John Lithgow in Pitch Perfect 3

The cast of the first Pitch Perfect already had quite the ensemble with Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson, Brittan Snow and Anna Camp leading the Bellas, with Adam DeVine, Skylar Astin and Ben Platt playing Treblemakers, not to mention Elizabeth Banks and John Michael Higgins as the dedicated a capella commentators. Pitch Perfect 2 beefed up things ever so slightly with Hailee Steinfeld and Chrissie Fit joining the ranks of the Bellas. And now another fantastic addition is coming to Pitch Perfect 3.

John Litghow has a decorated career includes Footloose, Harry and the Hendersons, The World According to Garp, Terms of Endearment,The Pelican Brief, the NBC series 3rd Rock from the Sun, Shrek, the underrated Orange County, Rise of the Planet of the Apes, the Showtime series Dexter, This Is 40 and more recently a Golden Globe nominated turn as Winston Churchill in The Crown.
