Bill Hader's "Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs" is aimed squarely at a demographic with which he is about to become very familiar: The Tulsa native and his wife are expecting the birth of their first child this month.
Hader — born at St. Francis Hospital, growing up to attend Patrick Henry Elementary, Edison Middle School and Cascia Hall — told People magazine last month that his filmmaker wife Maggie Carey is due to deliver by the end of September.
"I'm really excited," Hader told the magazine. "I think it's going to be awesome."
The actor, who has performed in several of Hollywood's biggest film comedies in recent years ("Tropic Thunder" and "Superbad" among others), should be prepared for the late hours that come with fatherhood. His fifth season of "Saturday Night Live" premieres next week, in a Sept. 26 show hosted by Megan Fox and featuring U2 as musical guest.
"So everybody will have to understand when I'm really tired," Hader jokingly told the people at People. "Kidding — I'm actually handling it well."
Hader is the son of longtime Tulsans Bill and Sherri Hader, who raised their son here with his sisters, Kara and Katie.
