We have an exclusive featurette from Hop, which is currently available on Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD, just in time for Easter this weekend. Hank Azaria provides the voices of both Carlos and Phil in this Universal Pictures comedy, and you can take a look at one of his recording sessions in this excerpt from the special features.
He was destined to be the Easter Bunny, but all he wanted to do was rock! When teenage E.B. (voiced by Russell Brand) leaves for Hollywood in pursuit of his dream to become a rock star drummer, he meets Fred (James Marsden), an out-of-work slacker with his own lofty goals. Together the two encounter a series of hilarious mishaps and misadventures and in the end help each other recognize the importance of family.
