We're preparing for the release of Inside Out by checking out the actors in other shows. - SahmReviews.com


I have to say that I’m positively giddy these days. Another new animated movie is coming out and it’s one that I’ve been waiting for… forEVER. Okay, not forever. But at least since I read about it. Disney Pixar’s Inside Out is destined to be a huge hit when it opens in theaters on June 19th. While attending the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration (DisneySMMC) over Mother’s Day weekend, we had the opportunity to hear the film’s producer, Jonas Rivera, speak. THEN we saw an unfinished version that equated to about 3/4 of the movie. As I watched it, I could visualize the characters and hear both their personalities and characters coming through the big screen. Amy Poehler as Joy, Lews Black as Anger. You get the idea. Between the two activities at DisneySMMC, it was enough to make me even more anxious for the movie to release.

To add kindling to the fire, I’ll be attending the red carpet premiere in a few weeks. I’ll be sharing more details about that soon, but that’s another post for a different day. Suffice to say, I’m super excited to see Inside Out in its entirety. In preparation, I thought I would revisit the actors in some of their other shows because each brings some amazing talent to the party. Here’s what I’ll be binge-watching on Netflix to see the Inside Out actors:

Amy Poehler is the voice of Joy in Disney Pixar Inside Out. Catch her in Parks & Rec on Netflix. - SahmReviews.com

Amy Poehler (Joy)

Amy can be found in animated form on Netflix in FreeBirds, but her most notable series has to be Parks and Recreation. I think I’ve watch a total of one episode of it. Shame on me. After hearing that Mayfair Games created a board game specifically for the show, I should have logged on and started watching.

The casting of Anger in Disney Pixar Inside Out is perfect. Lewis Black nailed it! Catch his stand-up on Netflix. - SahmReviews.com

Lewis Black (Anger)

If you’ve never watch his stand-up routines, then it’s time to add it to your watch list. He’s positively hilarious. Just don’t plan on watching it when the kids are around. His personality comes through LOUD and clear as Anger in Inside Out.

See the people behind the voices of Inside Out Sadness (Phyllis Smith) and Disgust (Mindy Kaling) by watching The Office on Netflix. SahmReviews.com

Phyllis Smith (Sadness) and Mindy Kaling (Disgust)

Despite the popularity of The Office, I’ve never watched it. I know, I know. It’s a classic. I missed it in prime time. Thank goodness for Netflix. Guess now is the time for me to tune in and see what kind of characters Phyllis Smith and Mindy Kaling played during their long span on the series.

In addition to voicing Fear in Disney Pixar Inside Out, you can stream Bill Hader on Netflix. - SahmReviews.com

Bill Hader (Fear)

It takes a funny guy to make fear not so scary. Bill Hader handles is perfectly. I’ve seen him plenty of times on Saturday Night Live (which can also be found on Netflix streaming), but also plan to check out Adventureland to see him in something other than stand-up sketch comedy.

Richard Kind is the voice of Bing Bong in Disney Pixar Inside Out. Stream him on Netflix in other features! - SahmReviews.com

Richard Kind (Bing Bong)

This guy never fails to amuse. While Spin City, one of his more noteable roles is only available on Netflix DVD, he has plenty of other works available for streaming. “Help me Help You” and “Dealin’ with Idiots” are just a few.

Before voicing the father on the animated film Inside Out, Kyle MacLachlan was in other noteworthy shows including Agents of Shield and Twin Peaks. - SahmReviews.com

Kyle MacLachlan (Dad)

He can be found in Portlandia along with a few other shows on Netflix, but I love watching him on Marvel: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Fantastic actor! On a side note, he was Special Agent Dale Cooper in Twin Peaks back in the early 1990s. You may want to catch up with that on Netflix because it will be back with new episodes in 2016! That’s right… Twin Peaks is coming back. Catch the two seasons on Netflix while you can!

Did you know you can stream Diane Lane movies on Netflix? You can! Then you can hear her in Inside Out. - SahmReviews.com

Diane Lane (Mom)

This award-winning actress has a long list of credits. A Walk on the Moon and Lonesome Dove are two that are available to stream on Netflix.

Whether you are like me and interested in seeing the faces behind the voices of the upcoming Inside Out movie or if you’re just looking for something new to watch from some awesome actors, Netflix has you covered.

Which actor from Inside Out are you most excited to hear convey an emotion?

  1. It hurts me that you haven’t watched The Office. It’s so hilarious!! I love this outstanding cast – it’s sure to make the movie a winner.

    1. I know. It’s really sad, isn’t it? The Office looks awesome. There are a few shows that I didn’t catch when they first came out then either watched the entire thing in syndication (Scrubs). One that we started a few seasons in was Big Bang Theory. Even with a DVR, we couldn’t record everything. Thank goodness Netflix has so much to watch!

  2. I love Amy Poehler. I definitely need to catch up on watching her recent stuff. It’s rainy here, so we were thinking that this is a good day to watch movies.

  3. Wow, thanks for the detailed background information on this movie. I love checking out what actors have been in, in the past. Have fun on your trip too!

  4. I hadn’t actually heard about this, but I’m familiar with most of the actors and actresses you mentioned, and it seems like they are appropriate ones for the assigned emotions.

  5. This sounds like a fun movie! I think we can all relate to these emotions, and I can’t wait to see how they are portrayed on screen.

  6. I actually do not watch TV and I do not have Netflix. I have a sneaking suspicion that I would love the movie Inside Out. There will have to be some true acting in that one!!

  7. You must be so excited to be attending the red carpet! I really have to catch up on my movie watching. Guess I’ll be on Netflix all weekend 😉

  8. I’m excited to hear about new episodes in the Twin Peak series. I watched that back when it was airing live and it was so spooky and quirky! Loved it!

    1. You know, that’s actually one series I never watched. I remember it was a love/hate thing. People that watched it both raved and complained about it. LOL. I was surprised to hear it’s coming back!

  9. We watch the dubbed version here, but they really take a lot from the original voice actors and do an amazing job becoming the character. Can’t wait to watch!
