Kerry Washington joins ‘Cars 3’


Actors Kerry Washington, Nathan Fillion and Lea DeLaria have joined the cast of upcoming 3D computer-animated comedy-drama film “Cars 3”. The three stars will join Owen Wilson, who will reprise his role as world champion racer Lightning McQueen, who is blindsided by a new generation of racers and is struggling to get back on track.

“We’re introducing some fun and really appealing characters in ‘Cars 3’, so we really wanted to find the right voices to help us breathe life into them. We hit a home run with this group. I couldn’t be happier,” director Brian Fee said.

Washington will voice Natalie Certain, a respected analyst who excels in her ability to evaluate a racer’s statistics, but she could be underestimating the importance of determination. “Cars 3” is slated to release on June 16 in India.
