Rufus Sewell as Roger Salas in Kaleidoscope on NetflixNetflix

Here’s your guide to the full cast and characters in Kaleidoscope, the non-linear heist thriller on Netflix that dropped on New Year’s Day 2023.

Kaleidoscope isn’t like other shows. Sure, it has a stacked cast with one of the best actors on TV, and it revolves around the heist of the century – but it’s how you watch it that matters.

Just like Black Mirror’s Bandersnatch, it “takes a non-linear approach to storytelling, building intrigue and suspense uniquely, with Netflix members each having a different immersive viewing experience.”

Now that the show is out and fans have enjoyed the twists and turns in Kaleidoscope, we’ve broken down all the major roles in the full cast, including the actors and the characters that they play.

The official synopsis for Kaleidoscope reads: “Spanning 25 years, Kaleidoscope (previously titled Jigsaw) is an all-new anthology series following a crew of masterful thieves and their attempt to crack a seemingly unbreakable vault for the biggest payday in history.

“Guarded by the world’s most powerful corporate security team, and with law enforcement on the case, every episode reveals a piece of an elaborate puzzle of corruption, greed, vengeance, scheming, loyalties and betrayals. How did the crew of thieves plan it? Who gets away with it? Who can be trusted?”

To make this easier, we’ve split the full Kaleidoscope cast into three categories: the crew, the corporate security team, and the agents, and we’ve provided Netflix’s official description of their characters.

Jai Courtney plays Bob Goodwin, the “safe cracker.”

Jordan Mendoza plays Rj Acosta Jr., the “driver.”

“Shaggy and technical-minded, RJ is a self-taught engineer, a brilliant mechanic and car customizer, and a driver extraordinaire.

Tati Gabrielle plays Hannah Kim, the “protégé.”

“Intelligent, ambitious, and adaptable, Hannah is a woman who wears many hats — and is driven by far more than money. As a chameleon who flows between the world of high-stakes finance and low-lying crime, she will have to use everything in her bag of tricks to find a way up and out.”

Liz Kim: Soojeong Son

Soojeong Son plays Liz Kim, the “sister.”

“Liz is Hannah’s younger sister, a free spirit and aspiring DJ/immersive dance captain. She’s a source of joy to Hannah, but her laissez-faire attitude conflicts with Hannah’s deep work ethic. Together, they’ll have to find a way to support each other and work hand-in-hand if they want to come out on top.”

Carlos Sujo: Hemky Madera

“Carlos is Roger Salas’s right-hand man and head of security – not just for the company, but for Roger himself. Loyal and intense, Carlos is the one who Roger turns to when he needs something handled off-book. Very few people really understand what Carlos does for Roger, but they all know it’s best to leave him a wide berth and not get in his way.”

Agent Samuel Toby: Bubba Weiler

Bubba Weiler plays Agent Samuel Toby, the “partner.”

“Special Agent Samuel Toby is a boy scout in the FBI, the kind of guy who’d take a strawberry milkshake over a vodka on the rocks. He’s got a sharp mind, and an immense admiration for fellow Agent Nazan Abbasi that seeps over from professional to personal.

“He’s attracted to her intelligence and skill in the field and devotedly aids her as she attempts to track down the crew. But when he realizes Nazan is way too deep into her obsession, he’ll have to choose whether his priorities lie in being on the right side of his career, or the right side of justice.”
