Nickelodeon’s “Sanjay & Craig” to Co-Star the Voice of Chris Hardwick

Sanjay and CraigSo, there’s a new cartoon series coming up on Nickelodeon called Sanjay and Craig, about a boy and his snake, and I’m warning you to remember that it’s a kids’ show and keep it clean. Anyway, the pedigree is pretty impressive, with The Adventures of Pete and Pete‘s Will McRobb and Chris Viscardi teamed with creators Jim Dirschberger, Jay Howell, and Andreas Trolf to executive produce the series and a voice cast that includes 30 Rock‘s (and Phineas and Ferb‘s) Maulik Pancholy, Arrested Development‘s Tony Hale, Freaks and Geeks‘ Linda Cardellini, The Big Bang Theory‘s Kunal Nayyar, voice wizard Grey DeLisle, and, in the co-starring role of Craig, ostensibly the snake of the pair… our own Chris Hardwick.

Yes, we want to see this. Now. But we have to exhibit patience, because the cast of the show, which was announced as in development last August, was just unveiled today at the network’s upfront announcement, where they also announced the scheduling of the previously-announced Monsters vs. Aliens series, a third season pickup of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and more of The Legend of Korra, SpongeBob SquarePants, The Fairly OddParents, and others. But we’re stoked about our boss getting to do another cartoon voice, so, yeah, that.

Oh, and your Hardwick Trivia for the Day: Chris and Linda Cardellini worked together on another show. Can you guess which… oh, okay, I’ll tell you, it was UPN’s Guys Like Us, 1998-99. They have both obviously gone on to bigger things.

    Would you compare Sanjay and Craig to SpongeBob SquarePants? My kids would definitely love it…

    How ironic, considering Chris’ experience with Wil Wheaton’s giant python (the snake, not his dong).

    He’s gonna voice that snake right out of the terrarium.

  4. I’m just imagining Hardwick doing an impression of Kaa from the Jungle book and I like what I’m hearing.

    … Now I’m imagining Jonah and Matt as Bageera and Baloo. Dammit.

  5. No a, that is the hammer.

    The snake is his penis

  7. I don’t know why, but, based on the promo image, Chris seems perfect! :)

    So Chris Hardwick has his thrice-a-week podcast, he’s touring on weekends to do stand-up, he’s overseeing a digital empire, he’s hosting half the shows on basic cable and half on the internet, plus the once-in-a-blue-moon movie role and now he’s taking on a second voice acting gig (he’s still on “Korra,” yes?).

    Admit it, Hardwick, you’re doing your damnedest to steal the “King of All Media” title from Howard Stern, aren’t you? You’re trying to be the NEW “Hardest Working Man in Showbiz,” sort of like James Brown but skinny, white and breathing. Should Matt throw a cape over you at the end of live podcasts just so you can throw it off and keep going?

    Just make sure you find time to sleep, mon bon homme. You’re no good to anyone, least of all yourself, if you have an aneurysm.
