Entergalactic: Who are you?
Here’s the full cast list for Netflix’s Entergalactic along with their respective roles:
- Scott “Kid Cudi” Mescudi as Jabari: A charming, creative visionary with a splash of goofball, Jabari is effortlessly cool. Dressed head-to-toe in the holiest of streetwear grails, Jabari is just one of those kids you can’t help but love. He is at the crossroads between career success and a perfect apartment. Now he's about to discover the last piece of adulthood, true love.
- Jessica Williams (Love Life, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them 3)as Meadow: An on-the-rise photographer who is Jabari’s new neighbor, Meadow is not only the coolest girl at the party, she’s the realest.
- Timothée Chalamet (Dune, Call Me by Your Name) as Jimmy: Jimmy is Jabari’s best friend and… weed dealer, though with the new drug laws he’s now focusing on crypto and new inventions. Jimmy, a laid-back conspiracy theorist and an oxymoronic conspiracy theorist is always armed with a blunt or a book.
- Ty Dolla $ign as Ky: Jabari’s irreverent, and at times, inappropriate road dog. Even though he may not always be there for Jabari in the most interesting ways, Ky is always there.
- Laura Harrier (Hollywood, BlacKkKlansman) as Carmen: Jabari’s recent ex-girlfriend. Stylish and confident, Carmen is the girl you’re supposed to marry.
- Vanessa Hudgens (Tick, Tick…Boom!) as Karina: Meadow’s best friend who is trustworthy, grounded and adorably pregnant.
- Christopher Abbott (Kraven the Hunter, On the Count of Three) as Reed: A well-dressed shark with a heart and art dealer representing Meadow’s photography. Reed's chin is strong enough for cutting glass, but it doesn't have the strength to take a punch.
- 070 Shake as Nadia: Meadow’s associate from the art scene. Nadia, a New York City-born sculptor who was raised there, is unable to drown out the brilliance of her work.
- Jaden Smith (After Earth) as Jordan: An adolescent BMX superstar, Jordan’s talent earns a pass to kick it with Jabari and Jimmy. Jordan is a different kind of person than Jabari when it comes to New York City's dating scene.
- Keith David (From Scratch, 21 Bridges) as Mr. Rager: Jabari’s superhero creation.
- Teyana Taylor (Coming 2 America, The Trap) as Boxing Coach: Meadow and Karina’s hard-nosed boxing instructor at Rumble NYC.
- Arturo Castro (Yes Day, Broad City) as Len: An upwardly mobile professional, Len is Jabrari’s co-worker at Vision Comics. He is wearing a hard bottom shoe and a newsboy cap. He’s super smart AND super annoying.
- Macaulay (American Horror Story and The Righteous Gemstones), as Downtown Pat. A legend in Downtown, and a lifelong city-wide delinquent. Pat is a gritty man, but he has an extremely romantic heart and many wise words.
