Tackling a pair of "ancient roles."

by | February 13, 2008 | Comments

You’ll be seeing a lot of Hank Azaria in theaters next year — but don’t expect to recognize him.

The Hollywood Reporter has announced that Azaria has signed on for a pair of “ancient roles” — in Night at the Museum 2: Escape from the Smithsonian, he’ll be appearing as “an all-powerful Egyptian pharaoh named Kah Mun Rah,” while the Judd Apatow-produced, Harold Ramis-directed Year One, “set in biblical times,” will find Azaria playing the Old Testament prophet Abraham.

With both projects, Azaria’s in good company; the Museum sequel places him alongside Ben Stiller and Amy Adams, and his Year One co-stars include Jack Black and Michael Cera.

Before moving back in front of the cameras, Azaria will wrap up his run in the Broadway show The Farnsworth Invention on March 2.
