Oswalt currently appears in the Apple TV+ series “Manhunt” and the film “Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire.” He is known for his stand up comedy career, winning the Emmy Award in 2016 for his special “Patton Oswalt: Talking for Clapping.” As an actor, he is known for his roles in films like the animated hit “Ratatouille” and for the CBS sitcom “King of Queens.”

He is repped by UTA, Independent Artists Media, and Jackoway Austen Tyerman.

Wilson is best known for her time on the popular sketch comedy series “Mad TV,” starring in the series for eight seasons. She is a highly-accomplished voice actress, having starred in numerous TV projects and video games.

She is repped by CESD.

Like Wilson, LaMarr is also a “Mad TV” alum and in-demand voice actor. He recently reprised the role of Hermes Conrad in Hulu’s revival of “Futurama.” His other voice roles include “Static Shock,” “Samurai Jack,” and video games like “Kingdom Hearts.”

He is repped by AKA Talent Agency, DPN Talent, and Patty Woo Management.

Knight is best known for his time playing US Postal worker Newman on the seminal sitcom “Seinfeld.” He also appeared in the original “Jurassic Park” film as well as films like “Space Jam,” “Dirty Dancing,” “JFK,” and “Basic Instinct.”

Variety exclusively reported the “Among Us” series was in development back in June 2023. It hails from CBS Eye Animation Productions and Innersloth, the independent game studio behind “Among Us.”

Owen Dennis will serve as creator and executive producer on the “Among Us” series under his overall deal with CBS Studios. Per the official logline, the series is based on the premise of the game, namely, “Members of your crew have been replaced by an alien shapeshifter intent on causing confusion, sabotaging the ship, and killing everyone. Root out the ‘Impostor’ or fall victim to its murderous designs.”

Titmouse will serve as the animation studio for the series. Along with Dennis, Forest Willard, Marcus Bromander, and Carl Neisser of Innersloth will also executive produce along with Chris Prynoski, Shannon Prynoski, Antonio Canobbio, and Ben Kalina of Titmouse. CBS Eye Animation Productions produces in association with Innersloth.
