Blockbuster is an “ensemble comedy that takes place in the last Blockbuster Video in America, that explores what it takes – and more specifically who it takes – for a small business to succeed against all odds.”

Also starring in the show are previously announced Randall Park and Melissa Fumero, plus just announced recurring stars JB Smoove and Kamaia Fairburn.

Keep reading below to learn about the newly cast characters…

Tyler will be playing Carlos – As a first-generation son of immigrants, he learned English by watching movies, and they quickly became his love language. He dreams of being a filmmaker, but can’t help but feel like he owes it to his parents to live the American life they planned for him.

Madeleine is Hannah – She’s genuinely sweet, a little naïve, yet undeniably charming. She lost her mom at a young age but is surrounded by family at Blockbuster. Financially savvy to a fault, the staff is helping her learn the importance of self-care.

Olga will play Connie – She works at Blockbuster to make friends, not money. She’s the unintentionally blunt mother figure to not just the employees, but many of the Blockbuster regulars.

JB has been cast as Percy – As the strip mall and party store owner, Percy sees himself as “the man with the plan.” He’s the fast-talking, stylish, over-confident other half of the best friend duo of Timmy (Randall Park) and Percy, who can’t seem to stay away from Blockbuster, especially with his daughter working there.

Kamaia is playing Kayla – Kayla is Percy’s smart and sometimes scary teen daughter. She’s not super open to the idea of taking orders from anyone, which can make her working at Blockbuster complicated for Timmy.

If you missed it, Tyler will also be in an upcoming queer teen love story movie on Hulu!
