Officer Earl Devereaux is a major character in Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs and Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2.

Earl is the only police officer of Chew & Swallow (formerly Swallow Falls).

He is voiced by Mr. T in the 1st film and Terry Crews in the 2nd and last film, who also portrays Julius Rock in Everybody Hates Chris and Terry Jeffords in Brooklyn Nine Nine (which also starred Andy Samberg).

In Japanese dub from the movie he is voiced by Toshiyuki Morikawa, who also voiced Emmet Brickowski in The Lego Movie, Horton the Elephant in Horton Hears a Who, and Nick Wilde in Zootopia.

Appearance

Earl is a tall, and very muscular black man who is incredibly athletic and well built, although he has rather short legs when compared to the rest of his body. He wears a blue officer's uniform with short sleeves and short pants, along with white sneakers and socks. His officer's cap also has a gold badge on it.

During his time working in a bakery, he donned on a "pretty" pink dress and cupcake hat (which appeared to be the bakery's uniform) and was forced to shave off his rugged beard and mustache. However he quickly grew it back once he quit his job and donned on his old uniform once again despite not being an officer anymore.

Personality

Earl is a very athletic and overprotective man who takes his job as an officer of the law very seriously and with pride and always enjoys performing over the top athletic and action poses whenever possible, and he is very proud of his masculinity and enjoys being as manly as possible and dislikes the thought of actually showing tears (having once even sucked a tear back into his eye with sheer force of will). He is also a very caring and loving family man who loves his wife and son very much and is willing to do anything for them and never ceases to remind his son just how much he cares about him. He also cares a lot about the safety of the people of Swallow Falls and even helped organize and evacuation during the "Food Hurricane" the FLDSMDFR has created.

History

Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs

Earl appears as a minor antagonist early on in the movie who sees Flint as a menace to the town. He attempts to arrest Flint after the wayward FLDSMDFR destroyed Sardine Land, but Mayor Shelbourne insisted Flint be released in order to continue making food rain from the sky. Earl begrudgingly comes to appreciate the good the FLDSMDFR has done for the town, even asking Flint if could make it snow ice cream for his son's birthday.

Earl allows Cal to indulge in Flint's wondrous food weather, but learns the danger of allowing such indulgences when Cal eats too much junk food at the grand reopening of Chewandswallow and goes into a food coma. He realizes that by being complacent and greedy in their desire for the delicious food, he and the rest of the town were as much to blame for the disaster as Flint. He trusts Flint to fix his invention's mistakes, and helps the townspeople evacuate by helping them build boats made of sandwiches.

Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2

When Chester V insists on relocating the residents of Swallow Falls during the cleanup effort, Earl is the first to speak up and insist that the residents stay home. However, he respects the sanctity of yellow police tape and reluctantly agrees to Chester's plan.

Earl's employment at Ms. Crumblymuffin's cupcake shop in San Franjose makes it very clear that while Flint is living his dream working for Live Corp, the rest of the relocated residents are not necessarily adjusting as well. He immediately leaps at the chance to return to Swallow Falls ("I'm not a barista! I'm a police-ta!") and assumes the role of protector of the group.

Later, after Flint and the gang witness the watering hole of Foodimals, Earl tries to maintain a facade of stoic manliness. The arrival of the Sentinels of Safety makes Earl's role as protector redundant, leaving him on the sidelines, unsure of his purpose. So it is no surprise he stands with Sam when she confronts Flint about turning away from his friends in his hero worship of Chester. However, he is still skeptical about the foodimals, warning Sam that petting a Cheespider is "foodicide," until it's revealed that the Cheespider is just a large, meaty sweetheart.

Earl and the others are kidnapped by Sentinels of Safety and tied up with yellow police tape, which Earl cannot break. When Flint (with the help of Steve) rescues the gang, Earl joins the horde of Foodimals and helps reclaim the FLDSMDFR. This time, upon restoring the FLDSMDFR, he repeats his line from earlier: "It's enough to make a grown man cry." But this time, he recognizes that it's okay to show strong emotions, allowing himself to cry tears of joy.

Trivia

  • He was originally intended to be a gym coach who was also a volunteer policeman, therefore the reason why he's an athletic.
  • His DNA is somewhat absorbant as when his tear fell on a blueberry it gave him muscles and chest hair
