The Cast Of "Central Park" Is Incredible – Here's Who Everyone Plays In The Series
Including Kathryn Hahn, Tituss Burgess, Stanley Tucci, and many more!
If you haven't heard of Apple TV+ adult animation
Central Park, then I'm happy to introduce to you it!
The series began streaming last year and recently just released a second season!
The series follows the Tillerman family who live in the middle of Central Park in New York. It’s kind of like
Bob's Burgers meets Disney – in that the characters all look like the Belcher family, and they break out into song all the time!
The similarity to
Bob's Burgers is no coincidence, since both shows were created by Loren Bouchard. Nora Smith and Frozen's Josh Gad also serve as the co-creators of Central Park.
Anyway, the voice cast is STACKED with amazing talent. Like, seriously, this is the definition of an ensemble cast. Check it out...
