Paramount+'s Fatal Attraction; and Peacock's Poker Face & Twisted Metal.

  • Will Arnett has joined the cast of the upcoming action comedy starring Anthony Mackie, Stephanie Beatriz and Thomas Haden Church. Arnett was previously attached to the series solely as an executive producer - his company, Electric Avenue, originally acquired the rights to the project and helped steered it to a series order at the streaming service.
  • He will provide the voice of Sweet Tooth, a hilarious and terrifying hulk of a man, who is as emotional as he is cunning. A lover of chaos, this majestic rage-filled killer dons an ever-smiling clown mask and uses "Lost Vegas" as his own personal kill-ground, all while he drives his infamous doomsday ice cream truck.

She previously starred for two seasons in HBO's Togetherness, two seasons in IFC's Brockmire and in the USA limited series Dirty John: The Betty Broderick Story. Last year, she created the Netflix limited series The Chair.
  • She will play Beth Gallagher, a loyal wife, loving mother and successful small business owner whose world unravels when her husband Dan's (Jackson) indiscretion threatens to destroy their life together.
  • Danielle Macdonald will co-star on the upcoming drama starring Natasha Lyonne and Joseph Gordon-Levitt. She previously starred in the Netflix limited series Unbelievable and in the HBO Max limited series The Tourist.
  • As with all previous casting, no details were immediately announced about the character she will be playing.
