Everything We Know About The King Of The Hill Reboot

While not much has been brought to the public yet, here is everything we know about the KOTH reboot.

Originally airing from 1997-2010 over 13 seasons, King Of The Hill left its devoted audience craving more. Over the past decade, fans have been speculating and fantasizing about what Arlen life has been like since the final scene wrapped. The answer to that question may finally be upon the horizon as series creators Mike Judge and Greg Daniels have been reported to be reviving the series by The Hollywood Reporter. The duo is set to oversee the creation and production of the revival under their new animation company, Bandera Entertainment. This announcement follows the revival of Judge’s other popular series Beavis and Butthead, which has been picked up for a new movie coming to paramount+ set in 2022. The movie is set to also be followed by the TV series reboot, however, a time frame for this has yet to be announced.

While Judge has been rather vocal about the return of Beavis and Butthead, it would seem the King Of The Hill project is still being kept close to the chest. Reports of the reboot first came about during a Reddit AMA in 2021 with show writer Brett Forrester when he was asked if there are any plans on a possible King Of The Hill return. Forrester told the Redditor, “I am sure Greg Daniels and Mike Judge will murder me for sharing this but… HELL YES. They are in hot negotiations to bring back King of the Hill.” It would seem as though all the stars seem to be aligning and aligning very soon. While it is still unclear whether or not the show’s return will be set in 2022, it seems rather likely considering Judge’s similar move with Beavis and Butthead, as well as the trend brought about by the most recent South Park special on Paramount+.

While Judge and Garcia are seemingly keeping the majority of announcements under wraps at the moment, we are eagerly waiting for an official statement on the reboot of one of our favorite series. What do you think will be the setting of the KOTH reboot, let us know down below!

Beavis and Butthead Returns

Series creator Mike Judge has confirmed the return of Beavis and Butthead.

Show creator Mike Judge has confirmed on Twitter the metal-loving duo of Beavis and Butthead will be making a triumphant return to the big screen in 2022 with a follow-up movie to the 1996 cult classic, Beavis and Butthead Do America. The film is set to be released on Paramount+ and will feature middle-aged versions of the dynamic-duo. Paramount+ is the same streaming service that ordered a new South Park special at the tail end of 2021 feature “adult versions” of all the main characters.

Judge accompanied his announcement with two character design sketches for Beavis and Butthead (below) with the caption, “They need some time to get back in shape.”

This announcement follows one made by Judge back in 2020 describing his new deal with Comedy Central to seemingly reboot the series for two more seasons set in the modern era. With no date yet announced for either project, we eagerly look forward to seeing our two favorite degenerates on the screen once again.

Will the Beavis and Butthead movie be a precursor for the rumored new seasons on Comedy Central? Let us know what you think down below as well as in the WSRR Discord server!

King of The Hill Movie?

Is there a King of The Hill movie on the way?

On December 3rd 2020 the King of The Hill Facebook page uploaded a photo of a fan made KOTH movie poster. The poster features a live action cast of the animated characters Hank, Dale, Bill, Boomhauer, and Khan. While a KOTH movie has been a topic widely discussed in recent years, since the upload the King of The Hill community has been quite vocal in voicing their opinions on the cast choice of the theoretical film. While the possibility of Mike Judge signing off on a live action King of The Hill movie is still up in the air, we’ve complied some alternate casting choices that may fit the bill a litter more accurately!

Bill Dauterive

While the artist who composed the theoretical movie poster chose David Koechner to play the role of army barber Bill Dauterive, we here at StylesRebelRadio.com believe the right casting choice may have been right under our nose. Voice and veteran actor Stephen Root who provides the voice of Bill in the animated series is seemingly the perfect choice. With roles under his belt in films such as Dodgeball and Drillbit Taylor , Root is perfect for paying the role of the sympathetic, awkward friend. Not to mention there is absolutely no need to worry about recreating the well known voice!

Honorable mention to John C. Reilly.

Jeff Boomhauer

In the case that is the fast yet smooth talking ladies man, Boomhauer, we believe they hit the nail on the head with Matthew Mcconaughey! Who else could pull off the role of speaking absolute southern twanged nonsense and make it charming! We already know Mcconaughy is willing to go to any lengths necessary appearance wise to fill his role and while the voice not be exactly like the animated counterpart, we are sure Mcconaughey’s natural drawl and ability to ramble will fit the bill alright, alright, alright!

Kahn Souphanousinphone

For every great protagonist there has to be an equal foil. When it comes to the simple down home lifestyle Hank Hill lives by Kahn is the perfect foil. The over the top pompous, annoying, next door neighbor to the Hill family requires an actor with a wide range of emotions. While the proposed Ken Jong is not a bad choice by any means, for the role of Kahn we are looking for someone who can pull off the stern annoyed neighbor quality but transition to the over the top persona Jong is known for. For that, we are choosing John Cho. Cho is no stranger to the over the top antics frequented by Kahn, as showcased in the Harold and Kumar series! Cho also possesses the ranger however to pull off the stern, aggravated neighbor who is always ready with a quick qip as shown in his role as Sulu in 2009s Star Trek.

Dale Gribble

Once again we have to agree it with the proposed line up, Bill Hader for Dale Gribble seems like the absolute perfect fit. While other proposed casting choices include the likes of Neil Patrick Harris or Steve Buscemi as the role of Dale, something is seemingly left to be desired. Surely Mr. Buscemi or NPH would be able to make a memorable and fitting role as the man known as Rusty Shackleford, SNL legend Bill Hader without a doubt could go line for line with Dale Gribble. With the physical appearance to fit the part, Hader’s extensive library of impressions would seal the deal for a live action Dale Gribble.

Hank Hill

Now for the man of the hour! Hank Rutherford Hill is the stern, hardworking, blue collar main character of the King of The Hill series! Ironically this is the entry we have the most opposition too. Granted the most known and beloved character is typically the hardest to cast. The proposed choice, Tom Hanks, most likely chosen for his calm, stern demeanor and vague resemblance to Hank seems like a lazy and over exhausted pick. After scouring the internet for a more suitable live action adaptation, we are prepared to offer a fresh alternative to the table that we have not seen anywhere else.

Dennis Quaid is our pick to poetry Hank Hill. When deciding upon this casting, we broke down Hank Hill into three basic characteristics. First we looked at his appearance, Hank is a man plain and simple. Your stereotypical working and family man, Blue jeans, a tee shirt, and short respectable haircut. Dennis Quaid fits that bill fairly well. A harkening back to actors of the past Mr. Quaid has what we can best describe is the face of a man. Secondly, Hank Hill’s very distinct and impressionable voice. While not exactly a difficult impression to do, perhaps one of the hardest to master. Enter Dennis Quaid’s ability to study and recreate voices to near perfection! Don’t believe me, take his performance as the legendary Jerry Lee Lewis in Great Balls of Fire for example! Last but certainly not least, Hank Hill is a father. I mean, just look at him. Dennis Quaid just looks like your stereotypical dad. Need more convincing, check out his performance as the strict yet comedic father in the film Yous, Mine, and ours.

That’s our list! Let us know what you think and who you would cast to play all the characters in a King of The Hill live action film! Make sure to check out similar blogs on StylesRebelradio.com under The Rebel Blogs!
