She’s going to blow this popsicle stand in Barbie Land! Real World here we come! 😜
Gerwig and Ryan Gosling will star in the upcoming movie, however, they are far from the only Barbie and Ken dolls. Simu Liu, Kingsley Ben-Adir, Ncuti Gatwa, and Scott Evans are playing variations of Ken, while the likes of Dua Lipa, Emma Mackey, Alexandra Shipp, Kate McKinnon, Hari Nef, and more are playing variations of Barbie.
A running joke in the “Barbie” character posters is that each Barbie actor is playing a version of Barbie that has a unique profession (Issa Rae’s Barbie is president, Dupa Lip’a Barbie is a mermaid, Nicola Coughlan’s Barbie is a diplomat), while all of the Ken actors are simply just playing Ken. The character posters also provide a first look at Helen Mirren as the narrator, Will Ferrell as a Mattel CEO, and Michael Cera as Allan.
