As the series based on the PlayStation video game franchise Twisted Metal continues its development for the Peacock streaming service, new castings have been revealed that help to round out the cast. Firstly, it was announced that the Emmy-nominated Richard Cabral will be portraying the role of Loud. The character is the overprotective brother of Quiet, who will be portrayed by Stephanie Beatriz. This will be Cabral’s first role since exiting FX’s Mayans M.C. earlier this month.
It was also announced that Joe Seanoa, aka the professional wrestler Samoa Joe, will be portraying the physical form of Sweet Tooth. This will be a dual-portrayal of the character with Will Arnett slated to provide voice-over work for the role. Sweet Tooth is arguably the most popular and recognizable character from the Twisted Metal video games, known for being a prolific killer from his ice cream truck. Joe was officially written off of his current wrestling promotion All Elite Wrestling on the latest episode of Dynamite with a shoulder injury angle this past Wednesday, which will provide him the time to physically inhabit the role of Sweet Tooth.
In addition, actors Mike Mitchell, Tahj Vaghans, and Lou Beatty Jr have been cast as recurring characters in the upcoming series. Mitchell and Vaughans will be playing Stu and Mike respectively, who have been described as the Rosencrantz and Guildenstern of the Twisted Metal universe. Meanwhile, Beatty Jr will play the experienced cartographer Tommy.
These names join the already star-studded cast consisting of Anthony Mackie as John Doe, Thomas Haden Church as Agent Stone, and Neve Campbell as Raven. Production for the series began in late May and is set to complete by early September.
