It’s Friday, which around these parts means it is Todd Margaret Day. The second episode of The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret airs tonight at 10 p.m. ET. Last week we saw Todd impress his boss, break up with his fake girlfriend, feed his cat, and head off to London to prepare to flood the market with energy drinks. Is Todd up for the challenge? Of course not. Tonight, crack open a Thundermuscle, sit back, and relax with the next installment of Todd Margaret. Until the Thundermuscle kicks in and you wind up running in circles around the room.
Before tonight’s episode we wanted to take a moment to introduce the stellar cast that makes up Todd Margaret. There are some old friends and familiar faces on board, but unless you spend a lot of time watching television on the other side of the pond, you may not recognize everyone. Yet.
David Cross is an Emmy Award winner and Grammy Award nominated stand up comic and actor. But he is best known for his portrayal of world’s worst therapist Dr. Tobias Funke in Arrested Development(which, by the way, is also on IFC tonight, starting at 10:30 p.m. ET)
Amber Tamblyn started her acting career in cult favorite Joan of Arcadia for which she was nominated for an Emmy. Most recently she starred in the underappreciated cop show The Unusuals and rumor has it she will be joining the cast on medical mystery show House. (Hey Amber, pro tip: It’s not lupus.)
If you haven’t seen the BBC’s The Inbetweeners, you are not truly living. If you have been watching the show, you will recognize Blake Harrison as Neil, the lovably lunk-headed mate of the hapless high schoolers in the show.
Sharon Horgan may be unfamiliar to most Americans, but in England she has her own award-winning BBC comedy show, Pulling, which she co-wrote with Dennis Kelly. She also appeared in Ricky Gervais’ brilliant comedy series Extras.
She’s hard to recognize when she’s clean, pretty, and not pregnant, but Todd Margaret’s neighbor is played by Sara Pascoe. She is an accomplished stand-up comic and theater actress and has appeared in cult BBC shows The Thick of It (which you can’t see on BBC America) and Being Human (which you CAN see on BBC America, you know, when you’re not watching IFC).
Will Arnett is well known for role as GOB Bluth in Arrested Development and guest spots on 30 Rock. He is currently starring in Running Wilde, which reunites him with Arrested Development‘s Mitch Hurwitz and, occasionally, David Cross.
