Post-Apocalyptic Animated Comedy Cassius and Clay Is Headed to FXX

We may earn a commission from links on this page.

Cassius and Clay, from Adam Reed (Archer) and Megan Ganz (Modern Family, Community), has been added to FXX’s 2016 slate, where it will be paired with Archer.

The cartoon will follow Cassius (Caitlin Olson) and Clay (Lake Bell) as bandits in the American South following the apocalypse. This project has a stupidly exciting voice cast:

Cassius Cordwood (Kaitlin Olson): A hard-drinking, quick-thinking, fast-talking bull-shitter who has more debts than sense.

Shopcarter Clay (Lake Bell): The fastest gun in the post-apocalyptic South — she doesn’t go looking for trouble, she shares a station wagon with it.

Connie Mack (Susan Sarandon): The ruthless and cutthroat owner of Wilke’s only saloon and brothel. Mack runs the booze, the girls, the whole goddamn town, really.

Doc Benz (JB Smoove): The town’s only doctor, locked in a dysfunctional, co-dependent relationship with Smiffy (who carts the Doc’s ornery, legless ass around).

Smiffy (Kevin Michael Richardson): The enormous blacksmith, a gentle giant who can fix anything so long as Doc says it’s okay.

Mayor Waitstill Weeks (Jeffrey Tambor): The utterly powerless and disregarded mayor of Wilke, who’s barely in charge of his own newspaper, which only he reads.

Jack Ruby (Katy Mixon): Head-whore of The Snug, Connie Mack’s number two and the Mayor’s number one.

Reever Grint (Robert Patrick): The terrifying tax-collector from Richway, the crookedest of all the crooked sheriffs.

Odum (Stephen Root): The ever-scheming deputy who’s always under Grint’s bootheel, which is really the best place for such a greasy lickspittle.


One can only hope Cassius and Clay does for dystopia what Archer did for spies.
