The Human Resources Cast Is Packed With A-List Celebs & Comedians
From SNL stars to Oscar winners, here are all the new characters (and voices) joining the Big Mouth spinoff.
Have you ever watched Big Mouth and wondered where the various monsters, bugs, and other creatures go when they’re not bothering Nick, Andrew, and Jessi? Netflix’s new Big Mouth spinoff Human Resources has your answer. The show, which promises to somehow be “more adult” than the original series, explores the world where these not-so-mythical creatures work and live.
In addition to some new characters — including a Logic Rock, Addiction Angel, and spider receptionist — the Human Resources cast also brings back some familiar faces from Big Mouth. Nick Kroll, Maya Rudolph, and David Thewlis all reprise their roles as Maury the Hormone Monster, Connie the Hormone Monstress, and the Shame Wizard, respectively. Other favorites including Hormone Monsters Gavin (Bobby Cannavale) and Mona (Thandiwe Newton) will also make some appearances, as will newer introductions from Big Mouth Season 5 such as Lovebug/Hateworms Rochelle (Keke Palmer), Walter (Brandon Kyle Goodman), and Sonya (Pamela Adlon), along with hippie Hormone Monster Simon Sex (Jermaine Clement).
