New additions to the cast of Hulu’s upcoming animate comedy series Koala Man were announced at the series’ panel at San Diego Comic-Con. Succession actress Sarah Snook and Australian comedian Demi Lardner join a cast featuring Michael Cusack and Hugh Jackman.
Snook is set to play the character Vicky, who believes her husband Kevin, the somewhat pathetic titular hero, is just going through a phase. She tolerates him as Koala Man, a superhero whose only superpower is an intense passion for following rules and handling petty crime in the Australian town of Dapto. Lardner plays Alison, the daughter of Kevin and twin to Liam. Cusack, who also serves as creator and executive producer on the new series, voices multiple characters including the titular hero and his son, Liam. Jackman plays Big Greg, the most well-liked man in Dapto and head of the Town Council.
Executive produced by Solar Opposites and Rick and Morty co-creator Justin Roiland as well as Pokemon: Detective Pikachu writers Dan Hernandez and Benji Samit, the new series is produced by 20th Television Animation for Hulu. Hernandez and Samit are also the series showrunners. Emma Fitzsimmons and Michael Cowap also serve as executive producers for Princess Bento. Scott Greenberg, Joel Kuwahara, Dana Tafoya Cameron and Ben Jones are executive producers for Bento Box Entertainment.
