Who are the cast members of mulligan?
We have the full cast of Mulligan with character descriptions provided;
- nat faxon It’s «Matty Mulligan»: Matty, a working-class Boston everyman, single-handedly saved Earth from alien invasion, but is now way beyond his means as leader of (what’s left of) the humanity. The only thing he wants more than to be loved by everyone is to win Lucy over, but both will require him to really think about someone other than himself for once.
- chrissy teigen is «Lucy Suwan»: Lucy had a whirlwind affair with Matty during the attack, making her now the de facto First Lady. Except they just met and it turns out they have nothing in common. A beauty queen who believes deeply in the America you see in beer commercials, she wants to use her new influence to help fix the world, if she can figure out how.
- Tina Fey is “Dr. Farrah Braun” – Dr. Braun is a super military scientist and single mom. She’s still trying to «have it all» as a working mom, but she’s still dismissed as just a «woman scientist» in a world that really shouldn’t have time to worry about such things.
- sam richardson (The Afterparty) is “Simon Prioleau”: Simon is the only surviving historian and one of Matty’s top advisers, even though Matty thinks he’s a useless nerd. Desperate to save what’s left of human history before he disappears, he too is eager to take advantage of this new opportunity to reinvent himself as a confident, cool guy. However, he is not working. Nobody is buying the fedora.
- Dana Carvey He’s «Senator Cartwright LaMarr»: The self-proclaimed vice president, LaMarr, is a goofy, scheming political animal who’s eager to rebuild everything the way it was, when guys like him were in power. He is forced to deal with both Matty’s apathy and Lucy’s empathy in order to rule the way he wants, but his power depends on Matty’s popularity, so he must continue to support him. For now.
Phil LaMarr (Futurama, crazy TV) is «Axatrax»: A worthy general, Axatrax is the only alien survivor of the invasion and is now a prisoner of the intellectually inferior humans who defeated him. Imprisoned in the White House bowling alley, he makes an unlikely «shoulder» to cry on for Matty, but it’s possible he’s just buying time until he can signal a second invasion.
Recurring guest stars have also been confirmed for the series;
- Ayo Edebiri (Bear) is “General Scarpaccio/Jayson Moody” – “General Scarpaccio” was an aimless teenager, Jayson Moody, before he found a Marine general’s uniform on a dead body and put it on. He’s now the head of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, which means he can do cool stuff like shoot guns and fly helicopters.
- Daniel Radcliffe (Weird: The Al Yankovic Story) is “King Jeremy”: Jeremy Fitzhogg is the hard-partying son of an English Lord who was working at the British embassy when the aliens attacked, but everyone in America thinks he’s smart because of his accent. And when he realizes that he is the last surviving British citizen, he declares himself king.
- ronny chieng (M3gan, the daily program) is “Johnny Zhao” – Johnny Zhao is a Hong Kong billionaire who spent the attack partying with models on his yacht. After landing in DC, he teams up with LaMarr to try to make money matter again in a world that doesn’t need it.
