CBS is plotting an animated adaptation of the popular game Among Us, and its cast will be as epic as it gets. Randall Park, Ashley Johnson, Yvette Nicole Brown, and Elijah Wood are the first voice actors to join the cast of this highly-anticipated series.

The series will draw inspiration from the game’s premise, where you have to root out the “imposters” after members of your crew have been replaced by an alien shapeshifter intent on causing confusion, sabotaging the ship, and killing everyone.

Randall Park (Fresh Off the Boat) will lead the cast as Red, the people-pleasing captain of The Skeld, while Ashley Johnson (The Last of Us) will voice Purple, the sarcastic chief of security. They’ll be joined by Yvette Nicole Brown (Community) as the HR executive Orange, along with Elijah Wood (The Lord of the Rings) as the unpaid intern Green, who’s just happy to be there.

Among Us became a massive hit after it was released by Innersloth in 2018. It became a huge sensation during the COVID-19 pandemic and hit No. 1 on Google Play in 66 countries in 2020. Its TV adaptation hails from Owen Dennis (Infinity Train), who’ll executive produce it under his overall deal with CBS.
