Thomas Mann (“Kong: Skull Island”) has joined the cast of Disney’s upcoming live action version of “Lady And The Tramp.” Mann will be playing one of the human characters in the role of Jim Dear, husband of Darling Dear and owner of Lady. This new version based on the classic animated Disney film will premier on Disney’s upcoming streaming service in 2019.
Thomas Mann is set to join Disney’s live-action adaptation of “Lady and the Tramp” in the role of Lady’s human owner, Jim Dear.
Tessa Thompson is on board to play Lady and Justin Theroux will voice the Tramp. Kiersey Clemons is also set to play Mann’s wife, Darling.
The majority of the cast will play CGI characters, similar to Disney’s wildly successful adaptations of “Beauty and the Beast” and “Jungle Book,” though Mann and Clemons’ characters will be live-action roles. “Lady and the Tramp” tells the story of an American Cocker Spaniel named Lady who lives with an upper-middle-class family, but is set astray when the family has a baby. Lady ends up meeting a mongrel known as the Tramp on the streets. They embark on a romantic journey and eventually fall in love.
