Matthew Goode and Helena Bonham Carter have signed up to appear in The House, an upcoming animated anthology series in the works at Netflix.
Enola Holmes' Susan Wokoma, two-time Oscar nominee Miranda Richardson, Game of Thrones alum Paul Kaye, and Friday Night Dinner's Mark Heap have also signed up for roles in the stop motion animation series, Deadline reports.
Split into three "chapters," The House will tell three dark and surreal stories about the individuals who make a particular house their home. In the first chapter, Goode will voice the role of Raymond, a father hoping to better his family's circumstances. Bonham Carter will grace the third chapter as Jen, a character who is described as an "eccentric tenant." It's not much of a character description, but somehow seems to suit "HBC" perfectly.
"The characters in The House, albeit in different ways, are all trying to make sense of the world and their place within it. It’s about their flawed attempt to conform to an idea of who they think they are or who they think they ought to be," said producer Charlotte Bavasso. "Whether they manage to break free or not. We couldn’t have dreamt of a better cast: they all embraced the heart of those existentialist comedies and the uniquely caustic sense of humor of our visionary filmmakers and writer in spectacular ways."
In the meantime, you can catch Matthew Goode in the new season of A Discovery of Witches, which begins Sunday, June 27 at 7pm ET on AMC. Or alternatively, you can watch full episodes here as soon as you like. We can also look forward to Helena Bonham Carter voicing BBC America's new, forthcoming natural history series Eden: Untamed Planet.
