In the footsteps of the talk show greats, genial stepbrothers Phineas Flynn and Ferb Fletcher will host their own animated/live action talk show, originating from a Danville set complete with a fake skyline, comfy guest chairs and the boys’ longtime friend, Isabella Shapiro-Garcia, as the stage manager. The mash-up show has already booked real life “A list” celebrity guests, a list that will rival morning, afternoon and late night talk show rosters. Movie star Jack Black (“Gulliver’s Travels”) is the inaugural guest on the wonderfully playful “Take Two with Phineas and Ferb,” premiering Friday, December 3 (between 9:00-9:15 p.m., ET/PT) on Disney Channel. It will also air on Disney XD.
The two-minute interview segments will encourage guests to mix it up, do the unexpected, disclose their fondest hopes and deepest thoughts and debate the implications of myriad subjects from super powers to juggling. Some segments will include musical performances. Advanced technology is a vital component of the “Take Two with Phineas and Ferb” production, allowing others, including Dr. Doofenshmirtz, the opportunity to interact with the guests.
In addition to Black, the booked guests on “Take Two with Phineas and Ferb” are: actor/comedian Andy Samberg (“Saturday Night Live”), actor Seth Rogen (“Green Hornet”), legendary skateboarder Tony Hawk, Grammy-winning recording artist Taylor Swift, the dean of talk shows, Regis Philbin (“Live with Regis and Kelly”), star of stage and screen Neil Patrick Harris, actress Emma Roberts (“Scream 4″), Grammy-winning producer Randy Jackson (“American Idol”) and talented comedian Cedric the Entertainer.
Created and executive-produced by Dan Povenmire and Jeff “Swampy” Marsh, the series is a production of Disney Television Animation. The voice cast includes: Vincent Martella, Thomas Sangster, Ashley Tisdale, Dee Bradley Baker, Alyson Stoner and Bobby Gaylor. The short form series “Take Two with Phineas and Ferb” is a production of Hieroglyphic Productions in association with Disney Television Animation.
