‘Kimmy Schmidt’ Interactive Special Gets a Star-Studded Cast, Including Jack McBrayer & Chris Parnell

Netflix keeps adding more famous people to the Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt interactive special, and you won’t hear us complaining.

The streaming service just released never-before-seen photos (along with a 16-second teaser), all of which confirm that Kimmy vs. the Reverend will star more than just the O.G. cast.

Here’s what we know (so far): Jack McBrayer and Chris Parnell will both take part in the special, though this isn’t their first time on the Kimmy Schmidt set. While McBrayer previously filmed a cameo that was sadly cut, Parnell had a guest role in season three. Based on the below pic, McBrayer will play a prison guard, while the latter’s character is still unknown.

The pair will be joined by Jackass alum Johnny Knoxville (whose role is also under wraps), along with Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe (who plays a mysterious new character named Frederick).

In addition to the newcomers, Kimmy vs. the Reverend will also feature several returning cast members, including Ellie Kemper (Kimmy), Jon Hamm (Reverend), Tituss Burgess (Tituss), Jane Krakowski (Jacqueline), Carol Kane (Lillian), Sara Chase (Cyndee), Lauren Adams (Gretchen), Sol Miranda (Donna), Amy Sedaris (Mimi) and Fred Armisen (Robert).
