The cast of Dummy just got a little bigger. According to Deadline, Meredith Hagner has been cast to play Barbara on the short-form platform, Quibi. She will play opposite Anna Kendrick (Cody) and Donal Logue (Cody's boyfriend).
Barbara is Cody's boyfriend's inanimate sex doll, who can only be heard by Cody. Barbara fancies herself a feminist and is described as,
A spoiled, jealous, and manipulative valley girl who will do whatever it takes to get her way. After she is discarded by her original owner, she convinces Cody to take her home so that she can be the inspiration to help cure Cody’s writers block.
Dummy is a serialized movie-length story told in chapters that are less than 10 minutes long.
Hagner is currently starring on TBS' Search Party as Portia. Soap fans may remember Hagner from As the World Turns, where she played Liberty from 2008 to 2010.
