Dead men tell no tales — but cartoon pirates sure do! Disney Junior's smash morning hit Jake and the Never Land Pirates kicks off its second season February 20 (8:30am/7:30c) with a slew of new swashbucklers voiced by well-known names.
Look for movie star Josh Duhamel as landlubber Captain Flynn, who "ends up shipwrecked in the middle of the desert with a first mate who's a camel named Camille," says exec producer Rob LaDuca. "Josh is doing a great job for us. He really knows how to put on the pirate." So, apparently, does Sharon Osbourne of The Talk. She'll turn up as Captain Hook's feisty mother, Mama Hook. "She was once queen of the Never Sea and could find any treasure she wanted, but her son turned out to be quite a bumbler," says producer and story editor Mark Seidenberg. "She's here to make him a better captain."
Also coming aboard is Malcolm in the Middle vet Jane Kaczmarek as the flame-tressed pirate Red Jessica, and White Collar's Tiffani Thiessen as reformed baddie Misty the Wonderful Witch. And the star search continues. "We're looking to cast someone really cool for our next new character, Beatrice Le Beak, a lady pirate even sneakier than Hook," says LaDuca. "The kids are going to love her!"
