THE LION KING Live-Action Remake Adds Seth Rogen And Billy Eichner As Pumbaa and Timon

Disney and Jon Favreau's live-action remake of The Lion King has found its Timon and Pumbaa in the form of Parks and Recs actor Billy Eichner and Preacher showrunner Seth Rogen, respectively...

Jon Favreau's live-action adaptation of The Lion King continues its run of spot-on casting announcements, as The Wrap reports that Seth Rogen (Neighbors, The Green Hornet, Superbad) will be playing jovial warthog, Pumbaa, while Billy Eichner (Parks and Recreation, Difficult People) will bring life to his streetwise meerkat pal, Timon.

The pair were responsible for some of the funniest moments in the animated classic, as well as one of the most memorable songs: "Hakuna Matata."

The Lion King will also see James Earl Jones reprise the role of Mufasa from the original, while Donald Glover will provide the voice of Simba. We recently found out that Disney was courting Beyonce for the part of Nala, but haven't heard anything on that since.
