AMC Announces Full Cast For First Primetime Animated Drama ‘Pantheon’


AMC has announced the full cast for its upcoming animated primetime drama, Pantheon. A first for the network, Pantheon is based on a series of short stories from Ken Liu about Uploaded Intelligence, or human consciousness uploaded to the Cloud.

Rounding out the cast, Daniel Dae Kim (Hawaii Five-O, Always Be My Maybe), Katie Chang (The Bling Ring), Ron Livingston (A Million Little Things), Chris Diamantopoulos (American Dad), Raza Jaffrey (Code Black), Scoot McNairy (Narcos: Mexico, Argo), Anika Noni Rose (Little Fires Everywhere), Grey Griffin (Star Wars Resistance), SungWon Cho (Borderlands 3), Kevin Durand (Ballers), Samuel Roukin (TURN: Washington’s Spies), and Krystina Alabado (Broadway’s Mean Girls) are all signed on for the first season.

The first season will focus on Maddie (Chang), a bullied teen that receives help from a stranger online. The stranger is soon revealed to her as her recently deceased father, David (Kim), whose consciousness has been uploaded to the Cloud following a destructive brain scan. He may be the first, but he is certainly not the last.

DeWitt will voice Ellen, Maddie’s mother who attempts to connect with her detached daughter and soon discovers Maddie is communicating with someone on the web whom she believes may be impersonating her deceased husband. Dano will voice Caspian, a brilliant computer science teen who comes to Maddie’s aid as they search for the truth. Eckhart will voice Cary, Caspian’s demanding father with rigid ways and Schilling will voice Renee, Caspian’s doting mother. Jaffrey will voice Chanda, a prized engineer who is considered a prophet in his field. Diamantopoulos joins as Pope, Rose as Nicole, Griffin as Samara, Livingston as Waxman, Cho as teacher, Durand as Anssi, McNairy as Cody, Roukin as Gabe, and Alabado as Hannah.

The newly announced cast joins the previously announced members Paul Dano (Escape at Dannemora, Little Miss Sunshine), Rosemarie DeWitt (Little Fires Everywhere, Rachel Getting Married), Aaron Eckhart (The Dark Knight, Thank You For Smoking, Ambush), Taylor Schilling (Orange Is The New Black).
