Fox draws up cast for ‘Good Vibes’

Brody, Gad, Thirlby to voice animated series

Fox has rounded out the cast for its upcoming animated high school project “Good Vibes.”

Project, from 20th Century Fox TV and Good Humor TV, will feature the voices of thesps Josh Gad (“Back to You”), Adam Brody (“The O.C.”), Debi Mazar (“Entourage”), Olivia Thirlby (“New York I Love You”), Alan Tudyk (“3:10 to Yuma”) and Jake Busey (“Broken”).

Thesps will table read the script in early November; project, which was picked up last month as a pilot presentation, is being developed for spring consideration.

“Pineapple Express” helmer David Gordon Green wrote the laffer, which centers on two high school surfer dudes who live near the beach in California. Good Humor’s Tom Werner and Mike Clements are exec producing, along with animator Brad Ableson and Green.

On “Good Vibes,” Gad will play Mondo, an out-of-shape, shaggy-haired teen looking to master surfing and win over Jeena (voiced by Thirlby) — who thinks of Mondo more like a brother.

Brody is onboard as Woodie, Mondo’s best friend, while Busey will play Turk, Mondo’s chief rival. Mazar plays Babs, Mondo’s mother. Tudyk will voice Lonnie, an old surf bum who doubles as the show’s narrator.

Gad’s other credits include “21” and “Mardi Gras,” while Brody recently shot “Jennifer’s Body.” Busey’s TV credits include “Shasta McNasty” and “Comanche Moon,” while Mazar was recently in “The Women.”
