Casting News - October 15, 2020

CBS All Access' The Harper House; FOX's The Resident; and Netflix's You.

  • Rhea Seehorn, Jason Lee, Tatiana Maslany, Ryan Flynn, VyVy Nguyen, Lance Krall, Roberta Colindrez, Tessa Skara, John "Spud" McConnell, Chris Diamantopoulos, Joanna Hausmann, Gabourey Sidibe, Nyima Funk and Gary Anthony Williams will lead the voice cast of the upcoming animated comedy created by Brad Neely.
  • Seehorn (Better Call Saul) will play Debbie Harper, the breadwinner of the Harper household, who takes pride in being the queen of her home.

  • Maslany (Orphan Black) will play Ollie Harper, the extroverted, free-spirited daughter. Recklessly optimistic and pretty gullible, she usually has a completely different takeaway than her two brother, Todd.
  • Flynn (Stupidface) will play Todd Harper, the smart-ass, intellectual son with a mean potty mouth. Where Ollie shines with people, Todd excels at school and generally only gets along with his family.

  • McConnell (Hap and Leonard) will play Daddie Dan, Debbie's loving father.

  • Hausmann (Bill Nye Saves the World) will play Ms. Gonzalez, a teacher at the Harper children's school who is fresh out of grad school and eager to employ all of her new teaching methods.
  • Sidibe (Empire) will play Shauna Bradley, Ollie and Todd's cunning and resourceful classmate whose family lives across the street from the Harper House. Her confidence and savvy can even be intimidating to the adults in her life.
  • Funk (Key and Peele) will play Katrina Bradley, the sarcastic co-owner of Bradleys' Bookshop. Constantly bewildered by her new neighbors, she grows to accept the Harpers and their unique contributions to the north side of town.
  • Williams (I'm Sorry) will play Gbenge Bradley, the proud patriarch of the Bradley family, who eventually warms to the Harper family and Freddie's increasingly desperate attempts to be his friend.

He has also recurred on The CW's Hart of Dixie and CBS' Instinct. Grant starred for four seasons in CBS' NCIS: New Orleans. She has also recurred on Netflix's Santa Clarita Diet and HBO Max's Search Party.
  • Van Winkle will play Cary, a wealthy, charismatic and self-proclaimed "Master of Self-Optimization" who runs his own supplement company. He invites Joe (Penn Badgley) into his inner circle.
  • Grant will play Sherry, a locally famous "Momfluencer" who is warm and down to earth, but that's just a put-upon act for her social media followers. The original "mean girl," she's threatened by Love (Victoria Pedretti) and only pretends to welcome her into her wealthy and elitist social circle. But underneath her insecurity, there's a pragmatic, loyal person who could turn out to be a true friend.
