Idris Elba, JK Simmons and Tommy Chong to lend their voices to Disney's Zootropolis

Disney has added Idris Elba, JK Simmons and Tommy Chong to its impressive (and long) cast list for forthcoming film Zootropolis (known as Zootopia outside of the UK). The trio join the likes of Jason Bateman and Ginnifer Goodwin in the studio's animated adventure.

Back in May, Disney announced it had cast Horrible Bosses star Bateman and Once Upon A Time's Goodwin in the upcoming animal-based movie... and then did not really reveal much else. Despite revealing the lead actors and basic knowledge of the plot, little else was known about the film. That was until 25 October, when the studio confirmed more details about the project.

Beasts Of No Nation star Elba has come aboard to lend his voice to the project, set to play government-worker bull Chief Bogo, while Simmons has been cast as a lion, Mayor Leodore Lionheart. It has also been reported that Chong (of the Cheech & Chong variety) will voice hippy yak Yax.

The film centres on rabbit police officer Judy Hopps (Goodwin) who learns the hard way that being the first bunny in the precinct alongside her big and tough animal colleagues is not as fun as she first imagined. Determined to prove herself, Hopps jumps at the chance to solve one particularly hard case, even if that does mean she has to partner up with smooth-talking scam-artist fox, Nick Wilde (Bateman).

Other already confirmed cast members include Alan Tudyk (Suburgatory) and Octavia Spencer (The Help), who will be voicing Duke Weaselton and Mrs Otterton respectively, the former a small-time crime-committing weasel and the latter a desperate otter who turns to Hopps for help in getting to the bottom of her husband's disappearance. Shakira, Don Lake and Bonnie Hunt will also feature.

BEVERLY HILLS, CA--(Marketwired - October 22, 2015) - The new talk and variety show Almost Legal With Tommy Chong debuts on Friday, October 23rd at 8pm PDT / 11pm EDT on Host Tommy Chong of the legendary comedy duo Cheech & Chong created the show as a co-production with Chongson Inc. and FilmOn Networks with the title sponsor WeedMaps.

FastFunds Financial Corporation Announces Approval To Market "Cheech And Chong" And "Cheech Marin" Branded Gift Card Product Line

WEST PALM BEACH, FL / ACCESSWIRE / October 15, 2015 / FastFunds Financial Corporation (PINKSHEETS: FFFC) (the "Company" or "FastFunds") announced today it has been granted approval to market the "Cheech and Chong, Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong" brands on an exciting new "Gift Card" product line that will serve to complement the recently relaunched Tommy Chong Green Card program. With this announcement, FFFC now has two exciting product lines for participating dispensaries and canna-businesses offering a more comprehensive program to help them attract and retain their customers.

The Cheech and Chong, Tommy Chong and Cheech Marin "Branded Gift Cards" will be sold at participating Green Card dispensaries via FFFC's growing list of Independent Sales Representatives in legal cannabis states. The Gift Cards are designed to function in the same way they do at traditional retailers - providing dispensaries a unique product that effectively helps increase its customer base, when the customer gives the Gift Card to family and friends as a gift. The recipient of the Gift Card can use the card as they would cash, with the stored value they receive being made available for purchases at the dispensary where the Branded Gift Card was purchased.

"As the exclusive distributor for Tommy Chong in California, our priority is to help market Tommy Chong branded products for distribution within our network of direct-to-dispensary contacts within the state," commented Brian Vecchio, the exclusive distributor for Tommy Chong Green Card in California. "The addition of the Cheech and Chong branded gift cards completes the package for our customers providing the perfect "word of mouth" advertising solution to help dispensaries grow their customer base. What customer wouldn't want a friend to give them a Cheech and Chong branded card filled with cash to spend at their local dispensary?"

"The addition of this Cheech and Chong line will certainly give great momentum to our marketing efforts as we move forward with the new and improved Tommy Chong Green Card website," stated Kurt Martig, President of FFFC subsidiary Cannabis Merchant financial Solutions, Inc.

How Bad is Tommy Chong's Cancer?

In the past, Tommy Chong dismissed his cancer as nothing to worry about.  He promoted treating cancer with hemp oil.  It didn't work.

Currently, he's receiving chemo and will have a tumor removed shortly.

 Page Six reports that Tommy Chong could barely stand while accepting his lifetime achievement award at Hempfest in Vegas this past weekend.

If you watch the video below, you'll see that he had no problem standing and didn't seem weak for a 77 year old.  Yet, he did tell the crowd his cancer came back "big."

Cheech and Chong have canceled most of their tour dates. However, Tommy just filmed ten episode of a new talk show for Dish.
