Bill Murray is in negotiations to reprise his role as the voice of Garfield in 20th Century Fox's sequel "Garfield 2"
Hollywood actor Bill Murray is still in negotiations to reprise his role as the voice of Garfield in 20th Century Fox's sequel "Garfield 2." Meanwhile, Breckin Meyer and Jennifer Love Hewitt have signed on to return, while Lucy Davis and Billy Connolly are also joining the film cast.
Hewitt's role is reported to be greatly reduced because she is filming the upcoming CBS series "Ghost Whisperer." Davis, on the other hand, will portray the animal lover Abby Westminster, a fashionable professional who has been brought in to try and trap Lord Dargis, played by Connelly, into revealing his evil plans. "Garfield 2," which is directed by Tim Hill, is slated for a summer 2006 release.
