Netflix Taps Comedian Ayo Edebiri to Voice Big Mouth's Missy as Jenny Slate Exits

Netflix has officially recast the voice of Missy Foreman-Greenwald, two months after Jenny Slate stepped down from the role on Big Mouth. Writer, producer, comedian and actor Ayo Edebiri has been tapped to replace Slate, and as Variety reported, the actress booked the role “just a few weeks ago.”

“I was definitely a very uncomfortable child, so I think the show speaks to that and a lot of those feelings, which still resonate with me as an adult,” Edebiri told Variety. “I’m back home in my childhood bedroom right now and on my bookshelf in between A Series of Unfortunate Events is Bill Clinton’s autobiography and Nelson Mandela’s autobiography and a translation of The Iliad in Latin. I was a true dork. So I don’t think I have to go too far to connect with Missy.”
