About Cars 2

Star racecar Lightning McQueen (voice of Owen Wilson) and the incomparable tow truck Mater (voice of Larry the Cable Guy) take their friendship to exciting new places in Cars 2 when they head overseas to compete in the first-ever World Grand Prix to determine the world's fastest car. But the road to the championship is filled with plenty of potholes, detours and hilarious surprises when Mater gets caught up in an intriguing adventure of his own: international espionage. Mater finds himself torn between assisting Lightning McQueen in the high-profile race and towing the line in a top-secret mission orchestrated by master British super spy Finn McMissile (voice of Michael Caine) and the stunning rookie field spy Holley Shiftwell (voice of Emily Mortimer). Mater's action-packed journey leads him on an explosive chase through the streets of Japan and Europe, trailed by his friends and watched by the whole world. The fast-paced fun includes a colorful new all-car cast, complete with menacing villains and international racing competitors.

John Lasseter returns to the driver's seat to direct this follow-up to his 2006 Golden Globe(r)-winning Cars. Cars 2 is co-directed by Brad Lewis, producer of the Oscar(r)-winning film Ratatouille, and produced by visual effects industry veteran Denise Ream (associate producer, Up; visual effects executive producer, Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith). The film hits the track on June 24, 2011, and will be presented in Disney Digital 3D(tm) and IMAX(r) 3D in select theaters.

About Paul Dooley

Legendary character actor Paul Dooley is likely best known for his unforgettable coming-of-age classic Breaking Away, his distracted yet sympathetic father in Sixteen Candles, or as a member of the Robert Altman acting company, where he was seen in A Wedding and A Perfect Couple, among many others.

He’s played the father of some of our finest actresses, including Helen Hunt, Toni Collette, Mia Farrow, and Julia Roberts (Runaway Bride). In addition to being Hollywood’s favorite Dads, Dooley has become one of the busiest actors working today; creating one memorable character after another in such films as Popeye, with Robin Williams, Paternity, with Burt Reynolds, Kiss Me Goodbye, opposite Sally Field and Jeff Bridges, Happy Texas, with William H. Macy, Insomnia, with Al Pacino, and Waiting For Guffman and A Mighty Wind, both with Christopher Guest.

Dooley has received two Emmy nominations for his work on HBO’s Dream On and on The Practice.  He starred in his own TV sitcom, Coming of Age (CBS), which kicked off a series of recurring roles on other TV shows, including ER, Grace Under Fire, My So-Called Life, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Once and Again and Curb Your Enthusiasm.

Dooley has appeared on Broadway (the original production of The Odd Couple, the Threepenny Opera), is a founding member of Second City, has appeared in over 500 TV commercials and nearly 1,000 radio spots. In recent years, Dooley has turned his talents to screenwriting and painting. Paul shares his home in Los Angeles, with his wife, Winnie Holzman, also a writer, who created My So-Called Life, and most recently, the Broadway musical Wicked.
