Romesh Ranganathan, James Corden, and James Acaster play the Mice/Footmen.
Taking on the roles of the mice-turned-footmen are three comedians — Romesh Ranganathan, James Corden, and James Acaster.
British stand-up comedian Ranganathan is known for his deadpan style of comedy. He’s appeared on a variety of television shows and performs stand-up shows regularly.
Corden is one of the producers of this reimagining of “Cinderella,” and he’s best known for his late-night talk show, “The Late-Late Show with James Corden.” The British comic actor also starred in the adaptations of “Into the Woods” (2014), “Cats” (2019), and “The Prom” (2020).
It was previously reported that American stand-up comic John Mulaney was set to play the third footman, but the role was instead filled by English comedian James Acaster.
Acaster has been touring award-winning stand-up shows since 2012, and some of his specials make up the four-part
miniseries “Repertoire.” More recently, he toured his show “Cold Lasagne Hate Myself 1999” around the UK in 2019.
