Milioti will star as Iris. Her official character description states, “Iris has grown up vowing never to be like the father, Bryce, who abandoned her, but when fate brings them back together, she realizes that she and her old man are cut from the same cloth as they hurtle towards a final reconciliation.”

This is the second comic book role Milioti has taken on recently. She is also set to star in the upcoming Max DC series “Penguin,” playing the role of Sofia Falcone. Milioti is known for her roles in projects like the “USS Callister” episode of “Black Mirror,” Season 2 of “Fargo,” the Max series “Made for Love,” and the Peacock series “The Resort.” She has also starred in films like “Palm Springs” and “The Wolf of Wall Street.”

She is repped by UTA and The Lede Company.

The voice cast of “Hit-Monkey” Season 2 also includes Leslie Jones, Ally Maki, and Olivia Munn. The series was created by Josh Gordon and Will Speck. Both serve as executive producers. 20th Television Animation is the studio, with animation provided by Floyd County Productions.

“Hit-Monkey” was originally one of four Marvel adult animated shows set up at Hulu by Jeph Loeb’s now defunct Marvel Television unit. The others were “MODOK,” “Tigra & Dazzler,” and “Howard the Duck.” The plan was to launch all four shows and then have them crossover in an event series called “The Offenders,” similar to what Marvel TV did with its Netflix live-action shows or what Marvel Studios did with the “Avengers” films. Of the four animated shows, however, only “Hit-Monkey” and “MODOK” made it to air, with “MODOK” having been canceled after one season.
