When it comes to the live-action side of his career, Azaria played the nefarious Gargamel in the 2011 adaptation of The Smurfs. He is also widely known for role as Eddie in the Apple TV+ series, Hello Tomorrow! Considering the diverse roles he has taken throughout the course of his career, he’s more than ready to join Mrs. Maisel.

Darren Criss and Sutton Foster Are Exciting Additions to the Cast

If you’re The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, a show that has been a love letter to the theatre industry, of course you’d like a performer like Criss to join the cast of your final season. The actor proved his ability to take the stage with his role of Blaine Anderson in Glee. But during the most recent chapter of his career, Criss has dedicated his time to hosting The Queen Family Singalong and making a special appearance during the Muppets Haunted Mansion. After having plenty of fun in family-friendly productions, the performer is ready to join the final bow of Prime Video‘s impressive comedy.

Additionally, a performer like Foster who has made her mark on Broadway, and has two Tony Awards to prove it, is without an intriguing addition to the cast. What’s even more exciting about Foster‘s casting is that The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel will reunite the actress with Sherman-Palladino, as the two worked on the fan favorite short-lived comedy drama Bunheads.
