The Great North Cast And Characters

by Buzz Street Times

Yes, that is Alanis Morissette as a giant constellation.

I don’t know about you, but with the 1-year anniversary of quarantine quickly approaching (*screams into the void*) I could use a little pick-me up, i.e. a brand new show to obsess over! If you, too, would like this, then I’d like to present The Great North.

The new animated series — from the creators of Bob’s Burgers — follows Beef (yep, you heard me), a fisherman and divorced dad of three raising his family in Alaska. The show features quirky characters, small-town shenanigans, and a larger-than-life imaginary friend made out of stars!

Now, you’re probably wondering, who is playing a guy named Beef? And I’m so glad you asked! Check out the full list of The Great North characters below, side-by-side with the actors who portray them:

The Parks and Rec alum plays Beef, a single dad who has a hard time letting go of his ex-wife and getting back into the ~dating scene.~ He’s a fisherman who likes curling and hates change!

The former Big Mouth voice actor plays Judy, Beef’s 16-year-old daughter who wants to explore the world and follow her artistic pursuits. She’s also very committed to her family and struggles with being independent!

The Last Man on Earth actor plays Wolf, the oldest son in the Tobin family. He’s more sensitive than his siblings and just want to make his father proud; he’s engaged to Honeybee!

Stand-up comedian and The Daily Show correspondent Dulcé Sloan plays Honeybee, Wolf’s fiancée. She loves Shrek and avocados (same, tbh) and is navigating life in Alaska. Read our exclusive interview with her, here!

Love star Paul Rust voices Ham, the second-eldest Tobin brother and Judy’s “Alaskan twin.” He has an affinity for baking and continues to remind his family that he’s gay, even though he’s been out for years.

Comedian Aparna Nancherla plays the youngest Tobin, Moon. He wears an adorable bear suit, and — despite being a small child — he’s the bravest family member. He’s also the most likely to get into trouble.

My Will & Grace queen (and Nick Offerman’s wifey) plays Alyson, Judy’s boss at the photography shop in the local mall. I ship her and Beef for obvious reasons.

And finally, Alanis Morissette as a spacey, imaginary version of herself!

The “You Oughta Know” rocker plays herself in the form of Judy’s imaginary character seen in the Aurora Borealis. She is non-nonsense and always tries to give it to Judy straight when she seeks advice…even though she gets ignored most of the time.
