No reason to talk further about Anne Hathaway’s job at hosting the Oscars so we’ll give a plug to her upcoming role in Rio, where she voices a Jewel, a female blue macaw, alongside Jesse Eisenberg, as the voice of Blu, the male blue macaw. The movie is set to open in theaters on April 15th. Some of the others involved are George Lopez, Tracey Morgan, Jamie Foxx, Jane Lynch, and Leslie Mann. More info at the Rio official website.
Blu (Jesse Eisenberg) is a rare species of blue macaw resident at a bookstore in Moose Lake, Minnesota, who is the last of his kind. When scientists learn that another macaw was spotted in South America and that the macaw, Jewel (Anne Hathaway) is female, they take him out of Minnesota and send him to Rio de Janeiro to meet her. While there, he learns to confront his fear of flying in order to win her heart. Wiki
