We learned in Encanto that “we don’t talk about Bruno.” Well, when you’re in a post apocalyptic wasteland, you do talk about stealing cars. Peacock announced today that Stephanie Beatriz (Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Encanto) has joined the live action Twisted Metal series. Beatriz will co-star with Anthony Mackie, who was previously announced as the other lead in the series.
We also know that Beatriz will play Quiet in the series. She is described as: “a ferocious, badass car thief who acts purely on instinct – you couldn’t stop her any more than a manhole could stop a volcano. Coming from a community that oppressed her into silence, Quiet’s wish is to find her place in this dark, chaotic world. But when she becomes clouded by her need for revenge, Quiet forms an unlikely, antagonistic bond with John Doe.”
Mackie will place the aforementioned John Doe, described as: “a smart ass, motor-mouthed Milkman who talks as fast as he drives, facing savage vehicles of destruction as he delivers much needed supplies from one post apocalyptic settlement to another. With no memory of his family or past, John’s only goal is survival, until he gets a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to make his wish of finding community come true.”
Sounds like pretty spot on casting, based on what we have seen them both in so far. Want to learn more about the cast and producers of the series? Go here: Live Action ‘Twisted Metal’ Series Coming To Peacock
