Here’s your full guide to all of the actors and characters in the cast of Glass Onion, Rian Johnson’s highly-anticipated Knives Out sequel streaming on Netflix now.
Knives Out, Johnson’s 2017 hit, had one of the strongest casts of the decade: Ana de Armas, Chris Evans, Jamie Lee Curtis, Don Johnson, Michael Shannon, Christopher Plummer, and Toni Collette, and that’s not even all of them.
Soon, Daniel Craig will return as Benoit Blanc for a whole new mystery on Netflix. Glass Onion boasts another starry ensemble, with the characters gathered together on an avant-garde Greek island where backstabbing is par for the course. You can check out our review here.
So, it’s only fair to wonder: who’s in the Glass Onion cast, and are there any cameos? Let’s dive in.

Glass Onion sees Benoit Blanc (Daniel Craig) take a trip to a gorgeous Greek island with a group of “disruptors” who’ve all been invited to solve a mystery laid out by their host.
The official synopsis reads: “Benoit Blanc returns to peel back the layers in a new Rian Johnson whodunit. This fresh adventure finds the intrepid detective at a lavish private estate on a Greek island, but how and why he comes to be there is only the first of many puzzles.
“Blanc soon meets a distinctly disparate group of friends gathering at the invitation of billionaire Miles Bron for their yearly reunion.”

Daniel Craig stars as Benoit Blanc, the world’s greatest detective first introduced in Knives Out. Some things to know: nothing gets past him, he has remarkable style, and he’s gay… but we’re not saying who his partner is.
Craig is best known for playing James Bond between Casino Royale and No Time To Die, while also having memorable roles in Layer Cake, Logan Lucky, and Enduring Love.
Miles Bron: Edward Norton
Edward Norton stars as Miles Bron, an obnoxious tech billionaire who invites his friends to a Greek island for a weekend of luxury and fun. He’s the worst kind of rich person: someone who masquerades as a progressive when they just love power and spending money.
Norton’s long screen career has several acclaimed performances, including his roles in American History X, Primal Fear, Birdman, Fight Club, and his brief stint in the MCU as The Incredible Hulk.
Andi Brand: Janelle Monáe
