‘Among the Stars: Voices of Park Brown Wood and Johnson’ Elevate Spaceship Saga to New Heights


In the ever-expanding universe of on-screen entertainment, a new star is set to rise with the announcement of the voice cast for the highly anticipated animated series “Among Us.” Helmed by the reputable Hollywood powerhouse CBS Studios, the series is drawing considerable attention not just for its premise but also for the stellar assembly of voices giving life to its characters. Among them are gifted actors Randall Park, Yvette Nicole Brown, and Elijah Wood, with Ashley Johnson, who shined in “The Last of Us,” adding to the luminary lineup.

“Among Us,” the series, takes inspiration from its namesake mobile game sensation—a game that swiftly infected pop culture with its themes of deception and survival aboard a spaceship. The narrative thrust of the series hangs on the volatile dynamic of crew members battling an insidious alien shapeshifter among them that assumes their forms and sows a deadly path of chaos.

Randall Park, known for his comedic charm in hits like “Always Be My Maybe,” is set to voice Red, the ship’s captain whose overinflated ego is as distinctly colored as his name. While he may fancy himself a people-pleaser, his bluster only thinly veils an inflated sense of self-importance that may either lead or mislead his crew on the Skeld ship.

Meanwhile, Ashley Johnson lends her voice to Purple, the quick-witted and decidedly skeptical head of security. Her razor-sharp sarcasm will likely be a beacon of light—or suspicion—as the crew navigates through the treacherous terrain of trust and betrayal in the void of space.

Yvette Nicole Brown, a beloved figure renowned for her performances on the small screen, will voice Orange. As head of HR, her character will no doubt find herself tested, managing not only the rather human resources aboard but also contending with an enemy whose very strategy is to undermine the humanity of the ship’s occupants.

Adding a unique edge to the cast dynamic is Elijah Wood, who enters the fray as Green, an unpaid intern whose experience on the Skeld may be more intense than any internship ought to be. Wood’s foray into the world of animated voice work continues to cement his versatility as an actor, even as his character must tackle the complexities of space labor relations sans paycheck.

Owen Dennis, of infinite train fame, captains the creative ship of this series as creator and executive producer under an overall deal with CBS Studios. His vision will shape the series’ tone and direction, potentially capturing the hearts of fans who made the game such a cultural touchstone.

In a display of collaborative effort reflective of the in-game teamwork (or treachery), Forest Willard, Marcus Bromander, and Carl Neisser from Innersloth—the creators of the original “Among Us” game—join as executive producers alongside Titmouse’s legion of skilled producers Chris Prynoski, Shannon Prynoski, Antonio Canobbio, and Ben Kalina. Their collective prowess ensures the series is anchored in authenticity while soaring to new narrative heights.

The series’ approach to marrying the complexities of character-driven narratives with the inherent suspense and urgency of the game promises a multidimensional viewing experience. As such, it stands poised to attract a demographic ranging from steadfast fans eager to consume anything related to their beloved game to newcomers intrigued by the unique blend of humor, suspicion, and sci-fi thrills.

In charting a course for “Among Us,” CBS Studios has calibrated its trajectory to intersect with the vast constellation of multimedia franchises. What remains to be seen is whether the series will achieve a success parallel to that of the game, or perhaps, carve out an entirely new legacy in the cosmos of entertainment. With a crew of accomplished voice talents and a formidable production team, “Among Us” pledges to bring to audiences not just a show, but an experience—a cosmic journey where trust is ephemeral, roles are reversible, and the very concept of ally or adversary is as volatile as the stars themselves.
