Albert Brooks also returns as the voice of Marlin, the famous father of Nemo, who searched for the his lost son along with Dory. Marlin accompanies forgetful Dory as she looks for her parents.
Dory's parents will be voiced by Diane Keaton, as Jenny [Dory's mom], and Eugene Levy as Charlie, Dory's dad.
Others in the cast include Willem Dafoe as Gill and Vicki Lewis as Deb and her sister Flo.
