John Oliver Will Play Zazu in the New ‘Lion King’ Movie

Disney’s upcoming Lion King, live-action adaptation is shaping up nicely.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, comedian and Last Week Tonight host John Oliver has signed on to voice the parrot Zazu.

Oliver is joining an already stacked cast—even though casting is still in its early stages: Donald Glover (Simba), Seth Rogen and Billy Eichner (Timon and Pumbaa) and, of course, James Earl Jones (Mufasa) are also on board.
