‘Poker Face’: Rian Johnson’s Peacock Series Adds Megan Suri, Colton Ryan and Brandon Micheal Hall!!

The cast for the upcoming series, Poker Face directed by Rian Johnson just cannot stop growing. The series has added three new members to its already stellar cast. Variety reports that the new additions to the series include, Brandon Micheal Hall, Colton Ryan and Megan Suri adding to the ever-expanding cast of the murder-mystery series. The new additions to the Natasha Lyonne-led series will see their roles, just like with the previous casting announcements, kept under wraps – it’s a murder mystery after all. The trio of actors will join the team of cast members that include Cherry Jones, Luis Guzmán, Hong Chau, and Reed Birney who were previously announced.

Hall is well known for his role in the 2017 ABC sitcom The Mayor where he played the role of Courtney Rose, mayor of Fort Grey and aspiring rapper. Hall went on to star in two seasons of CBS’s comedy-drama series, God Friended Me where his character receives a friend request on social media from the all-knowing being.

However, the actress is probably best known for her recurring role playing Aneesa, on the Netflix teen comedy series Never Have I Ever.

Ryan’s rise to popularity can be linked to his portrayal of Conrad Roy in The Girl From Plainville.

The actor has also gone on to portray Connor Murphy who met the same end in the film adaptation of Dear Evan Hansen. Ryan’s other credits include Uncle Frank and the Apple TV+ series Little Voice.
