JOE SEANOA (AEW) will play the physical body of "Sweet Tooth," a hilarious and terrifying hulk of a man, who is as emotional as he is cunning.

RICHARD CABRAL (Mayans, American Crime) will play "Loud" the loud protective brother of Quiet.

MIKE MITCHELL (The Tomorrow War, Love) will play "Stu," best friends with Mike, the Rosencrantz & Guildenstern of this world, and together often finding themselves to be more followers than fighters.

With no memory of his family or past, John's only goal is survival, until he gets a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to make his wish of finding community come true.

STEPHANIE BEATRIZ (Encanto, Brooklyn Nine-Nine) will play "Quiet," a ferocious, badass car thief who acts purely on instinct - you couldn't stop her any more than a manhole could stop a volcano.

But when she becomes clouded by her need for revenge, Quiet forms an unlikely, antagonistic bond with John Doe.

THOMAS HADEN CHURCH (Sideways, Divorce, Spider-Man: No Way Home) will play "Agent Stone," a cold and unyielding post-apocalyptic highway patrolman who rules the roads with a silver tongue and a twisted iron fist, prosecuting even the smallest crimes with the harshest of judgements. Agent Stone will stop at nothing to bring law and order back to the Divided States of America, and will kill anyone in his path who defies his power.

WILL ARNETT (Lego Masters, Murderville) will voice "Sweet Tooth," a hilarious and terrifying hulk of a man, who is as emotional as he is cunning.
