The sequel to the animated hit "Madagascar"takes place somewhere in Africa this time. Interestingly enough, they've added more Black folk to the cast! Joining Jada Pinkett-Smith, Wanda Sykes and Cedric the Entertainer are Black-Eyed Peas front man Will.i.am, "View" co-host Sherri Shepherd and funnyman Bernie Mac.
In "Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa," Mac and Shepherd play the parents of Alex, the lion voiced by Ben Stiller. (Only in a cartoon, right?) Will.i.am is cast as a "watering hole lothario," according to reports. So is he a bar ho? We'll have to wait and see.
