'Moxie' Full Cast List: Meet Hadley Robinson, Amy Poehler, Josephine Langford and rest of the actors on Netflix teen drama
'Moxie' is set to bring together a cast so vast and wild, one might often find themselves gasping, 'Wait a minute, I've seen them somewhere!'
Jennifer Mathieu's book 'Moxie' is soon going to be available for streaming on Netflix in the form of a teen drama. What's better? Comedy genius Amy Poehler is onboard to direct the film, with a script from Tamara Chestna. But wait, that's not all. 'Moxie' is set to bring together a cast so vast and wild, one might often find themselves gasping, "Wait a minute, I've seen them somewhere!"
According to the official synopsis given by Netflix, "Vivian, a seemingly shy 16-year-old, has always preferred to keep her head down and fly under the radar. But when the arrival of a new student forces her to examine the unchecked behavior of her fellow students running rampant at her high school, Vivian realizes she’s fed up."
"Inspired by her mother’s rebellious past, Vivian anonymously publishes an underground zine called Moxie to expose bias and wrongdoing in her high school, and unexpectedly sparks a movement. Now at the center of a revolution, Vivian begins to forge new friendships with other young women and allies, reaching across the divide of cliques and clubs as they learn to navigate the highs and lows of high school together."
Wondering who are the big names appearing in the feminist joyride? Read on to find out!
The teen drama sees Robinson play the leading role of Vivian Carter, a regular teen who's not okay with the sexist norms in her high school. Robinson is most popularly known for her work in the 2019 adaptation of the classic 'Little Women' (2019) and the 2020 drama 'I'm Thinking of Ending Things'.
Some might also remember the young actress from the Amazon Prime Video sci-fi drama 'Utopia' that became a cult sensation in 2020. She played the role of twin sisters Lily and Charlotte (yes, the evil ones!) that John Cusack's evil genius doctor used to carry out his superhuman experiments on.
The comedy genius is directing and starring in the upcoming movie. Poehler, who's known for her evergreen role of Leslie Knope in the NBC sitcom 'Parks and Recreation', recently garnered immense critical acclaim for her all-women rom-com film 'Wine Country'.
Bringing the same elements of a meaty all-female fun wrapped neatly in a comedic package, she presents 'Moxie' that also sees her in the role of Vivian's mother Miss Carter, whose rebellious past serves as an inspiration behind her daughter's rise to a high school feminist hero.
If the name sounds familiar, it's because she's the younger sister of '13 Reasons Why' former leading actress, Katherine Langford. The 'Moxie' actress plays the role of Emma Cunningham in the Poehler movie and the character is your typical high school it girl/queen bee.
Langford has also starred in the 'After' movie franchise that garnered massive criticism for its story that was initially a Wattpad fanfic about a dominating hunky Harry Styles. Langford played the role of Tessa Young, for which she also won a Teens Choice Award in 2019. The franchise's second installment hit in 2020, with the latter two awaiting premieres in 2021 and 2022, and both seeing her reprising her leading role.
The Chinese-American illustrator plays the role of Claudia, Vivan's close friend in 'Moxie'. Also a model, and actress, Tsai is best known for her appearance in the Fuji TV and Netflix collab series 'Terrace House: Aloha State'. Her acting debut came in the third and final season of the TV series 'Legion' which is based on the Marvel character of the same name.
As the son of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver, the young actor is no stranger to showbiz or the spotlight. He is also known for dating none other than the queen of new pop, Miley Cyrus, sometime in 2014-2015. Not a lot of people know this, but Schwarzenegger is also related to the Kennedys from his mother's side.
In the upcoming Netflix teen comedy, he plays the role of school playboy jock Mitchell, who becomes the focal point of the Moxie girls' wrath because of his suave sexism.
'Moxie', which also stars Ike Barinholtz as a schoolteacher Mr Davies, Marcia Gay Harden as Principal Marlene and Nico Hiraga as Vivan's love interest Seth Acosta, will premiere on March 3, available for streaming on Netflix.
