Arnold Schwarzenegger and Monica Barbaro (Top Gun: Maverick) will star in an upcoming Netflix series from Reacher creator Nick Santora . You play father and daughter who one day find out that they were both secretly working for the CIA and have been lying to each other the entire time. So much has been known for a long time.
But now Netflix is taking the project seriously and has signed the rest of the cast – as is so often the case with the streaming service, they also rely heavily on faces that are known from other Netflix formats (Barbaro was also the leading actress in the one that was quickly discontinued). Netflix series “ The Good Cop ”).
The introduction of all those involved in other permanent series roles and even some actors* for recurring guest roles also gives us a further impression of the action comedy series itself. Because Netflix has also revealed who is playing which part and a few details about the figures supplied.
Stars from “You”, “Is That Cake?” and from Marvel alongside Arnie
Travis Van Winkle , known as the very wealthy founder of a nutritional supplement company from “You – Du will love me” will play a colleague of the father-daughter duo, who at first glance seems like the annoying know-it-all, but is actually quite nice.
A real Netflix face is comedian Fortune Feimster , who is regularly present in the various formats of the streaming service. Among other things, she was seen in the film “Yes Day”, again and again on the talk show “The Afterparty” or most recently in the game show “Is that cake?”. She also has her own comedy special on Netflix, Fortune Feimster: Sweet & Salty. In the new series, she plays the sarcastic CIA agent Roo, who idolizes Schwarzenegger’s Luke like a father.

Meanwhile, as the boss of the two main characters, we see Barbara Eve Harris , who you may have already seen in the Netflix series “Messiah”. Meanwhile, you may know Milan Carter from the Netflix film Dolemite Is My Name , who plays a staunch nerd who has been helping Schwarzenegger’s Luke on his dangerous CIA missions for years.
Meanwhile, Fabiana Udenio , who has starred in “Jane The Virgin” among others , embodies Tally, the ex-wife of Schwarzenegger’s Luke. She has no idea that he is with the CIA, even though she has always found his many “business trips” suspicious.
Since such a series also needs a bad guy, Gabriel Luna is also on board, who played the Ghost Rider for the Marvel series “Agents Of SHIELD” and has already taken on Arnie once as an evil killing machine in “Terminator 6”. He plays a businessman who deals illegally in weapons.

The most prominent cast member next to Schwarzenegger is probably Jay Baruchel . The Canadian, known among other things for “This is the end”, plays the husband of Monica Barbaros Emma – a kindergarten teacher who at first has no idea what his wife’s real work is and now learns many secrets about her.
Also starring are Aparna Brielle (“Jay & Silent Bob Reboot”) as young NSA analyst Tina, who is currently on loan to the CIA, and Andy Buckley as Tally’s new boyfriend, who gets angry when he realizes it that Schwarzenegger’s Luke wants to get his ex back.
Meanwhile, we see the following in recurring supporting roles:
Devon Bostick (“The 100”) as Oscar, son of Luke and Tally
Stephanie Sy (“Nobody”) as Oscar’s wife
Newcomer Rachel Lynch as Oscar’s daughter and thus Luke’s granddaughter, who has a special relationship with her grandfather and
