Destined blockbuster "Kung Fu Panda 2" hits theaters next week, and as with most successful Hollywood franchises, the star-studded cast, which includes Angelina Jolie, Seth Rogen and Dustin Hoffman, have returned to reprise their roles and make bank at the weekend box office. Jack Black is back, too, of course. We don't think there was ever any question whether he would again lend his voice to the lead character, Po; his pipes made the character so lovable in the first place. (And any time the entertainment biz tries to pull off a voice-acting switcheroo, the result is usually horribly, unwatchably wrong.)
But, by the looks of some of our favorite A-list ladies, Black's job security maybe wasn't always such a lock. Why else would these 13 sexy celebrities appear to be auditioning for the role of the cartoon's panda protagonist? See what we mean after the jump.
