Last August we found out that Hulu had ordered a pilot episode for a potential series based on Marvel’s Runaways from Y: The Last Man and Saga creator Brian K. Vaughan and Adrian Alphona.
The comic follows a group of kids who—during their parents’ yearly “charity” gathering—discover that their parents are actually members of an evil organization known as “The Pride.”
Now the full cast has been put together, rounded out by the recent announcement of who will be playing the parents on the show. Continue reading to see who’s playing who.
First came word on who will be playing the group of kids, announced earlier this month:
Rhenzy Feliz (â€œTeen Wolf,â€ â€œCasualâ€) as Alex Wilder is a loud-and-proud nerd. Admittedly a bit of a loner, Alex spends much of his free-time playing video games, but deep down, what he wants most is to reunite his childhood group of friends.
Lyrica Okano (â€œThe Affair,â€ â€œUnforgettableâ€) Nico Minoruâ€“tough, intelligent, and independentâ€“embodies teenage angst. A budding â€œWiccan,â€ Nicoâ€™s carefully crafted goth appearance isolates her from her peers and family, but maybe what she really needs is someone to talk to.
Virginia Gardner (â€œGoat,â€ â€œLittle Bitchesâ€) as Karolina Dean, model-perfect exterior with a lot going on behind her professionally whitened smile, is burdened by the lofty expectations and responsibilities put upon her by her parents. Underneath her veneer of privilege and perfection, Karolina is experiencing a newfound eagerness to explore her identity and pursue her own desires.
Ariela Barer (â€œNew Girl,â€ â€œOne Day at a Timeâ€) as Gert Yorkes is a purple-haired, bespectacled, contemporary riot grrrl. Never passing up a moment to stand on a soapbox, Gert sometimes wields her persona as a brash social justice warrior to mask her true feelings.
Gregg Sulkin (â€œFaking It,â€ â€œDonâ€™t Hang Up,â€ â€œAnti Socialâ€) as Chase Stein is a lacrosse-playing, high school heartthrob. While many write him off as a dumb jock, Chase exhibits flashes of untapped brilliance in engineering, not unlike his wildly successful fatherâ€™s.
Allegra Acosta (â€œ100 Things to do Before High School,â€ â€œJust Add Magicâ€) as Molly Hernandez, the youngest and most innocent member of her friend group, is known for her peppy positivity and a deep yearning to belong.
That was followed a few days back by the casting announcement for the parents:
Ryan Sands (â€œHat Hair,â€ â€œThe Wireâ€) as Geoffrey Wilder â€“ is a man defined by the grueling path heâ€™s taken to achieve his self-made success. A hulking presence, Geoffrey can effortlessly shift from approachable father to intimidating strategist with his son Alex.
Angel Parker (â€œThe People v. OJ Simpson: American Crime Story,â€ â€œThe Strainâ€) as Catherine Wilder â€“ a successful lawyer, is deliberate and calculating in both her words and actions. But when it comes to her family, sheâ€™s fiercely loyal and a loving mother to her son Alex.
Brittany Ishibashi (â€œThis Is Us,â€ â€œTeenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadowsâ€) as Tina Minoru â€“ a perfectionist â€œtiger mom.â€ In her professional life, she is a brilliant innovator and ruthless CEO. Emotionally, she is less confident, often shying away from difficult conversations with her daughter Nico and careful to avoid explicit displays of her feelings.
James Yaegashi (â€œBreakfast at Tiffanyâ€™sâ€ on Broadway, â€œMadame Secretaryâ€) as Robert Minoru â€“ a gentle and brilliant beta, the Woz to his wifeâ€™s Jobs. Warm and feeling, Robert sometimes struggles with being married to a woman who so forcefully barricades her emotions while caring about Nico.
Kevin Weisman (â€œHello Ladies,â€ â€œAliasâ€) as Dale Yorkes â€“ a beardy, dad-core bioengineer. Incredibly science-minded, he has a deep love for his family but oftentimes falls short at knowing the right things to say to Gert.
Brigid Brannagh (â€œArmy Wives,â€ â€œTrue Colorsâ€) as Stacey Yorkes â€“ an absent-minded and professorial bioengineer. Perpetually dawning Birkenstocks and a messy bun, Stacey utilizes a progressive approach to her parenting style to Gert.
Annie Wersching (â€œTimeless,â€ â€œThe Vampire Diariesâ€) as Leslie Dean â€“ a complicated beauty, is a poised and skilled leader. Clear-minded, focused, and charismatic, Leslie draws in devoted allies and followers who are taken by her success and charm, particularly with her daughter Karolina.
Kip Pardue (â€œRemember the Titans,â€ â€œRay Donovanâ€) as Frank Dean â€“ a former teen star who rode a short-lived movie career and is now teeming with insecurity. Floundering in his professional career as an actor, Frank is seeking to renew purpose in his life while being a father to Karolina.
James Marsters (â€œBuffy the Vampire Slayer,â€ â€œAngelâ€) as Victor Stein â€“ an engineering genius who may just save the word from itself. Electric cars, space travel; the military and NASA both look to him for answers. As a father to Chase, Victor has lofty expectations for his son, and when they arenâ€™t met, his retribution can be fierce.
Ever Carradine (â€œThe Handmaids Tale,â€ â€œGoliathâ€) as Janet Stein â€“ a perfect PTA mom. Harboring a brilliant mind of her own, she has made deep sacrifices for her husbandâ€™s world-changing career. Though she hides it for the wellbeing of her son Chase, Janet longs for more from her life.
