Myers will play eight different characters in the 6-episode series that will also star Ken Jeong, Keegan-Michael Key, Debi Mazar, Richard McCabe, Jennifer Saunders, and Lydia West. Guest appearances from Maria Menounos and Rob Lawe have also been teased. Get a glimpse of them and the hilarity that is set to ensue in the official trailer below.
The Pentaverate Official Trailer
The series looks to be extremely ridiculous, which is often a necessary approach when working with secret society subject matters. The highlight of it is Mike Myers playing multiple characters simultaneously like the good ol’ days of Austin Powers. Plus he has a strong cast to support him. The trailer doesn’t really go into how deep this secret society goes, but it does acknowledge other secret societies like The Illuminati, and that Jay-Z and Beyoncé are a part of it. It will be exciting to see what conspiracies are attributed to which society and the reasoning behind it all.
In addition to the trailer, Netflix has also shared the characters of the series as well as the performers portraying them. You can read them right below this line:
Mike Myers will be playing eight new characters including:
- Ken Scarborough: An old-school Canadian news journalist who sets out to expose the secret society and win his job back
- Anthony Lansdowne: A New England conspiracy theorist, determined to expose the secret society
- Rex Smith: A far-right radio host and highly prominent conspiracy theorist
- Lord Lordington: The secret society’s oldest and highest-ranking member.
- Bruce Baldwin: Former media mogul
- Mishu Ivanov: Ex-Russian oligarch
- Shep Gordon: Former Rock-N-Roll manager
- Jason Eccleston: A tech genius who invented the secret society’s super computer, MENTOR
Ken Jeong is Skip Cho: A casino mogul with extensive knowledge in the chaos theory of weather patterns.
Keegan-Michael Key is Dr. Hobart Clark: A nuclear physicist, recruited into the Pentaverate to resolve the climate change disaster.
Debi Mazar will be playing Patty Davis: The highly trusted Executive Assistant to the Pentaverate — some would say the brains behind the whole operation.
Richard McCabe is Exalted Pikeman Higgins: Head of the Liechtenstein Guard, the Pentaverate’s security force.
Jennifer Saunders will appear as The Maester of Dubrovnik and Saester of Dubrovnik.
- The Maester of Dubrovnik: The head investigator for the Pentaverate, who is summoned from his ancestral home in Dubrovnik to investigate the suspicious deaths.
- The Saester of Dubrovnik: The Maester’s sister and protector of the parce clavem, the spare key for the Pentaverate’s voting apparatus, which is hidden in Dubrovnik.
Lydia West is Reilly Clayton: A young woman working at the Canadian News Station with Ken. She goes on the adventure with him to expose the secret society — all while hiding a secret of her own…
The familiar voice you hear is Jeremy Irons, who serves as the narrator of the series.
And if that is not enough, Netflix has also provided more stills.
