AGENT ELVIS CHARACTER DESCRIPTIONS
Kaitlin Olson is CeCe Ryder – CeCe is the unpredictable, highly skilled secret agent who barges into Elvis’ life when he joins TCB. A product of the counterculture, she enjoys annoying Elvis but is always mission-focused. Except for when she isn’t.
Johnny Knoxville is Bobby Ray – Elvis’ best friend and not-so-bright sidekick. He’s Elvis’ entourage all wrapped up into one and fully devoted to his boss, The King of Rock n Roll.
Niecy Nash is Bertie – Bertie is the strong-willed mother figure who has known Elvis since he was in diapers. She runs his day-to-day life and is the only one who can go toe-to-toe with Elvis.
Tom Kenny is Scatter – Elvis’ weaponized, chain-smoking, degenerate former NASA chimp with a trigger happy dark side.
Don Cheadle is The Commander – The mysterious spy master who runs the covert agency known as The Central Bureau (“TCB”).
He’s the mercurial man in charge who knows where all the non-metaphorical bodies are buried.
