Meet the cast and real people behind Jared Leto drama WeCrashed
Apple continues to sign up big names for its original series.
WeCrashed, the latest drama from Apple TV Plus, lands on the streamer this week and its cast is led by two Hollywood A-listers.
Jared Leto and Anne Hathaway star as Adam and Rebekah Neumann, the power couple behind shared, flexible workspace company WeWork.
The series explores how the company grew from a single space into a global brand worth $47 billion in under 10 years, then saw its value plummet in under a year.
This real-life story needs to be seen to be believed, with Apple's series following hit podcast WeCrashed: The Rise and Fall of WeWork and Hulu documentary WeWork: Or the Making and Breaking of a $47 Billion Unicorn, which is available on Amazon.
Read on for everything you need to know about the cast of WeCrashed, including side-by-side comparisons with the real people some of them are portraying.
