The 'Sausage Party' Voice Cast Is Comedy Gold

You might be familiar with the phrase "sausage party," but probably not in the way that it's used in Seth Rogen's new film. Sausage Party, in theaters Aug 12, takes place inside a grocery store where all the food items dream of being purchased by a human. But after realizing the horror of what people do with food after leaving the store, a sausage named Frank goes on a daring journey to save his food friends. Frank is played by Rogen, and the rest of the Sausage Party voice cast is equally hilarious.

All of the main actors are well-known figures in comedy, and many have previously collaborated with Rogen. This is an important detail, because it means that the cast members are able to interpret the unique brand of humor produced by Rogen and his writing partner Evan Goldberg. It's the same kind of humor that characterized Superbad , Pineapple Express, This is The End, and The Interview — raunchy, unfiltered, and highly creative. It takes a certain kind of actor to be able to pull off grocery-themed sexual innuendo jokes (including plenty of f-bombs), but the Sausage Party team has assembled a vocal cast who can do just that. Here are the hilarious A-listers whose voices you can expect to hear in Sausage Party.
