Natasha Lyonne is set to lead Rian Johnson’s mystery series Poker Face and she’ll be in a pretty good company. The list of amazing cast members joining her for the ride is getting longer by the day, and it now includes five more actors, starting with Jameela Jamil and Tim Meadows.
Jamil (The Good Place) and Meadows (Saturday Night Live) are among five new cast members added to the star-studded cast. Nicholas Cirillo (Outer Banks, Jesus Revolution), Audrey Corsa (All Rise, Dear Edward), and Niall Cunningham (And Just Like That, Life in Pieces) are also set to join the Peacock series.
In addition to Lyonne, Poker Face will also star Adrien Brody, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Stephanie Hsu, Chloë Sevigny, Dascha Polanco, and Lil Rel Howery, among others.
The series received a ten-episode order and it’s expected to follow a procedural format, with a new mystery being solved in each episode. Knives Out director Rian Johnson serves as creator, writer, director, and executive producer, and he’s looking forward to joining forces with Lyonne.
“I’m very excited to dig into the type of fun, character-driven, case-of-the-week mystery goodness I grew up watching. It’s my happy place. Having Natasha as a partner in crime is a dream, and we’ve found the perfect home at Peacock,” said Johnson in a statement.
