Hot Damn, the Cast of Little Fires Everywhere Is Stacked
Celeste Ng's Little Fires Everywhere has been one of the hottest and most well-reviewed books over the past few years. Touching on topics such as motherhood and adoption, the novel tells the story of a free-spirited mother and daughter who move into the home of an upper middle class family. Now, the bestseller is getting its very own Hulu miniseries adaptation. But it's not just anybody starring in the series — it's Reese Witherspoon and Kerry Washington at the very front of the show acting and producing. Much like The Handmaid's Tale, Sharp Objects, and Witherspoon's very own Big Little Lies, the upcoming show has an impressive — dare we say, fire — lineup of prestige actors in addition to its two leading ladies. Look ahead to see all of the main players in Little Fire Everywhere's star-studded cast!
Rosemarie DeWitt as Linda McCullough
Rosemarie DeWitt is set to portray Linda McCullough, Elena's childhood friend who tries to adopt an infant Chinese girl. The actress is known for a number of different film parts, including those in Rachel Getting Married, La La Land, and Poltergeist. She recently played the mother in Black Mirror's 2017 episode "Arkangel."
Joshua Jackson as Bill Richardson
Joshua Jackson will play Elena's husband, Bill Richardson, a respected lawyer in the Shaker Heights community who argues on behalf of the McCulloughs. He's a seasoned actor who's appeared on shows such as Dawson's Creek and Fringe in addition to starring in films such as Cruel Intentions and The Mighty Ducks. Jackson recently appeared in Ava DuVernay's When They See Us as Antron's lawyer.
Reese Witherspoon as Elena Richardson
Reese Witherspoon will portray Elena Richardson, the Richardson matriarch who's also a Shaker Heights journalist. Even if you've only been minimally exposed to pop culture, you definitely know who Witherspoon is given that she's portrayed so many iconic characters such as Tracy Flick from Election and Elle Woods from Legally Blonde. If you can't wait for Little Fires Everywhere to come out, you can catch her as Madeline Mackenzie on Big Little Lies.
Kerry Washington as Mia Warren
Alona Tal as Young Linda McCullough
The SEAL Team actress will show the pain and heartbreak young Linda experiences due to grief and infertility
Matthew Barnes as Young Bill Richardson
Barnes' role will reveal the tough career decisions young Bill, an aspiring Shaker Heights attorney, must make to support his growing family with Elena. Barnes is also known for portraying Lucas in FX's Atlanta and Agent Wallace in CBS's Strange Angel.
Tiffany Boone as Young Mia Warren
Boone is set to portray Mia in flashbacks as she reveals the extreme lengths the character goes to stay in art school after her scholarship is revoked. If Boone looks familiar, you might have seen her in the Showtime drama The Chi.
Andy Favreau as Young Mark McCullough
Favreau's character — Linda's husband and a friend of the Richardsons — goes through hardship as he and his wife, Linda, struggle to have children. Favreau's part is quite the departure from his role in ABC comedy Single Parents, so we're looking forward to seeing how he encapsulates the McCulloughs' trials.
Lexi Underwood as Pearl Warren
Lexi Underwood will star as Pearl Warren, Mia's teenage daughter. The teenage actress has appeared on shows such as Raven's Home and Walk the Prank. She also lent her voice to SNL's The David S. Pumpkins Halloween Special as the character Paige.
