Netflix’s upcoming adult animated series Inside Job, from Gravity Falls’ Shion Takeuchi and Alex Hirsch, has revealed its voice cast, according to IGN. Series regulars will include Lizzy Caplan, Christian Slater, Clark Duke, Andrew Daly, Bobby Lee, John DiMaggio, Tisha Campbell, and Brett Gelman.
For employees of the Deep State, conspiracies aren’t just theories, they’re fact. And keeping them a secret is a full-time job.
Caplen will voice Reagan Ridley, described as Cognito Inc.’s antisocial tech genius and office weirdo who would “rather disarm a nuclear bomb than engage in small talk.” At the same time, “the world could be a better place if everyone just listened to her.” Ridley’s father, Rand (Christian Slater), is the disgraced head of Cognito Inc. who was “fired after a paranoid downward spiral” and “spends his unemployment plotting revenge, starting flame wars with Richard Dawkins, and being the worst roommate ever to his daughter.”
Clark Duke’s Brett Hand is described as a “genetically handsome” character who is a “deeply sweet, caring guy who just wants everyone to be like him.” According to the streamer, the character caught the eye of the Deep State because “his Greek years trained him to fit the psychological profile of the ultimate sheep.” The CEO of the dysfunctional workplace, J.R. Scheimpough (Andrew Daly), is a “crafty executive” described as a schmoozer who can “breeze through any ethical quandary with his signature cheerful smile.”
Bobby Lee’s Dr. Andre is “a free-spirited biochemist whose passion is experimenting with drugs, and sometimes, making them” when he isn’t “out partying or using mind erasing spray on his colleagues.” John DiMaggio will voice Glenn Dolphman, a “half-man, half-dolphin 100% conservative war hero” who is in charge of Cognito’s arsenal. Dolphman apparently “loves America so much he willingly had his DNA spliced with a dolphin in an unwarranted military experiment.”
Rounding out the team, Gigi (Tisha Campbell) is the team’s “fast-talking Head of Media Manipulation and Subliminal Messages and office gossip queen,” while Magic Myc (Brett Gelman) has the ability to tap into people’s minds “being a psychic subterranean mushroom creature from a hive mind deep within Hollow Earth.”
Inside Job follows these characters at the workplace, which includes “committing the world’s conspiracies, from convoluted coverups to secret societies to masked orgy etiquette.” The synopsis adds: “Reagan thinks she can make a difference, if only she could manage her unhinged, manifesto-writing father, her irresponsible coworkers, and finally snag the promotion she’s been dreaming about.”
The new series comes from creator and showrunner Takeuchi, with Inside Job becoming the first project under her deal with Netflix, and executive producer Hirsch.
