“The people behind it are a bunch of dumbass goofballs like any other office,” Takeuchi described. “Despite being somewhat misanthropic, Reagan really wants to help humanity, make a difference in the world and bring order to the chaos.”
“There was a kitschiness and playfulness to it. A ‘90s culture digesting what happened in the '60s and '70s and putting a fun spin on it,” he said.
Despite her optimism, Reagan faces constant hurdles on the way to her dream promotion including her unhinged, tin foil hat-wearing father (Slater) and irresponsible coworkers.
We always try to find our own way into a conspiracy theory, the classic ones. “There needs to be an asterisk in this day and age because there are lots of things we’d never like to promote being true. We never say that what you heard on the internet somewhere is exactly how the theory was perpetrated,” Takeuchi explained.
Not venturing too far from the sweet spot that Takeuchi and Hirsch perfected with “Gravity Falls,” “Inside Job” will play in the supernatural fringes of our world and feature creatures, narratives and visuals ripped right from the conspiracy tabloid headlines of supermarket checkout lanes.
The Truth is Out There, and Lizzy Caplan, Christian Slater and Clark Duke will find it in Netflix’s “Inside Job,” a new conspiracy theory office comedy animated series from “Gravity Falls” writer Shion Takeuchi and creator Alex Hirsch, both of whom have development deals with the streamer.
In an announcement made during Netflix’s Adult Animation Studio Focus at the Annecy Animation Festival, Takeuchi and Hirsch also revealed a supporting cast of A-list voice acting and live-action talent including Andrew Daly (“Veep,” “Big Mouth”), Bobby Lee (“MADtv,” “Borderlands”), John DiMaggio (“Futurama,” “Adventure Time”), Tisha Campbell (“Empire,” “Harley Quinn”) and conspiracy theory nut go-to Brett Gelman (“Stranger Things,” “Fleabag”).
Just as Takeuchi and Hirsch were lamentably letting viewers know that no footage of the series is available to tease yet, Slaters’ animated, blurred-out father character interrupted the feed with a fuzzy, foulmouthed handheld video recording in which he teased all manner of crazy narratives before being violently shut down by secret agents.” />
Although the show plays with popular conspiracy theories, its creators were careful to point out that it's all in fun, leaving often polemical actual theories to the internet.
Hirsch is more interested in telling the stories he grew up seeing on shows like the “X-Files,” delivered in a more playful way.
“Inside Job” unspools in the offices of Cognito Inc., an organization within the shadow government, and follows anti-social tech genius Reagan Ridley (Caplen) who, with her partner Brett Hand (Duke), works to uncover the infinite secrets of the world hidden in the shadows.

Amber Heard chatted with Armie Hammer and Robert Pattinson held court in a corner of the room. Inside the party in a high-ceiling ballroom, Timothée Chalamet and Olivia Wilde hugged each other while Daniel Kaluuya took a photo of Amandla Stenberg and a friend.
“Even though I didn’t make the final cut, they’re still my cast mates. I love you guys.” “I have not had the chance to see 'Solo' but shout out to my cast mates,” Williams told Variety on Saturday at the HFPA and InStyle party at the Toronto International Film Festival.
He hasn't seen 'Solo' yet, but "I’m quite sure I’ll get around to it but I’m more interested in getting another shot in being in that galaxy…I would love another opportunity to be in ‘Star Wars.’”
Also seen were Matthew McConaughey, Sofia Boutella, Darren Criss, Kit Harrington, Regina Hall, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Dev Patel, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Sam Taylor-Johnson, Abbie Cornish, Ari Graynor, Elle Fanning, Patricia Clarkson, Carey Mulligan, Sabrina Carpenter, Amber Heard, Christian Slater, Armie Hammer, Kiki Layne, Max Minghella, Jeffrey Wright, Jason Isaacs, Gael Garcia Bernal, Damien Chazelle, Tika Sumpter, Joel Edgerton, Colman Domingo and MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell.
The menu for the evening featured an array of desserts including chocolate eclairs and lemon cream cakes.
Williams was one of the dozens of stars to hit the HFPA/InStyle party, which was held at the Four Seasons Hotel for the first time after years of being located at the Windsor Arms Hotel.
"If Beale Street Could Talk" star Kiki Layne danced with her mom, who was also celebrating her birthday.
The party was still raging at 1 a.m. when a sleepy-eyed security guard walked into an elevator, looking at this watch and sighed, “Just one more hour until it closes.”” />
Paul Bettany stepped in and the character was reimagined for the new casting. The actor's role was cut from the standalone Han Solo film "Solo" after director Ron Howard’s reshoots conflicted with his schedule.
Jonah Hill was one of the first to arrive at the soiree, where fans converged behind barricades lining the circular driveway.
Melissa McCarthy spent some time on a couch talking with InStyle editor-in-chief Laura Brown with her “Can You Ever Forgive Me?” co-star Richard E. Grant sitting nearby as pop music blasted from the speakers.
Williams holds no grudges against "Star Wars." Michael K.
