The voice cast of Exodus Film Group's animated project "Igor" has got more lights on as Jay Leno and Jennifer Coolidge have both struck deal to join the list. Joining the likes of Christian Slater, Steve Buscemi, John Cleese, Jeremy Piven, and Molly Shannon, the two will voice Malaria's Machiavellian ruler King Malbert and the village vixen Sybill, respectively, with Slater as the title character.

"Jay and Jennifer each have unique voices and brilliant comedic timing, both of which are ideal for the film," the flick's director Tony Leondis commented. "We're thrilled to have them join an already stellar voice cast."

A playfully irreverent comedy which brings a new twist to the classic monster genre, "Igor" concerns a mad scientist's lab assistant who aspires to become a great scientist in his own right and win the first prize at the annual Evil Science fair. Chris McKenna is penning the script with Chris Robinson overseeing on behalf of The Weinstein Company, which will distribute the movie in North America and most foreign territories.
