Albert Brooks Signs on for 'Finding Nemo 2'

Living comedy legend Albert Brooks has agreed to reprise his role as the voice of a talking fish called Marlin in the upcoming sequel to Pixar's Finding Nemo. Deadline reports that Brooks signed "a fat deal" to return. Ellen DeGeneres and original director Andrew Stanton signed on last year, but Brooks took longer to convince due to his busy career as a novelist (he's currently working on a second novel) and actor (appearing in high-profile movies like Drive and This Is 40). The most exciting part about Brooks doing Finding Nemo 2 is it means he'll probably make another awesome late night talk show appearance.
