Britt Robertson, Kristoffer Polaha, Austin Basis and Reggie Austin are all set to make recurring cameo appearances on Liz Tigelaar’s upcoming Hulu adaptation of Celeste Ng’s 2017 bestseller of the same name. They join the previously announced Jaime Ray Newman in a quintet of actors who first worked with Tigelaar on her 2010-11 CW series “Life Unexpected.”
Robertson will play Rachel, the nanny employed by the Richardsons so that Elena (Reese Withersppon) can continue to work at the local Shaker Heights newspaper. Polaha and Austin will play reporters covering the contentious custody hearing between the white McCullough family and their adopted baby’s biological mother, Bebe Chow (Lu Huang). Basis will play Principal Peters, who runs East Shaker High School and oversees the rebellious antics of the youngest and most troublesome Richardson child.
