Not only does the effortlessly awesome Mark Hamill loan his plica vocalis to the voice cast of Amazon’s animated take on Robert ‘The Walking Dead’ Kirkman’s Invincible, but he is joined by fellow GFFA alum Kevin Michael Richardson, Jabba the Hutt from Star Wars: The Clone Wars.
The star-studded cast also includes J.K. Simmons (Counterpart), awards season darling Sandra Oh (Killing Eve), Seth Rogen (who is attached to the feature film take on Invincible), Gillian Jacobs (Love), Andrew Rannells (Black Monday), Zazie Beetz (Deadpool 2), Mark Hamill (Star Wars), Walton Goggins (Justified), Jason Mantzoukas (Brooklyn Nine-Nine), Mae Whitman (Good Girls), Chris Diamantopoulos (Silicon Valley), Melise (The Flash), Kevin Michael Richardson (The Simpsons), Grey Griffin (Avengers Assemble) and Max Burkholder (Parenthood).
The eight-episode hour long animated take on Invincible, based on Kirkman’s recently concluded comic book of the same name revolves around Mark Grayson (Yeun), who is just like every other guy his age — except that his father is the most powerful superhero on the planet, Omni-Man (Simmons). But as Mark develops powers of his own, he discovers that his father’s legacy may not be as heroic as it seems. Invincible will premiere in 2020 on Amazon. Additional details about which actors will voice other characters was not immediately available.
