The voice cast for the upcoming animated prequel Night of the Living Dead: Origins is coming together. The latest report on the matter names six actors –  Jesse Corti, Danielle Harris, Bill Moseley, Joe Pilato, Alona Tal and Cornell Womack — but not the previously mentioned Mos Def. Hopefully that’s just an oversight. (The Hollywood Reporter)
