If you're a fan of the HBO Max series Smiling Friends you'll likely recognize Australian animator and voice actor Michael Cusack (he co-created Smiling Friends after all!)

Michael voices the titular character in Koala Man — Kevin is a doting dad by day, but the masked vigilante Koala Man by night. Nobody has any idea Kevin is Koala Man. (That was sarcasm, FYI.) Michael also voices Kevin's son, Liam.

Can we all just be best friends with Hugh Jackman?

Do we even need to explain who this man is? It would be an understatement to say that legendary Aussie Hugh Jackman has experience in superhero-centric properties (he played this one guy with big claws once or twice.) Rumor has it that he's still feuding with that Deadpool guy, but don't quote us on that one.

All jokes aside, Hugh voices the character Big Greg in Koala Man.

Australian actress Sarah Snook, best known for her role of Shiv Roy in the hit HBO series Succession (which is still ongoing as well), voices the character Vicky in Koala Man.

Spoiler alert — Vicky is married to Kevin... who is secretly Koala Man! OK, it's actually not so secret. But Vicky is Kevin/Koala Man's wife.

Everyone knows that no superhero story is complete without a villain, and Koala Man hired the best of the best to voice Koala Man's nemesis King Emudeus.

It goes without saying that Hugo Weaving is another Aussie legend. Not only did he play Elrond in the original Lord of the Rings trilogy, but he also was the foe to another iconic superhero, Captain America, in Captain America: The First Avenger (among many other roles, obviously.)
