This Friday, Netflix will release anime project Neo Yokio, a six-episode series from the mind of Vampire Weekend frontman Ezra Koenig.
It’s a deadpan satire of internet-era, high-society New York littered with pop culture references, from the obvious (a Taylor Swift-skewering episode features a pop star called Sailor Pellegrino) to the obscure (Damien Hirst’s For The Love Of God, a diamond encrusted skull, becomes possessed by a demon).
On its own, the show is bizarre and brilliant enough to merit your time – but its major drawing point is its cast of voice actors.
Koenig has enlisted the likes of Jude Law, Jaden Smith, Susan Sarandon, Stephen Fry, Richard Ayoade and many more to play a host of characters in his dystopian Neo Yokio.
Check out the full list of actors who have lent their voice to the series below.
Who does she play? Kaz’s no-nonsense aunt, who controls his finances – the bulk of which comes through their demon-slaying business.
What has Susan Sarandon been in recently? She co-starred in Emmy-nominated series Feud, about the rivalry between Bette Davis and Joan Crawford during their 1962 film What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?
