Wayne Brady is a performer through and through. From acting to singing, the man does it all, so it only seems appropriate that he’s the one portraying the Devil’s right-hand man — King Dice. As suggested by the name, this is a character who loves a good game. Throughout gameplay, you come across him frequently any time you have to go through a Die House, where he functions as a gatekeeper. He’s also the second-to-last boss you have to go up against, and some would argue he’s the toughest, seeing how you have to battle a bunch of his minions and defeat them first before you even get a chance to attack King Dice.
The clip establishes King Dice as a beloved entertainer, and fans have packed his auditorium to the brim to see him perform. Naturally, there’s more to this guy than meets the eye, and based on that sinister smile, it’s clear he’s up to no good. Some may feel disappointed that neither Cuphead nor his brother, Mughead, show up, but all good things come with time.
For now, anyone excited for the show can look forward to Wayne Brady playing a prominent presence. Netflix hasn’t revealed much regarding other cast members except for Tru Valentino and Frank Todaro voicing Cuphead and Mughead, respectively. The clip ends with a message saying how the show is “Coming Soon,” but that isn’t nearly soon enough.
