While he is most famous for the “Twilight” saga and “The Batman,” Robert Pattinson’s efforts, such as “Tenet,” “High Life,” and “The Lighthouse,” prove the actor isn’t afraid to star in a mind-bending experience. “Mickey 17” looks to be another exceptional addition to his body of work, and based on the plot, the actor will be playing more than one character at a time. When discussing the film with ES magazine, Pattinson didn’t give away much except that he had a lot of dialogue, and when describing his overall experience, he said, “It’s like nothing I’ve ever done before. The movie is so crazy, it’s a completely different style of working.”
But he isn’t the only talented player on the roster for “Mickey 17.” In May 2022, Deadline reported that Mark Ruffalo, Naomie Ackie, and Toni Collette would also be in the lineup. “Hereditary” star Toni Collette did her best to put what the film is into words. “You can’t really define it, ” the actor said to Vogue. “It’s funny without trying to be funny, it’s really deep and sensitive, but also totally crazy. It’s pure Bong Joon-ho.” “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker” actor Naomie Ackie mentioned a similar outlook regarding the film. “The cast on it are incredible, director Bong is one of the most genius and kind men I’ve ever had the privilege to work with,” she toldGamesRadar. “The story is heartwarming and wild and funny. We had a lot of fun, there was a lot of laughter on that set.”
In July 2022, Deadline announced that Steven Yeun of “Walking Dead” and “Nope” fame would be in the cast as well.
