The cast of Entergalactic is massive and amazing, with artists the viewers may be very familiar with. Moreover, Deadline highlighted the cast members along with their respective character names with full descriptions are as follows:
Scott “Kid Cudi” Mescudi as Jabari: A charming, creative visionary with a splash of a goofball, Jabari is effortlessly cool. Dressed head-to-toe in the holiest of streetwear grails, Jabari is just one of those kids you can’t help but love. At a first-time crossroads of career success and the perfect apartment, he is about to find the final piece of adulthood: true love.
Jessica Williams as Meadow: An on-the-rise photographer who is Jabari’s new neighbor, Meadow is not only the coolest girl at the party, she’s the most real.
Timothée Chalamet as Jimmy: Jimmy is Jabari’s best friend and… weed dealer, though with the new drug laws he’s now focusing on crypto and new inventions. An oxymoronic, laid-back conspiracy theorist, Jimmy is never without a blunt and a book.
Ty Dolla $ign as Ky: Jabari’s irreverent and, at times, inappropriate road dog. Ky is always there for Jabari, even though his support can sometimes come in interesting packages.
Vanessa Hudgens as Karina: Meadow’s best friend who is trustworthy, grounded, and adorably pregnant.
Laura Harrier as Carmen: Jabari’s recent ex-girlfriend. Stylish and confident, Carmen is the girl you’re supposed to marry.
Christopher Abbott as Reed: A well-dressed shark with a heart and art dealer representing Meadow’s photography. Reed has the kind of chin that is sharp enough to cut glass but not strong enough to take a punch.
070 Shake as Nadia: Meadow’s associate from the art scene. Born and raised in New York City, Nadia is an in-your-face sculptor whose voice could only be drowned out by the brashness of her own work.
Jaden Smith as Jordan: An adolescent BMX superstar, Jordan’s talent earns a pass to kick it with Jabari and Jimmy. Jordan sees the dating landscape in New York City just a bit differently than Jabari.
Keith David as Mr. Rager: Jabari’s superhero creation.
Teyana Taylor as Boxing Coach: Meadow and Karina’s hard-nosed boxing instructor at Rumble NYC.
Arturo Castro as Len: An upwardly mobile professional, Len is Jabrari’s co-worker at Vision Comics. He wears hard-bottom shoes and a newsboy cap. He’s super smart AND super annoying.
Macaulay Culkin as Downtown Pat: The downtown legend and life-long, city-wide delinquent. Despite his gritty exterior, Pat has a very romantic heart and wise words to give.
