Meet 'E.B.' (voiced by Russell Brand) - he's the teenage son of the Easter Bunny, and he's supposed to taking over the family business. Instead E.B. heads for Hollywood in pursuit of his dream of becoming a drummer!
Here he encounters Fred (James Marsden), an out-of-work slacker with his own lofty goals, who accidentally hits E.B. with his car. Feigning injury, E.B. manipulates Fred into giving him shelter, and Fred finds himself with the world's worst houseguest!
Blending state-of-the-art-animation with live-action comedy, Hop is brought to us by Tim Hill (director of the hugely popular Alvin and the Chipmunks) and produced by Chris Meledandri's Illumination Entertainment, makers of the mega-successful Despicable Me.
Apart from Russell Brand and James Marsden, the cast of top-notch talent includes Chelsea Handler, super-Brit Hugh Laurie and the living legend that is David Hasselhoff!
Screenplay: Cinco Paul, Ken Daurio, Brian Lynch
