Bill & Ted Face the Music has cast Brigette Lundy-Paine and Samara Weaving as the daughters of the titular dudes.
Lundy-Paine, who has appeared in The Glass Castle and Netflix’s Atypical, will play Billie Logan, daughter of Ted “Theodore” Logan (Keanu Reeves). Weaving, whose credits include Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, will take the role of Bill S. Preston Esquire’s (Alex Winter) daughter Thea. Based on those names, it appears the pair named their daughters after each other, which is perfect.
“When we saw Samara and Brigette together, it was like déjà vu. It was exactly the way we felt when we first saw Keanu and Alex,” producer Scott Kroopf said in a statement. “We are so thrilled to have this funny and unique pair join the Bill and Ted team!”
Bill & Ted Face the Music was officially confirmed in the summer of 2018 when Reeves and Winter reunited at the Cannes Film Festival to make the announcement. “We couldn’t be more excited to get the whole band back together again,” said Keanu and Alex. “Chris and Ed wrote an amazing script, and with Dean at the helm we’ve got a dream team!”
Reeves later revealed that the film would take place about 25 years after second Bill & Ted film after the duo were “supposed to write the song that was supposed to unite the world and bring peace and everything, but they haven’t.”
