Turning Red Voice Cast: Where You’ve Heard And Seen The Actors Before

Pixar has finally come out with a new movie, Turning Red, the story of a teenage girl who, every time she feels a strong emotion, turns into a giant red panda. With beautifully animated scenes and a great cast, Turning Red is a great addition to Disney+’s expanding collection of movies. 

But with such so many characters, one might wonder where you’ve seen the Turning Red cast before. From some newcomers in Hollywood to some legendary faces, here is why they might sound familiar – or where you could have seen them before.

Rosalie Chiang (Meilin “Mei” Lee) 

Mei is our protagonist in Turning Red, but you might be surprised to find out that she’s played by relatively newcomer in Hollywood, Rosalie Chiang. While Chiang has guest starred on the TV series, Clique Wars, and done a few film shorts, Turning Red is her first major motion pictures – and hopefully, the first of many.

The series is based on Doug Liman’s 2005 feature of the same name starring Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. In that film, the pair played a married couple that discovers each is leading a double life as an assassin after they’re contracted to take each other out.

Donald Glover and Maya Erskine will star in the title roles in the series version with the just-announced three to guest star. “PEN15” co-creator/star Erskine replaced “Fleabag” creator/star Phoebe Waller-Bridge who was originally set to star alongside her “Solo” co-star Glover.

MSI Optix MPG321QRF-QD Gaming Monitor Review: Dramatic Design, Solid Features

Published

on

By

Meanwhile, a handy joystick navigates an excellent on-screen display – it’s fast, well organized, and clearly displays key information and the impact to expect when you change different settings. The MSI’s final big feature is its most surprising – a KVM switch. These are usually found on business screens, and allow users to control two devices with one set of peripherals – handy for switching between a PC and laptop. 

There are good gaming credentials, too. The MSI’s 32in IPS screen has a 165Hz default refresh rate that overclocks to 175Hz and it supports FreeSync and G-Sync. Its 2,560 x 1,440 resolution is good for mainstream gaming too, but it’s not particularly crisp on a 32in screen – you can easily see the pixels if you look closely.

Build quality is middling as well. Its plastic rear feels weak, it’s not a tool-free build, and the monitor is heavy. LG’s rival UltraGear 32GP850 packs a punch against it too – it has the same core specification as the MSI alongside a 180Hz overclocked refresh rate, a sturdier, more mature design, and a cheaper $399/£349 price.

The MSI pairs its adaptable design with bold colors, though. This screen rendered 99 percent of the sRGB gamut with a monster 167.4 percent volume, and the default contrast ratio of 1,127:1 is good. Those figures mean colors are delivered with huge vibrancy and decent depth. 

There’s no clear ghosting or inverse ghosting when the panel runs at its default 165Hz refresh rate, and there’s hardly any halo around objects either. While this screen doesn’t have the speed to sate high-end esports players, it’s fast enough to tackle mainstream esports and single-player games. Moving to 175Hz only has a tiny impact, and we’d avoid the MPRT Sync option – it creates ghosting and darkens the display.

The MSI is a bit ordinary in some other areas, however. Its delta E of 4.14 is mediocre, and the color temperature of 6,143K is on the warm side. The peak brightness of 600cd/m² and lack of high-end dimming means this screen isn’t good enough for HDR gaming, either.

Tom Cruise As Iron Man AI Art Imagines MCU’s Lost Illuminati Member

Tom Cruise As Iron Man AI Art Imagines MCU’s Lost Illuminati Member

A new piece of AI-generated art imagines Tom Cruise as Iron Man in the MCU’s Illuminati, fulfilling the fan rumors that never came to pass.

A new piece of AI-generated art images Tom Cruise as Iron Man, the MCU Illuminati member that never came to pass. For many fans, it’s hard to imagine anyone other than Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark/ Iron Man. The actor first played the role in 2008’s Iron Man, a film that essentially kick-started the MCU as it exists today. Downey Jr. would go on to appear in two additional solo films and a host of Avengers team-up movies, ultimately saying goodbye to the role and the MCU in Avengers: Endgame, sacrificing himself to defeat Thanos (Josh Brolin).

Now that Downey Jr.’s Iron Man is absent from the MCU, many fans are wondering who will be next to take up the mantle. After the introduction of the multiverse in Loki and its further expansion in Spider-Man: No Way Home, rumors swirled before the release of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness regarding what characters might be making appearances. Among those highly rumored to be in the film was Cruise as Iron Man, a multiversal variant of the character who would have been part of the Illuminati. While fans were treated to John Krasinski as Reed Richards and the return of Patrick Stewart as Professor X in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, Cruise was notably absent from the ensemble.

In a new piece of art generated using Craiyon, an AI image creation tool, fans can see a rough approximation of what Cruise would have looked like as Iron Man. The images in the grid see Cruise donning the early versions of the Downey Jr. Iron Man suit, but also depict the actor more casually as Tony Stark in a suit and tie. Check out the AI-generated image below:

While the veracity of claims regarding whether Cruise was ever actually in talks to appear as Iron Man is questionable at best, the art does provide a surprisingly interesting rendition of what the Top Gun: Maverick star would have looked like in Downey Jr.’s shoes. As with most other AI-generated art, the facial structure leaves much to be desired, but, nevertheless, it’s easy to see why so many fans wanted Cruise to appear as Iron Man. It’s also notable that the images depict Cruise in what appears to be the Mark III or Mark IV armor, both relatively early iterations of the suit, instead of the nano-tech suit Stark wore in later films.


Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness ultimately delivered a handful of fun cameos, but some fans were evidently disappointed that Cruise’s Iron Man was not among them. With the multiverse now allowing for more creative one-off cameos than ever before, it’s still possible that the actor could appear as the character down the line, but considering Cruise’s commitments to the Mission: Impossible franchise, it’s unlikely to happen anytime soon. For now, it looks like AI art generators are the closest viewers will get to actually seeing Cruise as Iron Man.
