Everyone’s favorite Lasagna-loving feline is back in theaters with “The Garfield Movie,” but don’t expect to hear the grump grumblings of Bill Murray. The cast of “The Garfield Movie,” not to be confused with 2004’s “Garfield: The Movie,” has an all-new roster of actors behind the iconic Jim Davis characters — and it’s full of familiar faces and comedy heavyweights.

In “The Garfield Movie,” Garfield (voiced by Chris Pratt) is removed from his comfort zone when he and his constant companion Odie (Harvey Guillén) are kidnapped by the evil cat Jinx (Hannah Waddingham) and forced to commit a daring milk heist (hey, they are cats after all). But worst of all – it puts Garfield in close proximity with his absentee father Vic (Samuel L. Jackson). Can they work through their own issues long enough to pull off the job? And more importantly – will Garfield ever return to his life of leisure and lasagna?”

So, if you’re wondering where you’ve heard that Garfield voice before or any of his other furry friends, here’s your complete guide to the “Garfield Movie” cast.
