Tonight, Rick and Morty finally returned to Adult Swim with Season 4 Episode 2. Here’s a look at who the cast members were voicing characters tonight. Read on to see what we know so far about the special guests tonight. We’ll update this post as the episode airs and after.
Season 4 Episode 2, which aired on November 17, 2019, is called “The Old Man and the Seat.” The logline reads: “We all have one thing in common broh. I don’t know broh. Watch this one.”
Of course, there’s the regular cast we’ve come to expect for Rick and Morty episodes. These include Justin Roiland as Rick Sanchez and Morty. Chris Parnell voices Jerry. Spencer Grammer voices Summer. Sarah Chalke voices Beth.
But then there are always unexpected characters and new voice guests who appear in episodes.
Special Guests Tonight
We do know that quite a few people are expected to have special guest roles in Season 4 in general. ScreenRant reported that Taika Waititi (director Thor: Ragnarok) will be the alien Glootie who helps Morty and Jerry develop an app in tonight’s episode.
Taika Waititi also voiced IG-11 on the first episode of The Mandalorian. So if he sounds familiar, that could be why. His other credits include Avengers: Endgame (Korg), What We Do in the Shadows (Viago), Thor: Ragnarok (Korg), Radiradirah (various), Green Lantern (Tom Kalmaku), Revelations, The Strip (Mostin), and more. Waititi is originally from New Zealand. He’s also an experienced painter and photographer.
In addition, Sam Neill is going to be playing another character tonight who is the same species as Glootie, ScreenRant noted. It was later revealed that he voiced the Monogatron Leader. His other credits include Blackbird, Jurassic World 3, Ride Like a Girl, Palm Beach, Peter Rabbit, Thor: Ragnarok (Odin), House of Bond (Tiny Rowland), Tutankhamun (Lord Carnarvon), And Then There Were None, MindGamers, Peaky Blinders (Chester Campbell), Harry (Jim Stockton), Alcatraz (Emerson), Crusoe, Happy Town, The Tudors, and much more.
After the episode, fans identified Pamela Adlon as voicing the mobster fly’s child. She won an Emmy for voicing Bobby on King of the Hill.
Kathleen Turner and Jeffrey Wright were also listed for tonight’s episode in the credits after the show ended.
Kathleen Turner was the Monogatron Queen. She will be on Dolly Parton’s Heartstrings, which premieres on Netflix on November 22. She was on Family Guy’s “Foxx in the Men House” episode (IMDb and Wikipedia have different listings for the role she played), and she has many credits including Sue on Californication, Charles Bing on Friends, and Liz Strickland on King of the Hill. She was also Nola on The Doctors back in the 1970s.
Jeffrey Wright is perhaps best known for his role as Bernard on Westworld, although he has numerous other credits too. He was also Valentin for 20 episodes of Boardwalk Empire, was on The Hunger Games, Angles in America (Mr. Lies), Homicide, and Cuddlywhiskers/Father on BoJack Horseman. In Rick and Morty, he voiced Tony, one of the main characters in the episode.

ScreenRant reported that Paul Giamatti and Kathleen Turner will be in upcoming episodes this season.
Rick and Morty will have 10 episodes in Season 4. The first five will air in 2019 and the last five are expected to air sometime after a holiday break.
