We Have a Cast!

Above: Bruce Leister reads with Gina Shuck at auditions

We’re extremely proud to announce the cast of Muckey Landing! Working with Mike Polo as professional grouch Virgil Slatter and Bruce Leister as hapless best friend Harmon Truesdale will be:

  • Darin Dell as Aloysius, Virgil’s dog
  • Dick Pack as Chief Neville Cheefe, Chief of the Muckey Landing/Ditchwater Lesser Metropolitan Police Force
  • Cat Timko as Jenny Pilsner, the smart young police recruit working under Chief Cheefe
  • Gina Shuck as both oversexed artist Myrtle Myrkle and retired Tasty Queen manager Mabel Sprout
  • Patti Gatto as Doral Bernstein, customer service representative extraordinaire at every company in the area that needs someone to answer the phone
  • Charles Keenan as Bunny Slatter, Virgil’s former nephew, now niece, who’s also chief of the volunteer fire company
  • Kevin Smith as radio station owner Mitch Pohunk, who doesn’t give a flying f*** about the FCC. Note from C. Polo: I only used *** because this is appearing on Facebook and I don’t want a mass unfriending by everybody I knew in high school back in Texas. Mitch lets it all hang out in the podcast. Yes, living on the east coast has corrupted me. Or maybe it’s just hanging out with all these theater people.
  • Austin Topper as Newt Newberger, recent community college graduate and tongue-tied DJ at RMUK, the local radio station
  • Will McVay as traveling salesman and unlikely Lothario Dickie Butz, and also as Luke Yoder, taciturn Amish farmer
  • Claude Warnick as Uncle Yoder, Luke’s even more taciturn (and sometimes confused) uncle
  • John Hulse as Floyd Grimes, octogenarian head of the neighborhood watch out in Bucolic Estates
  • Mike Barko as Ruger Codger, late-night talk show host at RMUK
  • Jill Lewandowski as Ashley Hachache, an American Muslim limo driver who knows every kebab shop and strip club in the tri-state area
  • John Levine as Frederick Tweed, snooty restaurant owner
  • Maureen Levine as Rita Tweed, Frederick’s hot-tempered wife and restaurant co-owner

A huge thanks to everyone who auditioned for us, many of whom we’ll be calling as more characters get written and need to be voiced. Onward and upward!
