Dennis the Dog (voice)
The Pythons will be voicing the key roles as a group of aliens who endow an earthling with the power to do "absolutely anything" to see what a mess he'll make of things - which is precisely what happens. There's also a talking dog named Dennis who seems to understand more about the mayhem that ensues than anyone else does.
"Contrary to reports, we are able to confirm that Robin Williams completed his voice recording for the role of Dennis," say Bill Jones and Ben Timlett in a statement. "Everyone on the Absolutely Anything team was distraught to hear the sad news and we send our condolences to Robin's family."
A comedy of intergalactic proportions
Great power. Total irresponsibility.

It took some time for Williams to get to a place where he and the filmmakers were happy with his performance.
"What was interesting was he started off doing it one way — tried it, it didn’t quite work," said Medavoy. "Then, the [filmmakers] came over from London. He tried it again. And then I was driving I think to one of my kids' basketball games and he called and he said, 'I just had an inspiration. I just figured out how to do it.'"
"It was a great idea," noted Medavoy. In order to make sure it made the film, Medavoy said that Williams shouldered the considerable expense to rent out a studio to record his role one final time. "It's in the movie."
