Guest stars

There are a lot of guest stars who protray minor characters of the show, i.e. characters who appear in a single episode of the TV series, only. They are indicated either in the credits superimposed on the scenes following the opening credits or in the end credits of the episode in which they appear. Some of them are not credited at all.

Shia LaBeouf Herbert 9

Multiple roles cast

Some of the cast members protray two or more different minor characters in the show. Generally, the importance of the characters is so small and the appearances of the actor have a sufficient time distance so that the similarity of the portrayed characters is not obvious to the viewer.

References

  1. Busy Philipps is not credited in the opening credits themselves, but immediately after them by "also starring". Only in the pilot, she is credited as "co-starring" in the end credits. She is also present in all the promotional group pictures of the freaks and appears in all the 18 episodes so that she nevertheless can be regarded as a regular cast member.
