The whole voice cast for Entergalactic, the adult-animated music series based on Kid Cudi’s upcoming album of the same name, has been released by Netflix.

Jessica Williams (Love Life), Timothée Chalamet (Dune), Ty Dolla $ign, Laura Harrier (Hollywood), Vanessa Hudgens (Tick, Tick…Boom!), Christopher Abbott (Kraven the Hunter), 070 Shake, Teyana Taylor (Coming 2 America), Jaden Smith (After Earth), Keith David (From Scratch), Arturo Castro (Yes Day), and Macaulay Culkin join Kid Cudi in the voice cast (American Horror Story). The cast was revealed in a teaser trailer on Day 3 of Netflix’s Geeked Week on Wednesday. You may watch the video here.
Kid Cudi’s CD will be featured on Entergalactic. The show follows Jabari, a young artist played by Mescudi, as he tries to manage love and success. Jabari gets a step closer to the former when he moves into his dream apartment and meets his new neighbour, photography it-girl Meadow, played by Williams. Entergalactic is an explosion of art, music, and fashion that takes place in the one city that can manage all three: New York.
Jabari, played by Kid Cudi, is a pleasant, creative genius with a dash of silly. Jabari is one of those kids you can’t help but love, dressed head-to-toe in the holiest of streetwear grails. He is about to discover the final piece of adulthood: true love, at a first-time crossroads of work success and the right apartment.
Meadow Williams, Jabari’s new neighbour, is a rising photographer. Meadow is not just the coolest girl at the party; she is also the most genuine.
Chalamet plays Jimmy, Jabari’s best buddy and… pot dealer, albeit with the new drug restrictions, he’s focusing on cryptocurrency and innovative innovations. Jimmy is an oxymoronic, laid-back conspiracy theorist who is never without a blunt or a book.
Ty Dolla $ign plays Ky, Jabari’s irreverent and occasionally inappropriate road dog. Ky is always there for Jabari, even if his help can often come in unusual packages.
Carmen, Jabari’s recent ex-girlfriend, is Harrier. Carmen is the girl you’re supposed to marry. She’s stylish and confident.
Karina, Meadow’s best friend who is trustworthy, grounded, and delightfully pregnant, is played by Hudgens.
Abbott plays Reed, a well-dressed shark with a heart who works as an art dealer for Meadow’s photographs. Reed’s chin is sharp enough to cut glass but not strong enough to take a blow.
Nadia, Meadow’s art scene companion, is voiced by 070 Shake. Nadia is a boisterous sculptor from New York City whose speech can only be drowned out by the brashness of her own art.
Jordan is Smith. Jordan’s prowess as an adolescent BMX superstar gives him a pass to kick it with Jabari and Jimmy. Jordan sees the dating scene in New York City differently from Jabari.
Mr. Rager, Jabari’s superhero creation, is voiced by David.
Taylor plays Boxing Coach at Rumble NYC, Meadow and Karina’s tough-talking boxing coach.
Len is Castro. Len, a rising professional, is Jabrari’s coworker at Vision Comics. He is dressed in hard-bottom shoes and a newsboy cap. He’s both extremely intelligent and quite obnoxious.
Downtown Pat is played by Culkin. Downtown legend and lifelong delinquent across the city. Pat, despite his tough attitude, has a loving heart and sensible words to share.
The series will be written, starred in, and executive produced by Mescudi. Creator of How to Make It in America Ian Edelman will co-write with Mescudi and executive produce with Barris.
