, abusive, madman (who also happens to be a genius scientist with the ability to travel through dimensions) returns to his daughter Beth’s life after two decades of being silent between the two. He finds her married to an incompetent, pathetic man named Jerry, and the couple has two teenage kids Summer and Morty. Rick makes Morty his sidekick and takes him on hilarious Interdimensional adventures, causing poor Morty to become steadily more miserable due to Rick’s insane, abusive, and careless attitude.
