As per the synopsis on Hulu -- 'Taking over the world has never felt farther away as the megalomaniacal supervillain M.O.D.O.K. struggles to maintain control over his evil organization and his demanding family.' Here's a look at the talented cast of actors voicing the main animated characters in what looks like a hilariously promising series.
Patton Oswalt plays the role of M.O.D.O.K., one of Marvel's comicverse's most notable villains. While the comic book character is a lot more dark and sinister, the series sets him up as a lighter, funnier character.
Oswalt was born in Portsmouth, Virginia, to Carla and Larry J. Oswalt, a United States Marine Corps officer. On account of his father's career, he lived in Ohio and later in Tustin, California, before settling in Sterling, Virginia.
