‘StartUp’ is an American drama web television series that airs on Sony’s streaming and video service, Crackle. Created by Ben Ketai, the show boasts a star-studded cast and follows an unlikely group of digital currency tech entrepreneurs.
On January 27, 2016, Sony Crackle announced that it had ordered a 10-episode full season of the show, which premiered half-a-year-later on September 6, 2017. While it was not received well by television critics, viewers enjoyed the show, prompting Sony to renew it for a second season. Subsequently, Season 2, also consisting of 10 episodes, premiered on September 28, 2017, and was again praised by viewers. Thus, a couple of months after its release, Sony renewed ‘StartUp’ for a 10-episode Season 3, which then premiered on November 1, 2018. Since then, fans of the show have been clamouring for a fourth season, and we’re fairly certain that there will be one. Here’s everything we know about it thus far.
StartUp Cast: Who is in it?
‘StartUp’ has quite a few main and recurring cast members and boasts many stars among them.
Adam Brody, who appeared in movies like ‘Mr. & Mrs. Smith’ (2005), ‘Thank You for Smoking’ (2006), and the recent ‘Shazam’ (2019), plays the role of Nick Talman, who invests money into a talented coder’s cryptocurrency startup, thinking it to be his father’s money. However, things go awry for Nick when he realizes that the money he has invested is not his father’s, but belongs to a Haitian gang member. Edi Gathegi plays the role of the aforementioned gang member, Ronald Dacey, while Otmara Marrero steps into the shoes of Izzy Morales, the coder who creates the cryptocurrency start-up. Despite getting off to a complicated start, the trio start working together and forge an unlikely business relationship.
Martin Freeman, who has appeared in movies like ‘The Hobbit’ trilogy and critically acclaimed shows like ‘Fargo’, plays the role of corrupt FBI agent Phil Rask who relentlessly pursues the unlikely group of entrepreneurs. Ron Perlman, meanwhile, plays business angel Wes Chandler who invests in Izzy’s startup, and Addison Timlin plays Wes’ daughter, Mara Chandler. Finally, Mira Sorvino plays the role of NSA agent Rebecca Stroud who starts investigating ArakNet (Izzy’s version of the dark net) after it falls under the NSA’s radar.
Apart from the aforementioned main cast members, the show also has several recurring cast members including Tony Plana as Izzy’s father Mr. Morales, Jenny Gago as Iggy’s mother Marta Morales, Kristen Ariza as Ronald’s wife Tamara Dacey, Kelvin Harrison Jr. as Ronald’s son Touie Dacey, Génesis Castro Díaz as Ronald’s daughter Elsie Dacey, Jocelin Donahue as Maddie Pierce, Wayne Knight as Benny Blush, Aaron Yoo as Alex Bell, and Vera Cherny as Vera, among others.
