Q-Force Cast & Character Guide: Where You Know The Actors From

Q-Force is Netflix’s latest animated show for adults, and here’s who’s in charge of voicing every character and where you know them from. Animated shows are usually implied to be aimed at young audiences, and while there are still a number of cartoons out there for kids, animated shows made for more mature audiences have gained force in recent years. Most of these have found a home at different streaming services, as they allow more creative freedom than traditional TV, and a recent example of these is Netflix’s Q-Force.

Created by Gabe Liedman and executive produced by Sean Hayes, Michael Schur, Todd Milliner, and David Miner, Q-Force follows a group of undervalued LGBT superspies, centering on a gay secret agent who is like James Bond and who was once the Golden Boy of the American Intelligence Agency (AIA) until he came out as gay. Unable to fire him, the Agency sent him off to West Hollywood to disappear into obscurity, but instead, he assembled a misfit squad of LGBTQ+ geniuses, joining forces with an expert mechanic, a master of drag and disguise, and a hacker, becoming the team Queer Force or Q-Force. As they try to prove themselves on personal and professional adventures, one day, in order to solve a case and get the approval of the agency, they have to add a new member to their team: a straight man.

Q-Force has received mixed reviews so far, with some praising its approach to queer culture and the different layers of queerness while others have criticized these same aspects and more. However, Q-Force has been better received by the audience, who got to hear some familiar voices as part of the cast of this peculiar story. Here’s the cast and character guide for Netflix’s Q-Force.

Sean Hayes voices Steve Maryweather a.k.a. Mary, the once-raising star of the AIA’s training academy and whose career almost came to an end after coming out as gay. This led to his career being downgraded and also to him heading the Q-Force team. Sean Hayes has appeared in a variety of comedy TV shows and movies, most notably The Bucket List, The Three Stooges, Will & Grace, and The Millers. As for voice work, he has played Mr. Tinkles in Cats & Dogs, Terri Perry in Monsters University, and Steven in The Emoji Movie.
