Harden, in addition to winning an Oscar for her supporting role in 2000's Pollock, is a three-time Emmy nominee who has starred in The Morning Show, The Newsroom, Code Black, Fifty Shades of Grey, Damages and Mystic River.

Astin is likely most recognized from his time in the Pitch Perfect franchise, though he also has starred in Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, Ground Floor and an arc on Grey's Anatomy season 18.

The rest of the regular cast of So Help Me Todd includes Madeline Wise (Star Trek: Picard season 2) as Allison, Tristen J. Winger (2023's White Men Can't Jump) as Lyle, Inga Schlingmann (Law & Order: SVU) as Susan and Rosa Arredondo (Roswell, New Mexico) as Francey.
