Ken Jeong

Ken Jeong portrays Skip Cho in the upcoming miniseries The Pentaverate. The actor rose to fame for his role as Leslie Chow in the hit film series The Hangover. Since then, he’s appeared in Advantageous, Ride Along 2, Crazy Rich Asians, Saving Zoe, Elsewhere, My Spy, and Tom & Jerry. Jeong has two upcoming movies: All-Star Weekend and El Tonto.

Currently, he hosts The Masked Singer alongside Robin Thicke and others. He also appeared as a guest star in the critically acclaimed Netflix series Murderville. In an interview with Mashed, Jeong talked about working with Mike Myers and being cast in the upcoming series The Pentaverate: “It was a career highlight for me because Mike Myers is not only a friend now, but he is really one of my comedy inspirations. One of the reasons why I do comedy at all is because of Mike, and a lot of comedic actors would say the same thing. Every day was pure joy working with one of my heroes and idols. It was really one hell of an impactive experience. I’m smiling if I think of it right now. Every day, you would go to work with a smile and you would leave with an even bigger smile. I remember me and Keegan, so many times we’re pinching ourselves going, “I can’t believe we’re actually doing a Mike Myers project together.” It’s a lot of fun.”

Keegan-Michael Key

Keegan-Michael Key will be playing Dr. Hobart Clark, a nuclear physicist recruited by the Pentaverate. Key is most popularly known for being Jordan Peele’s partner in the Comedy Central sketch series Key & Peele, which ended in 2015. After the series, he began appearing the short-lived Netflix series Friends from College. He also made appearances in No Activity, Brain Games, and Game On! In 2021, he hosted Saturday Night Live and starred in Schmigadoon, a new Apple TV+ comedy-musical series. Aside from The Pentaverate, Key is set to appear in a Hulu comedy series titled Reboot. Key also hosts a podcast titled The History of Sketch Comedy, where he talks about the entertainment form’s history. In an interview with New York Times, he was asked whether he’s always been a student of sketch comedy history, to which he replied: “That’s something that started in my 20s probably, when I was an undergrad fine arts and acting major [at the University of Detroit Mercy]. I never gave much thought to the history of comedy until I started studying commedia dell’arte. I was like, “Wait a second, you mean there are archetypes? Warner Brothers didn’t just invent the phenomenon of Bugs Bunny? The primary characteristics [of Bugs] have existed for hundreds of years?” When my professor said that, my mind got peeled back. I wrote a paper [in graduate school, at Pennsylvania State University] making a comparison between vaudevillian poster advertisements from the late 19th century and the images that you would see on Greek and Roman friezes from the comedies of Plautus and Terence and Aristophanes, just because that kind of stuff fascinated me.”

Debi Mazar

Debi Mazar will be playing Patty Davis in The Pentaverate. The actress is best known for projects like Lies & Alibis, A Beautiful Life, The Women, Lovelace, Return to Babylon, She’s Funny That Way, Entourage, The Only Living Boy in New York, and Wonder Wheel. On TV, she worked on shows like Younger, where she was a series regular, Happy!, and Arde Madrid.
