In Rock Dog, Izzard voices Angus, a British rock 'n' roll cat suffering with songwriter's block. This cool cat is under pressure from his record label to release a new hit song. J.K. Simmons is beloved by Marvel fans for bringing J. Jonah Jameson to life in Sam Raimi's Spider-Man trilogy. He also won an Academy Award for his role in Damien Chazelle's Whiplash. He also has several voice roles to his credit, including Ford Pines in Gravity Falls and Mayor Lionheart in Zootopia. Look out for him next as Commissioner James Gordon in 2017's Justice League.
As Bodi's father, traditional village guard Khampa, Simmons' character is motivated by love for his home and for his idealistic offspring. While he might be more disciplined in his approach to life, it's clear Khampa has a soft, sensitive side.
Perhaps best known as a comedian — and more recently known in animated circles as the voice of Anger in the Pixar film Inside Out — Lewis Black is taking on the role of the wolf and CEO of Linnux Industries. Linnux believes that Khampa's son Bodi will eventually lead him to a delicious smorgasbord of sheep.
Some might say that the role of the alpha wolf was tailor-made for Black, who is known for his aggressive, angry comic style. Linnux is sure to be a sly and powerful nemesis to Khampa and Bodi.
