Gina Rodriguez and David Thewlis join the bizarre and hilarious world of Netflix's Big Mouth
Gina Rodriguez is going to play the role of a girl called Gina, who's supposed to shakes the social dynamics of the school. David Thewlis is going to be The Shame Wizard.
This just in: Netflix has added two new characters on the Big Mouth - aka the most hilariously inappropriate animated series there probably is currently. And playing them will be two extremely talented actors: Gina Rodriguez (from Jane the Virgin) and David Thewlis (From the Harry Potter franchise).
Rodriguez is set to voice the character of Gina, who happens to be a girl on Missy (voiced by Jenny Slate) and Jessi's (voiced by Jessy Khlien) soccer team. Gina is going to be that one character who manages to shake up the social dynamics of the school - meaning it's time for some drama!
Thewlis, on the other hand, will join forces with the fantasy side of the show - all set to play the character of The Shame Wizard - the Hormone Monster's (Nick Kroll) mortal enemy who haunts kids and fuels their deepest moments of shame.
Kroll is also the creator of the show, along with his real-life best friend and the man who blessed the world with Family Guy, Andrew Goldberg. The show is primarily about the fantasy world of hormones being personalized for each character that's going through puberty.
Known for their blunt proclamations and extremely satirical exchanges on the society we live in, this show has managed to gain quite the following. For everybody wanting to relieve their disgustingly humiliating, yet absolutely relatable moments of childhood, this is the show. The fact that it's an animated show must not let one fool themselves into believing this is anything below rated R.

But the show is crisp and on point, bragging a roster of noteworthy comedic geniuses voicing the animated characters. It includes John Mulaney, Maya Rudolph, Jason Mantzoukas, Jordan Peele, Fred Armisen, and Andrew Rannells. There has been no set release date announced for Season 2, but it was confirmed last fall that the entire remarkable cast is going to return.
