Wayne Brady will make his way to Inkwell Isle for Netflix’s The Cuphead Show!
During its Geeked Week event, Netflix revealed that the Game of Talents host will join the animated video game series as villain King Dice. Brady’s character is the manipulative, right-hand man to the devil.
The Cuphead Show! will expand on the game’s characters and world, with an animation style inspired by the classic Fleischer cartoons from the 1930s. Cuphead comes from Studio MDHR and is widely known for its wild boss brawls, challenging gameplay and especially its retro hand-animated style.
The comedy series follows the unique misadventures of the impulsive Cuphead and his cautious but easily swayed brother Mugman. Through their many misadventures across their surreal home of the Inkwell Isles, they’ve always got each other’s back.
