The version of Chucky in the horror remake Child’s Play (out June 21) may be powered by technology rather than the soul of serial killer — as was the case in the original films — but, let’s face it, the Mark Hamill-voiced killer doll doesn’t need too much introduction. So, what other characters feature in the film? A new behind-the-scenes featurette addresses that question, introducing Aubrey Plaza‘s single mother Karen Barclay, Gabriel Bateman’s Chucky-owning Andy Barclay, and Brian Tyree Henry’s cop, Mike.
“I’m really excited about playing the role of Karen,” says Plaza in the video. “The idea of playing a young, single mom was really appealing to me. Honestly, just to work with Gabriel and Brian, I think both of them are incredible actors.”
“Mike is very loyal and very trustworthy,” says Henry. “He’s a police officer, and he meets this little kid Andy, who really doesn’t have any friends.”
“Andy is more mature than most kids his age, I would say,” says Bateman. “And he has a hearing aid, which makes him pretty insecure, so he doesn’t really socialize much. And he gets really attached to Chucky, because he’s really vulnerable.”
