Hulu has added a new trio to the voice cast of its animated series Koala Man. The streaming service announced on Thursday that Jemaine Clement, Rachel House, and Jarrad Wright are set to make guest appearances on the forthcoming series. They’ll join Miranda Otto and Hugo Weaving, who are also set to lend their voices to the animated series in guest roles as Mindy and King Emudeus, respectively.
They’ll join the previously announced Michael Cusack, who is also the show’s creator and executive producer, Hugh Jackman, Sarah Snook and Demi Lardner. Cusack stars as the titular hero, and he also voices the hero’s son, Liam. While Jackman plays Big Greg, Snook plays Kevin’s wife, Vicky, and Lardner voices both Kevin and Vicky’s daughter Alison. Clement is set to play Bazwell, a character described as a nerdy and caring mentor to Liam; he’s said to offer “support [to] the students of North Dapto High with a helpful anecdote or encouraging song lyric.” House will play Annie, Vicky’s friend and coworker at the school canteen, as well as Louise, the proprietress of the bowling club who is attracted to Koala Man. And Wright will play Spider, Kevin’s bogan best friend and neighbor who often helps Koala Man on his missions.
Koala Man, which will hit Hulu next year, tells the story of middle-aged dad Kevin and his not-so-secret identity as Koala Man whose only superpower is a burning passion for following rules and snuffing out petty crime in the town of Dapto. The series is produced by Cusack, Justin Roiland, Dan Hernandez and Benji Samit.
