The Most Surprising ‘Zombieland: Double Tap’ Cameos From the Trailer

It’s the moment fans have been waiting nearly a decade for. The sequel to the 2009 hit action-comedy, Zombieland, is on its way, and the first full-length trailer has been released. The film brings back Tallahassee (Woody Harrelson), Columbus (Jesse Eisenberg), Witchita (Emma Stone), and Little Rock (Abigail Breslin), who are joined by a few others along the way. Here’s a look at the cameo appearances from the Zombieland: Double Tap trailer.

Zoey Deutch

Deutch portrays Madison, a seemingly ditzy new member of the crew who rubs Witchita the wrong way. Given the relationship between Witchita and Columbus, and the former’s focus on finding Little Rock, you can see how the arrival of the young blonde might be a little annoying.

Though she’s only in her early 20s, Deutch has sparked interest as an up-and-comer with a lot of promise in Hollywood. To date, her most notable roles have been as Juliet Martin in the short-lived CW drama Ringer and in the Netflix rom-com Set It Up

Little Rock leaves the group when she meets Berkeley, a young man who gives off strong “flower child” vibes (his name doesn’t help). We’re going to assume he’s something of a love interest for the character, given that in the previous film, Breslin was a bit too young for romance.

Jogia has made a name for himself in TV series such as Nickelodeon’s Victorious and the Freeform drama Twisted. He’s also done well on the SyFy network, appearing in short-lived shows Caprica and Ghost Wars. He currently stars in the comedy Now Apocalypse

Rosario Dawson

We may also see Tallahassee in a romantic scenario in Double Tap. He’s shown running into Nevada, played by Rosario Dawson, who appears to be just the independent, no-nonsense woman he needs.

Dawson is an acclaimed actress with many credits to her name. You may recognize her from films such as noir drama Sin City and musical adaptation Rent. Or maybe you’re more familiar with her TV work in the Marvel-Netflix Universe as nurse Claire Temple, or her recent recurring role as Petra’s lawyer-turned-girlfriend J.R. in Jane the Virgin

Luke Wilson

Wilson’s Albuquerque shows up in a cowboy hat, driving a monster truck, and giving everybody attitude. Sound familiar? Witchita and Columbus realize right away that he and Tallahassee are very much alike. 

Wilson is another actor you’ve seen in many, many films. He’s best known for his comedic work like Old School, Legally Blonde, and The Ridiculous 6. Wilson has often acted alongside his brother, Owen Wilson. In recent years, he’s spent more time on TV, starring in the HBO series Enlightened. Wilson is set to recur in the upcoming DC Universe show Stargirl

When Albuquerque shows up, acting a lot like Tallahassee, he brings with him his own younger, curly-haired sidekick, Flagstaff, who Witchita recognizes bears a resemblance to Columbus. That gawky, sort-of nervous character is played by Middleditch.

Middleditch has been acting professionally for about 10 years, but you likely know him from one specific role. The actor portrays Richard Hendricks, founder of Pied Piper in Silicon Valley. You’ve likely heard Middleditch’s voice in animated hits such as Rick and Morty and Bob’s Burgers. He’s starred in his first big action movie this year with Godzilla: King of the Monsters.
