Meet the We Have a Ghost cast: who's who in the new Netflix comedy horror

Meet the cast of We Have a Ghost, including stars from Marvel, Stranger Things, Army of the Dead and of course Jennifer Coolidge.

The cast of We Have a Ghost, a Netflix horror comedy

We Have a Ghost is a horror-comedy on Netflix that's fit for the whole family to enjoy.

It tells the story of the Presley family, who moves into a haunted house. Befriending the resident specter brings some useful supernatural perks, as well as fame and attention, but also the attention of cranks, kooks and the CIA.

So this is a story of a family coming together, and if you've watched it, you might have spotted some recognizable stars in the lead roles. So here's a guide to who's who in We Have a Ghost.

Anthony Mackie as Frank Presley

The dad of the Presley family is Frank, and between financial difficulties, marital issues and a seeming predisposition for pyramid schemes, he's led his family into dire straits. However his decision to share videos of the ghost could turn things around.

Anthony Mackie is a huge star largely thanks to his recurring role as Sam Wilson / The Winter Soldier in loads of Marvel projects, especially the recent Captain America sequels, Avengers: Endgame and spinoff The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, and he's set to reprise the role in a bunch more movies and TV shows.

Netflix has used the actor in plenty of Originals before including Outside the Wire , Black Mirror and Altered Carbon . He's also been in The Hurt Locker, The Adjustment Bureau and Million Dollar Baby, and is set to star in the upcoming adaptation of Twisted Metal.

Jahi Di'Allo Winston as Kevin Presley

Kevin is the youngest of the two Presley brothers, and while he's normally a recluse who only goes anywhere with his headphones in, his bonding with Ernest helps him come out of his shell.

Despite his young age, Jahi Di-Allo Winston has been in quite a few projects. He was the lead character in Netflix series Everything Sucks! and has also been in Queen & Slim , The Dead Don't Die and The Upside.

David Harbour as Ernest

Ernest is the ghost haunting the house the Presley's move into, but a poltergeist he is not — in fact, he's not very good at scaring people at all. Frank can't talk or remember his death, but with the help of the Presley family he'll dig into his past.

You probably recognize David Harbour as one of the stars of hit Netflix series Stranger Things , as the actor plays Sheriff Jim Hopper in every one of the seasons so far, but he's been in a lot more.

Harbour has also been in Black Widow, Hellboy, Violent Night, Extraction, Black Mass, The Equalizer, End of Watch, The Newsroom and Suicide Squad in the last few years. He's also scheduled to reprise his Black Widow role in further Marvel projects, and like Mackie will star in an upcoming video game adaptation, this time the movie version of hit video racing series Gran Turismo.

Erica Ash as Melanie Presley

The mother of the Presley family, Melanie isn't as keen on the whole 'monetizing haunted house' scheme as her husband and sons, worried that this could be a case of Frank repeating his past mistakes.

Erica Ash is perhaps most recognizable for her role as a main character in Survivor's Remorse but she's also been in Uncle Drew and Scary Movie V, as well as sketch shows like The Big Gay Sketch Show and MADtv.

Jennifer Coolidge as Judy Romano

Judy Romano, otherwise known as the West Bay Medium, as a TV parapsychologist who decides to host an episode with Frank and the Presleys, thinking that Ernest is a hoax. She's quite shocked to discover the ghost is, in fact, real.

It seems that Jennifer Coolidge is in basically everything these days: in the last year she's been in Prime Video original movie Shotgun Wedding , hit TV show The White Lotus and the popular Netflix series The Watcher .

Coolidge has been a popular and recognizable actress for many years though having also been in Promising Young Woman , American Pie, Epic Movie, A Cinderella Story, 2 Broke Girls, friends spin-off Joey and the Legally Blonde movies.

Tig Notaro as Leslie Monroe

Leslie Monroe used to work for the CIA investigating paranormal phenomena, before the division was shut down 20 years ago. However when Ernest shows up in the house, the CIA reforms the division to investigate the ghost.

Tig Notaro is primarily a stand-up comedian, having worked on many comedy series like Inside Amy Schumer, The Sarah Silverman Program, Comedy Bang! Bang! and Comedy Central Presents , and has also been in comedies like One Mississippi, Instant Family and Your Place or Mine.

More recently, she's been taking on more dramatic roles, like in Army of the Dead and   Star Trek: Discovery .

We Have A Ghost Cast: Where You've Seen The Actors From Netflix's Horror Comedy

  • Oops! Something went wrong. Please try again later. More content below

Many of Netflix’s original horror movies are among the best horror movies I have seen in more recent years. Joining forces with the platform is Christopher Landon — the writer and director of recent favorites from Blumhouse , Freaky and the Happy Death Day films — for his latest horror-comedy movie , We Have a Ghost .

Based on the short story, “Ernest,” by Geoff Manaugh, the new 2023 Netflix original movie follows an average family who get themselves into a situation that is far from ordinary after discovering that the lingering spirit of a deceased man lives in their new house. However, once you see who plays titular apparition, you will understand why this ghostly presence is nothing to be afraid of. That is where we shall start as we take a look at the actors who make up the We Have a Ghost cast.

David Harbour (Ernest)

As the ghostly, but friendly, Ernest, we have David Harbour, who has played characters who've, instead, had to deal with paranormal activity before — Hellboy in the comic book hero’s 2019 reboot and Hopper in the Stranger Things cast .

The two-time Emmy nominee’s other previous comic book roles include Dexter Tolliver in 2016’s Suicide Squad and Red Guardian in the Black Widow cast , and his other Netflix exclusive credits include Extraction and the animated series, Q-Force . The Violent Night cast ’s Santa actor is also known for Brokeback Mountain , Revolutionary Road , End of Watch , and Stephen Soderbergh’s twisty 2021 crime drama , No Sudden Move .

Anthony Mackie (Frank)

Playing Frank, the father of the household that Ernest haunts, is fellow MCU star Anthony Mackie who — before playing current Captain America , Sam Wilson — made his film debut in 8 Mile , which he followed with several more notable releases, including two Best Picture Oscar winners ( Million Dollar Baby and The Hurt Locker ).

We Have a Ghost is only Mackie’s latest collaboration with Netflix — following original sci-fi movies IO and Outside the Wire and original sci-fi TV shows Black Mirror and Altered Carbon Season 2, among other titles. Some of his most notable credits as off late include fact-based crime drama Detroit , 2018 social commentary The Hate U Give , and the recent time travel favorite , Synchronic , in 2019.

Jahi Winston (Kevin)

Starring as Frank’s son and Ernest's living friend, Kevin, is Jahi Winston, who debuted at age 13 on AMC’s short-lived drama, Feed the Beast , before landing his first movie with 2017’s The Upside , which he followed the next year with a role in Taraji P. Henson’s Blaxploitation throwback, Proud Mary , and his last Netflix original title — the short-lived series, Everything Sucks!

In 2019, he appeared alongside the all-star cast of The Dead Don’t Die and in one of the best Daniel Kaluuya movies, Queen & Slim . The following year, he led Charm City Kings — an HBO Max original no longer available on the platform — and the thriller The Violent Heart .

Tig Notaro (No Character Name Provided)

Another We Have a Ghost cast member who has worked with Netflix multiple times — such as for one of her stand-up specials , as Marianne Peters in the Army of the Dead cast , a documentary about her cancer diagnosis, and the hit rom-com, Your Place or Mine , most recently — is Tig Notaro. The comedian (also the co-creator and star of her short-lived, autobiographical Amazon Prime dramedy , One Mississippi ) has led a versatile acting career that includes comedy movies like 2018’s Instant Family and even one of the Star Trek TV shows — namely Star Trek: Discovery as Commander Jett Reno.

Erica Ash (No Character Name Provided)

The last you might have seen of We Have a Ghost cast member Erica Ash on Netflix is in her recurring role of Grace on Family Reunion , but her earliest credits include breakout gigs on sketch comedy series The Big Gay Sketch Show and MADtv , a notable feature film role in 2013’s Scary Movie V , and hilarious performance on BET’s Real Husbands of Hollywood as co-creator Kevin Hart’s ex-wife, Bridgette.

After appearing in 2018’s sports comedy , Uncle Drew , she led the 2019 crime thriller, Skin in the Game and earned a recurring role on The CW’s Legacies . More recently, Ash leant her voice to HBO’s animated DC TV show , Aquaman: King of Atlantis , appeared in the Shudder original anthology horror movie, Horror Noire , and returned to sketch comedy with an episode of HBO’s A Black Lady Sketch Show .

Jennifer Coolidge (No Character Name Provided)

As a medium from the West Bay we have Jennifer Coolidge, whose own previous Netflix exclusive credits include the 2016’s Mascots (her latest of several mockumentaries directed by Christopher Guest), the 2021 LGBTQ+ holiday rom-com , Single All the Way , and The Watcher cast as a realtor.

However, some of her biggest fans may recognize her better from the American Pie cast as Stifler’s Mom, the Legally Blonde movies, or her Emmy-winning role in The White Lotus cast as Tanya McQuoid. Her eclectic career (which began with a Seinfeld episode) also includes a starring role on 2 Broke Girls , playing Carey Mulligan’s mom in Promising Young Woman , and the recent romantic action movie , Shotgun Wedding .

Faith Ford (No Character Name Provided)

Another member of sitcom royalty in the We Have a Ghost cast is Faith Ford, who earned five Emmy nominations for playing Corky Sherwood on Murphy Brown ( including the 2018 revival ), before playing the late Norm Macdonald ’s love interest on his self-titled sitcom and, later, playing one-half of the titular sisterly duo on ABC’s Hope & Faith . She also starred opposite Vin Diesel in 2005’s family-friendly action-comedy, The Pacifier , and appeared on star Craig Robinson’s Peacock original TV show , Killing It , in 2022.

Niles Fitch (No Character Name Provided)

Another Netflix veteran in the We Have a Ghost cast — with guest spots on Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Atypical , and Social Distance — is Niles Fitch, who debuted with a guest role on Tyler Perry’s House of Payne before earning a recurring role on Army Wives and landing his film debut with 2014’s St. Vincent . Soon after, he landed his best known role as a younger Randall Pearson alongside the This Is Us cast and, during that run, starred opposite Denzel Washington in Roman J. Israel, Esq. , played Uzo Aduba’s son in Miss Viriginia , and was in the Jenna Ortega-led coming-of-age drama , The Fallout .

Isabella Russo (No Character Name Provided)

Isabella Russo’s Netflix exclusive credits prior to joining this cast consist of one episode of two different animated series — Centaurworld and Princess Power . She also leant her voice to Apple TV+’s Wolfboy and the Everything Factory , but her notable live-action work includes two episodes of HBO’s Crashing and on episodes of both Law & Order: Special Victims Unit and Law & Order: Organized Crime that crossed over with one another in 2022.

Steve Coulter (No Character Name Provided)

Last, but not least, we have Jennifer Coolidge’s Shotgun Wedding co-star , Steve Coulter, whose very impressive and lengthy resume includes franchises like the Fast and Furious movies and the Conjuring Universe (both of which feature him as a priest) and other acclaimed films like Just Mercy and The Front Runner , to name a few. His most notable screen roles as of late include Jennifer Walters’ boss in the She-Hulk cast ,  Montana State University president Mel Thompson in the Yellowstone cast , and Sheriff Tommy Bailey on Starz’s P-Valley , also to name just a few.

See who gets spooked on We Have a Ghost by streaming the new horror-comedy on Netflix now.

11 Best Family Halloween Movies on Netflix

New movies on streaming: 'blue beetle,' 'gran turismo,' + more, is 'gran turismo' a true story, is 'gran turismo' streaming on netflix, max, or amazon prime video.

After cementing our love for him as Hopper in  Stranger Things , actor David Harbour is making the jump to yet another Netflix project with We Have a Ghost .  In a newly-released trailer, we see the beloved actor, who recently starred as a badass Santa Claus in Violent Night ,  in pure paranormal form.

The teaser opens with a family looking to get a fresh start in their new home. “Nothing, like, bad happened here, right?” actress Erica Ash is seen asking a realtor alongside Anthony Mackie , who plays her onscreen husband.

Meanwhile, Jahi Winston walks through the halls of his school, where he notices the odd way people are staring at him. One student, played by Kat Conner Sterling, tells him, “You moved into the House of Death? Everyone says it’s haunted.”

While investigating darkness of his new home, the teen accidentally captures a ghost, played by Harbour, on the camera of his phone. Instead of the normal terrified response one may have to finding out they have a surprise (dead) boarder in their home, the boy decides to post his footage on social media, making him and his family overnight sensations.

However, a mystery soon unravels as he befriends the ghost, whose name is Ernest. While working toward uncovering the mute phantom’s past, the teen detectives soon become a target of the CIA.

Plus, beloved White Lotus star Jennifer Coolidge appears in the movie as a psychic medium with a large, red hairdo. In the teaser, she’s seen screaming and tossing herself out of a window at the sight of Harbour’s ghostly apparition. You know, the normal response to witnessing a ghost.

Luckily, you won’t have to wait much longer for We Have a Ghost to join your Netflix queue. The movie is set to release on the streaming platform on Friday, Feb. 24. You can watch the full trailer above.

Where You've Seen The Cast Of Netflix's We Have A Ghost Before

Ernest rises through the floorboards

Netflix has had quite the run of top-notch original movies lately, with 2022 seeing the release of "The Gray Man," Guillermo del Toro's "Pinocchio" and Rian Johnson's "Knives Out" sequel, "Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery." Not content with those run of films, however, they've continued into 2023 with the release of "We Have a Ghost," a supernatural comedy that breathes new life into the ghost buddy comedy sub-genre.

In the film, the Presley family moves into a new home that seems too good to be true. But young Kevin finds that the house is hiding a spooky secret when he records a video of a ghost in the attic. As Kevin befriends the apparition, his dad wants to profit off their discovery, and soon their new home becomes the talk of the town. But while some come out of curiosity, others have more sinister aims. In the middle of it all is Ernest, the ghost who can't seem to remember his old life, which prompts Kevin to set out with his friends to find out why he can't cross over to the other side.

A delightfully fun romp for the whole family, "We Have a Ghost" stars Jahi Di'Allo Winston, David Harbour, Anthony Mackie, Isabella Russo, and a cast of names you may not recognize at first glance. But you've probably seen them somewhere before — we're here with a primer to tell you all about them, and what else they've appeared in.

Jahi Di'Allo Winston

Despite being just 19 upon the release of "We Have a Ghost," actor Jahi Di'Allo Winston — who plays teenager Kevin Presley — already has quite the filmography, though it is his first project in a few years. In 2020, Winston played a supporting role in "The Violent Heart," a dark romantic drama headlined by Jovan Adepo, Grace Van Patten, Lukas Haas, and Mary J. Blige. But it's not as if "We Have a Ghost" is his first leading role: That same year he also got top billing in the HBO Max film "Charm City Kings," where he played dirt biker Mouse.

What might be most remarkable about Winston, however, is just how many big stars he's had the opportunity to act with at such a young age. This includes Daniel Kaluuya and Bokeem Woodbine in 2019's "Queen and Slim" and Bill Murray, Adam Driver, and Danny Glover in "The Dead Don't Die." In Neil Burger's "The Upside," he even got to star alongside the likes of Kevin Hart, Bryan Cranston , and Nicole Kidman.

You might also recognize Winston from a couple of TV roles. In addition to one-off guest spots in episodes of "The Resident" and "The Plug," the young actor starred with Peyton Kennedy and Patch Darragh in the Netflix teen comedy "Everything Sucks," set in an Oregon high school in the 1990s. In his very first on-screen role back in 2016, he had a recurring role in AMC's "Feed the Beast," a crime drama starring "Friends" alum David Schwimmer.

David Harbour

Actor David Harbour plays the titular spirit in "We Have a Ghost," a role that showcases his ability to give life (no pun intended) to offbeat characters. No doubt most audiences will recognize him from "Stranger Things," where he plays Sheriff Hopper. But while that's the show that brought Harbour to most people's attention, he's had a long and fruitful career outside of that series.

Starting out on TV, Harbour made guest appearances in several "Law & Order" shows before making the leap to the movies. He had small roles in "Kinsey," "Brokeback Mountain," and "War of the Worlds." We could rattle off a laundry list of major movies that Harbour had small roles in throughout the 2010s, including "Quantum of Solace," "End of Watch," and "The Equalizer," but it was back on TV where he started to gain the attention of audiences. He secured a recurring role in the short-lived ABC drama "Pan Am" in 2011, and then graduated to "The Newsroom," where he played TV anchor Elliot Hirsch.

In 2014, Harbour joined the main cast of a prime-time series, starring alongside Katherine Heigl and Alfre Woodard in the spy thriller "State of Affairs" as the White House Chief of Staff David Patrick. Following his breakout role as Jim Hopper, Harbour saw leading movie roles come his way: He took the starring role in the 2019 reboot "Hellboy," and played Red Guardian in Marvel's "Black Widow." In 2022's "Violent Night," he even played a deadly vigilante version of Santa Claus.

Anthony Mackie

Kevin Presley's father is none other than Anthony Mackie, another star who had a long career before his breakout role as Sam Wilson in the MCU. He's now Marvel's Captain America , but it's a long way from where Mackie started out in the early 2000s. Back then he was appearing in cult favorites like Eminem's "8 Mile" as rapper Papa Doc, one of his earliest film roles.

From there, Mackie took on supporting roles in the Denzel Washington remake of "The Manchurian Candidate" and Clint Eastwood's "Million Dollar Baby." Larger parts started coming his way later that decade: In 2006 he starred with Ryan Gosling in "Half Nelson," written by "Captain Marvel" scribes Ryan Fleck and Anna Boden, and led the basketball drama "Crossover." He played another athlete in the ESPY-nominated "We Are Marshall" with Matthew McConaughey, but it was 2008's Oscar-winning "The Hurt Locker" that earned him real attention.

Not all of his films have been all winners, though, with disappointments like "What's Your Number," "Real Steel," and "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter" mixed in as well. But after securing the role of Sam Wilson in "Captain America: The Winter Soldier," Mackie's career really took off. Since then, he's starred in Netflix's "Altered Carbon" and even played Martin Luther King Jr. in the HBO movie "All the Way" opposite Bryan Cranston.

Starring in the role of Melanie Presley, Kevin's mother, is Erica Ash. Readers might know Ash best from when she was part of the cast of the Starz series "Survivor's Remorse," the four-season comedy that also featured Mike Epps ("Next Friday") and Teyonah Parris ( "WandaVision" ). But that was far from her only major role. She was also a cast member on "MADtv" in the late 2000s, and had a recurring role as Bridgette Hart in "Real Husbands of Hollywood" with Kevin Hart.

In 2018, Ash led the cast of the BET legal drama "In Contempt," where she played New York lawyer Gwen Sullivan. She's had success on the big screen as well, appearing in a leading role in "Scary Movie 5" in 2013, then supporting Haley Bennett and Lucas Till in the horror thriller "Kristy" a year later. She appeared again with Mike Epps in "Uncle Drew" alongside Kyrie Irving and a host of real-life basketball stars like Shaquille O'Neal, Reggie Miller, and Nate Robinson. But her career also includes a number of indie projects that may have flown under the radar, such as the 2016 drama "Jean of the Joneses" and "Violet" which featured Olivia Munn, Justin Theroux, Todd Stashwick, and Steve Agee.

Niles Fitch

Rounding out the Presley family is Niles Fitch, who stars in "We Have a Ghost" as Kevin Presley's older brother Fulton. Fitch got his start as a child actor more than a decade ago, with his first role in an episode of the long-running Tyler Perry comedy "House of Payne." A few years later, Fitch turned up in a recurring role in Season 7 of "Army Wives" as Deuce Montclair, and later appeared in the Bill Murray drama "St. Vincent." But his star-making turn came two years later in the critically acclaimed prime-time drama "This is Us."

Fitch plays a young version of Randall in the parallel past storyline, eventually becoming a part of the main cast in the second season. The role earned him plenty of accolades, even winning him a Screen Actors Guild Award for his performance in 2019. Though the role of young Randall remains his most recognizable, he's also appeared in episodes of "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt," the Bill Burr comedy "Immoral Compass," and "Mixed-Ish," as well as two of episodes of "Atypical."

With "This is Us" wrapping up in 2022, Fitch is ready to move on to the next phase of his career, beginning with "We Have A Ghost." Whether he sticks with streaming movies, gets plucked for the next big blockbuster, or heads back to TV is anyone's guess.

Isabella Russo

"We Have a Ghost" isn't just about Kevin Presley and his family. When they find the ghost named Ernest, Kevin confides in his new school friend Joy, played by actress Isabella Russo , and the two set out to solve a past life mystery together. A relative newcomer to the screen, Russo can count "We Have a Ghost" as her first major movie role. Before it, she'd had just a short career on the small screen, getting her earliest part in a 2018 television movie titled "For Love."

Within a year, though, Russo was getting new roles elsewhere, including a two-episode stint on "Crashing," the quasi-autobiographical comedy from writer/director Pete Holmes about his life as a stand-up comic in New York City. Russo next did what most up-and-coming actors do: Find work in episodes of "Law and Order." In her case, she has the distinction of playing a character that crossed over two separate series' in the franchise, appearing in episodes of both "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" and the 2022 spin-off "Law & Order: Organized Crime."

Outside of on-screen performances, Russo has also done plenty of voicework in animation that might make her recognizable to younger audiences. She's played several roles on popular animated shows, which include her roles as Tali in four episodes of "Wolfboy and the Everything Factory," and characters in a pair of Netflix originals, "Centaurworld" and "Princess Power."

Every movie needs an antagonist, even a light-hearted supernatural family comedy like "We Need a Ghost." Filling that role in the Netflix movie is Tig Notaro, one of today's brightest comic stars. Tig was born in Pass Christian, Mississippi, before bouncing around from Houston to Denver. Eventually she landed in Los Angeles, where she began doing stand-up in the late 1990s after a brief career running her own booking and management firm. After the turn of the millennium, Tig found some success on television when in 2004, she appeared on "Comedy Central Presents."

Soon roles in TV comedies came her way, with a recurring part in "The Sarah Silverman Program" in the late 2000s, and a role on "In the Motherhood" in 2009. But it wasn't just indie work, as she later secured guest appearances on everything from "Community" to "The Office" in the early 2010s. She then got her own show in 2015, the semi-autobiographical comedy "One Mississippi" on Amazon Prime. She plays Tig Bavaro, an analog for herself, a young woman who deals with the death of her mother, a cancer diagnosis, and a double mastectomy, all hardships she encountered in her real life.

In 2019, Notaro joined the cast of "Star Trek: Discovery" in a recurring role as engineer Jett Reno. But audiences may also recognize her voice thanks to her popular comedy podcasts, "Don't Ask Tig" and "Tig and Cheryl: True Story," as well as her contributions to the now-defunct series "Professor Blastoff."

While Tig Notaro plays a CIA agent out to capture the ghost named Ernest in "We Have a Ghost," there's another, more sinister foil in the film, played by veteran character actor Tom Bower. But we have to preface our overview of Bower's career with the caveat that, due to it stretching back to the early 1970s, and with nearly 200 roles to his credit, we might not be able to help you identify exactly where you may have seen him before. But we'll do our best to give a brief rundown of some of his more prominent projects, which starts with the '70s sitcom "The Waltons."

In that iconic series, Bower showed up in more than 25 episodes as several different characters during its nine-season run. From there, Bower became a regular on TV, guesting on a number of popular hits like "Murder, She Wrote," "Miami Vice," and "Hill Street Blues," and continued making those kinds of one-off appearances for decades. This includes popping up in "NYPD Blue," and the "X-Files" in the '90s, "NCIS" and "Battlestar Galactica" in the 2000s, and "The Office" and "Criminal Minds" in the 2010s.

At the movies, Bower has also been a regular, with small roles in more films than we can count. Most recently, he played Lou in "El Camino," the "Breaking Bad" sequel film, but can also count action movies like "The Negotiator," "Clear and Present Danger," and "Aces: Iron Eagle III" among his credits.

Jennifer Coolidge

Some of the fun of "We Have a Ghost" comes from its goofy side characters who pop up when the Presley family tries to profit off the presence of Ernest the ghost. One of the best is local TV psychic Judy Romano, who comes to the house to meet the eponymous ghost for her show. Judy is played by actress Jennifer Coolidge, who has most recently made waves with her role as Tanya McQuoid-Hunt in the acclaimed HBO series "The White Lotus," which earned her an Emmy for her performance. 

Those who grew up in the '90s, however, probably remember her best for her role in "American Pie," where she played Stifler's mother. Not long after, Coolidge played Sherri Ann Cabot in Christopher Guest's "Best in Show," and she later took a role in Guest's 2003 follow-up, "A Mighty Wind." She was also Paulette in "Legally Blonde," leading to appearances in a string of classic early 2000s comedies like "Zoolander" and "Pootie Tang."

She can also proudly include the likes of "Seinfeld" and "Friends" on her resume, thanks to a pair of single-episode appearances. She had a recurring role on "The Secret Life of the American Teenager" and was part of the main cast of "2 Broke Girls" for its entire run. Coolidge also has experience behind the mic, providing voices for some of the best animated adventures in recent years, including "Rick and Morty," "Gravity Falls," and the HBO Max original "The Fungies."

Nicholas X Parsons

In addition to TV host and local medium Judy Romano, the presence of Ernest attracts a host of oddballs to the Presley home, and that includes Jesus Christ himself. Ok, maybe not the real Jesus Christ, but a man pretending to be, brought to you by actor Nicholas X. Parsons. You may not know his name, or even his face, but it's likely that you've seen him around, even if it's just in the background of a densely packed scene. While he does get a pretty fun role in "We Have a Ghost," Parsons has never had a big part in a hit TV series, or even a large recurring role, and is more often than not playing unnamed background parts. Still, his filmography is dotted with some popular projects.

Starting his career in the late '90s, Parsons began with an uncredited role in "Cry Wolf" from filmmaker Jeff Wadlow (director of "Kick-Ass 2"). What followed were mostly low-budget, little-seen indie films like "In the Pines" and television movies like "Big Mike" and "Mille and the Muse." Later in his career, he had blink-and-you'll-miss-it roles in hits like "Rock of Ages" and "Pain and Gain." But while it's unlikely you've noticed Parsons in those films, you may have been able to spot him on the small screen, where he turns up in episodes of "Burn Notice," "The Inbetweeners," and "Preacher."

Steve Coulter

If you think you've seen Steve Coulter before, you're probably right. In "We Have a Ghost," Coulter plays CIA Deputy Director Arnold Schipley, but just a year ago you may have seen him in Marvel's "She-Hulk: Attorney at Law" series on Disney+. There he plays She-Hulk's overbearing attorney boss Holden Holliway, partner at the firm Goodman, Lieber, Kurtzberg & Holliway. He was also Sheriff Tommy Bailey for a four-episode stint on the Starz series "P-Valley" not long before, and starred as real-life royalty Prince Charles in a pair of TV biopics, "Harry & Meghan: Escaping the Palace" and "Harry & Meghan: A Royal Romance."

If you're a horror fan, you might know Coulter as Father Gordon in three "Conjuring" films, plus the spin-off "Annabelle Comes Home." But while his career stretches back decades, some of his biggest hits have come more recently, with three episodes of the Kevin Costner hit "Yellowstone" under his belt, as well as three episodes of "House of Cards."

Other notable roles for Coulter include Reg Monroe on "The Walking Dead," and Elijah Bowman on "Banshee." Coulter has also made plenty of single-episode appearances, so don't be surprised if you see him show up in rewatches of "In the Heat of the Night," "One Tree Hill," or "Dawson's Creek."

The cast of "We Have a Ghost" has a handful of stars, a few newcomers, and a bunch of veteran character actors. But it also has at least one face that you probably know from some of TV's biggest hits of years gone by, even if you can't place it at first. That would be Faith Ford, who plays Barbara Mangold, and if there's any actor that has audiences pointing at the screen trying to trigger a memory of where they know them from, it's her.

Though it's been some time since she appeared in a high-profile project, Ford is best known for her role in the iconic '90s workplace sitcom "Murphy Brown," where she played journalist Corky Sherwood. She played the part for the series' entire 10-season run, earning herself five Emmy nominations in the process. After "Murphy Brown" went off the air, Ford got her own show, "Hope & Faith" alongside Kelly Ripa, Ted McGinley, and Megan Fox, which ran for three years.

Those were far from her only shows, though. In the early '90s, she was a member of the cast of "The Norm Show" with Norm Macdonald, and played the title role in the short-lived 1998 sitcom "Maggie Winters." In 2018, she returned to play Corky Sherwood in a single-season revival of "Murphy Brown," her first regular role since a run on "Carpoolers" in 2007. 

Movie Reviews

Now streaming on:

Christopher Landon makes wonderfully quirky horror films that defy the typical cynicism of the genre nowadays. He avoids the pretension of “elevated horror” by expressing contagious joy through his filmmaking in movies like “ Happy Death Day ,” " Happy Death Day 2U ," and “ Freaky .” Say what you will about their execution or quality overall; I don’t think anyone can argue against Landon having a damn blast while making them. His latest, “We Have a Ghost,” is at its best when Landon is allowed to be goofy in a way that just makes the viewer smile. Sadly, his writing isn’t as sharp as his directing, as the movie goes on way too long and through multiple endings, even as it seems content to repeat themes and images instead of building on the film’s interesting ideas. In the end, it’s a solid distraction, which is all most people are looking for on Netflix, but I’m hoping he makes “Happy Death Day 3” before revisiting this world.

Based on a short story called Ernest  by Geoff Manaugh , “We Have a Ghost” opens with the Presley family moving to a fixer-upper in Chicago. Father Frank ( Anthony Mackie ) is struggling to make ends meet and to maintain a healthy relationship with his increasingly-distant son Kevin (Jahi Di’Allo Winston, so good in “ Charm City Kings ” and on “Everything Sucks!”). Almost immediately after their arrival, Kevin is exploring the attic when he encounters a trapped soul named Ernest ( David Harbour , giving a silent performance). Ernest can’t talk but has been scaring away inhabitants since the ‘70s when he died. Kevin doesn’t get scared. He films Ernest with his phone, and there’s suddenly a viral ghost.

Imagine if there was an actual ghost all over TikTok and YouTube. What would happen? Landon doesn’t do nearly enough with this rich concept and just has people screaming outside the Presley home, including a guy dressed like Jesus. It’s interesting to watch Frank try to use Ernest’s existence as a cash infusion, becoming a cultural agent of sorts. He even brings in a local medium for an encounter with Ernest, a scene that allows for one of the film’s more impressive effects and potential memes from a Jennifer Coolidge cameo. But there’s not enough done with the idea of what proof of the afterlife would mean. It doesn’t have to be deeply philosophical, but even a little shallow exploration might have filled this concept out a bit.

Instead, “We Have a Ghost” shifts too much focus to a paranormal scientist named Dr. Leslie Monroe ( Tig Notaro ) and her CIA boss Arnold Schipley ( Steve Coulter ). Landon’s film becomes something of a chase/road movie in its midsection as Ernest, Kevin, and their scene-stealing neighbor Joy ( Isabella Russo ) try to escape the armed guards and get to the bottom of why this poor guy hasn’t fully moved to the next plane of existence. Of course, “We Have a Ghost” becomes a bit of a whodunit too as Ernest learns about what really happened to him, including the identity of his killer.

Harbour is effective in a performance that could have been all exaggerated mugging to compensate for zero dialogue, and Winston still feels like a future star; he's so confident and natural at a young age. There’s enough to like here just in the two of them to keep teens and their parents from checking social media too often while it plays, but it lacks that thrust that would make them put the phones down for good. There’s just a lack of urgency, especially in the final act, which repeats ideas and then ends more than once. This movie needs to hum like “Freaky” and “Happy Death Day,” which were notably shorter (and felt tighter). 

Even as “We Have a Ghost” sags in places, it never completely fades into the dull background of Netflix originals of late. We may not have an outright winner, but we do have a decent diversion.

‘We Have a Ghost’ Review: Me and My Boo

David Harbour stars as an apparition haunting a family’s home in this supernatural Netflix comedy.

  • Share full article

In a bedroom, a smiling ghost stands behind a man as the man speaks with his son, seated on the bed.

By Amy Nicholson

The screenwriter and director Christopher Landon (“Happy Death Day”) will nevermore shudder at a bump in the night. Henceforth, it will just be specters thanking him for “We Have a Ghost,” a cheery kids comedy heavily syruped with pro-ghoul propaganda. Gauging from his appearance, Ernest (David Harbour) — a kindly, nonverbal ghost so named for the embroidery on his bowling shirt — died during the Nixon administration. Since then, Ernest has done spirit fingers in the attic of a cartoonishly spooky three-story Queen Anne, although the creepiest thing about him is his combover.

The gag is that Ernest’s scares are no match for the Presleys, a modern family of the internet age — the demographic of the film’s intended audience, although its ideal viewers will dial down their cynicism and play along. When a Realtor (Faith Ford) hoodwinks the Presley clan into buying the place — “Nothing a little landscaping couldn’t fix,” she coos — the younger son, a shy teenager named Kevin (Jahi Winston), embraces Ernest like a rescue mutt. Kevin’s father, Frank (Anthony Mackie), and older brother, Fulton (Niles Fitch), however, want to use him to get rich and famous. Frank’s rap sheet of cash-grab gimmicks has already dissipated respect for him in the home; even so, he fares better than the kids’ mother, a character so underwritten she’s practically vapor. (Worse, the lead part of Kevin is almost as lifeless.)

Landon’s tale, based on a snarkier short story by Geoff Manaugh, presents Ernest as the first viral video proof-of-afterlife — an odd situation for an unassuming chap who passed away before the invention of Pong. Before you can say “Boo!” Ernest becomes a meme, a stunt challenge, and a cause célèbre among TikTok do-gooders (“Just because you’re not made of matter, it doesn’t mean you don’t matter”). He’s also a target for a C.I.A.-connected paranormal researcher, Dr. Monroe (Tig Notaro), out to boost her own clout.

The film grasps onto anything that will amuse itself for a scene: a stalker dressed like Jesus, a nifty car chase, an unconvincing romance between Kevin and his wacky neighbor Joy (Isabella Russo), who blasts energy into the film as soon as she enters blaring a slide trombone. Jennifer Coolidge also has a cameo as a blasé cable TV medium who visits the house and waves off Ernest as a hologram until he rattles the furniture and melts the skin off his face. These high jinks are so carefree about coherence that during this rampage, we hear the screech of a terrified cat. Do the Presleys own a cat? No.

Conveniently, Ernest’s personality has been wiped by a case of necrotic amnesia that allows this Greatest Generation ghost to pal around with today’s teenagers. In life, Ernest might not have been their first choice to babysit. In death, he’s graced with the empathy of E.T. — and when he makes contact with Notaro’s character, the world-weary doctor melts into a state of wonder as dewy as when Sam Neill made goo-goo eyes at a brachiosaur. How delightfully morbid to give the netherworld a Spielbergian gloss. For his next trick, Ernest can study some scare tactics in the Temple of Doom.

We Have a Ghost Rated PG-13 for language, suggestive references and violence tied to Ernest’s untimely death. Running time: 2 hours 6 minutes. Watch on Netflix.

‘We Have a Ghost’ Actor David Harbour on How Genre Roles Made Him a Horror Fan [Interview]

' src=

Happy Death Day  and  Freaky  director  Christopher Landon’s  Amblin-style family adventure  We Have a Ghost  premieres on  Netflix  on  February 24.

Written and directed by Landon,  We Have a Ghost  is an adaptation of a story written by  Geoff Manaugh,  published on Vice in October of that year.

In the film, “Finding a ghost named Ernest haunting their new home turns Kevin’s family into overnight social media sensations. But when Kevin and Ernest go rogue to investigate the mystery of Ernest’s past, they become a target of the CIA.”

We Have a Ghost  stars  Jahi Di’Allo Winston  ( Charm City Kings ) as Kevin and  David Harbour  (Violent Night, “Stranger Things”) as the ghostly Ernest. Ahead of the film’s premiere, Bloody Disgusting spoke with Harbour about what it’s like to portray a nonspeaking ghost and what keeps him returning to the genre.

Harbour may have a recognizable voice, but his character, Ernest, doesn’t speak beyond ghostly moans and groans. That required the actor to develop characterization through nonverbal means.

Harbour explains, “It was something where I thought initially it would make my job so much easier because you don’t have to learn any lines. All my friends joked about it, like, ‘Oh, it’s going to be such an easy part for you. You don’t have to learn any lines.’ Then I found it so much more difficult than having scenes where you have lines because you have to come up with all this behavior and what you want to reveal at certain times, and it’s a lot of responsibility to make those scenes work.

“It was intimidating, but ultimately, it was very exciting, and I’m proud of what Chris Landon was able to create with us; and certainly what Jahi and I were able to create between us. It was very special for me. “

How did this unique character evolve during Harbour’s process?

The actor recalls, “When I began thinking about it, and then when Chris [Landon] and I started talking- even things like the hairpiece came and the bowling shirt- it all came out of an idea that the movie has an E.T.  quality to it. There’s this alien presence, kind of, at the center that wants to go home. But he’s very alien. I thought a lot about what would be alien to this society. A lot of the movie deals with technology, TikTok, and Instagram, and they’re going viral and trying to make money on it. There’s a lot of kinetic energy, but the family disintegrated as a result of that. I think Ernest’s real need for family is something that [Kevin] and his dad see, and that’s what moves them to understand a little more about what we’ve lost in life.”

Harbour continues, “I wanted him to be a real product of a different world and time. Chris and I discussed how to do that and made him this guy. Also, some things would come up where I thought to myself, ‘wouldn’t it be cool if he had this quality of a scary old guy in a house with a comb-over and the whole thing?’ You’d see him, and originally, he’s staring at you. You think of all these movies like  Insidious . There’s always some old creepy woman or guy who’s around, going to kill the kids, and I wanted him to have that quality, but then to see that he’s three-dimensional. All of that was a process as we went into it, and it all developed further as we went .”

Between “Stranger Things,”  Hellboy ,  Violent Night , and now  We Have a Ghost , David Harbour is on a genre hot streak. It turns out that Harbour wasn’t necessarily a horror fan when he set out in acting, but his work has honed his love of the genre.

He tells BD, “That is something that attracts me to it, initially certainly attracted me a lot, and as I’ve gone on, I’ve become more of a fan of the horror genre in many different ways. But initially, I came into this business as a real true art movie geek, kind of Shakespeare and Tennessee Williams and doing these plays, even heady Brecht and crazy stuff. I approach all these characters with a lot of that intellectualism and a lot of that context. Then as I’ve gone on, I’ve fallen more and more in love with the genre stuff. Yeah, I started approaching it from, as you would say, the heart place or a conceptual place, and as I’ve gone on, it is what I like to see in movies. I like to see genre stuff. I like to see sci-fi, horror, and even comic books. Our modern version of Shakespeare, in a sense. It’s like our modern mythologies are expressed this way, and I’m here for it. “

We Have a Ghost touches on the toll social media can have on a family, highlighting something the genre does so well: reflect the current social climate with a heightened sense of reality.

Harbour reflects on why the genre is so successful at this, “First of all, I do think it’s the only place where you can have social commentary because you can have racism be expressed as an alien creature in a world like that. You see Blomkamp’s  District 9 ; you’re dealing with incredible social commentary there. Also, I think there is something within us that desires a mythical experience. I mean, our lives are somewhat mythic. The fact that we can conceive of our own death is a pretty crazy thing for a creature to walk around with. I think that we’re all striving for this transcendence. Comic book heroes, or even the horror genre, overcoming a monster contain this transcendent experience. I certainly like it, and I think a lot of people do.”

Medium Ken Boggle Discusses ‘Living for the Dead’ and Working with Executive Producer Kristen Stewart [Interview]

' src=

Welcome back to DEAD Time . Like me, you may watch a lot of paranormal television shows, but you’ve never seen anything quite like Living for the Dead , which is streaming on Hulu. From the creators of Queer Eye and Executive Producer Kristen Stewart , Living for the Dead features a team of five Queer ghost hunters, or “ghost hunties” as they refer to themselves, each with unique paranormal abilities and backgrounds, and a whole lot of heart.

The team travels the country in an RV and consists of investigator Alexandré LeMay , spiritual healer Juju Bae , medium and tarot reader Ken Boggle , podcaster and researcher Roz Hernandez , and psychic medium Logan Taylor . Kristen Stewart narrates each episode as the team investigates infamous haunted locations like The Clown Motel in Nevada, Waverly Hills Sanatorium in Kentucky, and The Copper Queen Hotel in Arizona. Each investigation delves into the history of the location as the team members try to determine the cause of unexplained activity, with the hopes of bringing peace to both the living and the dead, as well as acceptance and understanding.

This month, Bloody Disgusting had the pleasure of talking with Ken Boggle about being a medium and tarot reader for more than thirty years, working with Kristen Stewart and the rest of the team on Living for the Dead, his favorite haunted location, and a lot more.

Living For The Dead — From the creators of “Queer Eye,” five fabulous, queer ghost hunters criss-cross the country, helping the living by healing the dead. As they explore some of the world’s most infamous haunted locations, they’ll shed light on those not seen and illuminate untold stories. Together they’ll push past boundaries to bring acceptance to the misunderstood – living and dead. This is “Living For The Dead,” Ghost Hunties! Ken Boggle, shown. (Photo by: Hulu)

Bloody Disgusting: When did you first know you had the ability to communicate with the dead?

Ken Boggle: For as long as I can remember I was always having a conversation with someone who wasn’t there in physical form. Then, one day our family moved into this incredibly odd house and the backyard was just a few feet away from an old cemetery. Some of the headstones were just huge rocks. We had terrible things happening in the house and I would lie in bed, and I could hear spirits walking down the hall and they would circle my bed. I was about eight years old at the time and this would happen almost every night, so I could barely sleep. I went to see my grandmother and she said, “Honey, you look terrible,” which was her way of saying, “I love you. What’s wrong?” I cried and told her, and she said, “Well, honey your dad is a religious nut and if he finds out about this, we’re all in trouble. But I can help you because I’m the same way.” So, my granny took me by the hand and led me through psychic development and learning how to read, not just cards, but coffee grounds and things in nature. Granny could read the falling of a leaf from a tree and tell you what was going to happen. She was incredible.

The creepiest thing about it was that the male spirit who would walk in front of three female spirits had something wrong with his leg. You would hear a step and then a little bit of a drag and my heart would just race. I would turn and look over at the doorway and he would turn and look into the doorway and see me, and then they would begin to walk into the room. It was horrible.

BD: What was it like working with Kristen Stewart on Living for the Dead and how did she put the team together?

KB: Kristen Stewart is one of the most amazing people. She’s so thoughtful and she’s very conscious of what she says and what she does. She’s just amazingly deep; she runs like a river. She’s really deep and just amazing. They put out a casting call on social media. I had already done a TV show called Tarot Date with Ken Boggle for a small streaming platform for years and I really didn’t want to do television again. One of the producers from the previous show called me up and said, “Well, I just submitted an application for this show, and they asked me who I wanted to work with on the show, and I suggested you.” I was really trying to avoid it and they told me Kristen Stewart was the Executive Producer. So, I filled out an application and submitted videos. From the moment I started engaging with the casting company, I was like, “Oh wait, no I was wrong. This is something I want to do.” I started meeting people with Scout Productions, an amazing production company, and I was just floored by how fantastic they were. Thousands and thousands of people submitted applications to be on the show and they narrowed it down to twelve people.

They took all twelve of us to a haunted mansion in the Hollywood Hills and said, “Let’s see how you all interact with each other.” Eventually, there were seven of us left and we started a text group and tried to get to know each other and build some relationships. Sometime after that, it was down to five of us and we went to a new group chat and started calling each other. Before you knew it, we were in an RV heading to a clown motel [laughs]!

BD: Do you have a favorite haunted location from your time on the show, and why?

KB: It would have to be the Louisville Palace Theater in Kentucky, just because of the architecture, and also because we didn’t have to sleep there [laughs]. Also, I am Ken from Kentucky [laughs], so it’s a part of me. I was so happy to show my friends this amazing place that I had been to a bunch of times. We had a lot of things happen there. There was a generational ghost story— we helped a gentleman come to terms with the loss of his grandfather, and some underlying issues with his mom, and also kind of helped him open up. So much happened in that episode. It is one of my favorite places to investigate, but I also loved going to Waverly Hills. It’s very hard to pick one location.

Ken Boggle, shown. (Photo by: Hulu)

BD: I’m also from the South, so I was wondering what it was like for you growing up in Kentucky as a Queer person who also interacts with the dead?

KB: I don’t remember a lot of my childhood because it was so terrible. Honestly, there were times I didn’t want to wake up another day. I know it’s a sad thing to say and it’s really heavy, but I just wanted it all to stop. When I became homeless at fifteen, because my parents decided they didn’t want a Queer son, everything changed. I had an apartment and a job, and I stopped taking the abuse from the people around me, including family and schoolmates. I stopped accepting it and started fighting back. There was graffiti about me on the walls in the bathroom at school, people would spit at me, and I was beaten up. It was horrible. It was so bad during high school that I decided that no one could know about the paranormal aspects of my life because I was already in bad shape, and I thought it would make things worse. I used to read palms for girls at school before class would start, but I stopped doing it because it was already too dangerous for me.

BD: I am so sorry that happened to you.

KB: I appreciate your kindness, but I’m not, because the end result is I am able to connect with people about any real pain or any real struggle. I’m able to empathize and get into that space with them and help pull them through it. So, if I have to suffer a hundred years to help one person, why not do that? I got a message from a lady who said that her fifteen-year-old daughter had swallowed a bottle of pills trying to kill herself. While she was in the hospital, the mom brought their Roku box from home, plugged it into the TV, and they watched Living for the Dead . They watched the entire series together and the daughter said to her mother, “Can you please find out how to get in touch with Ken and tell him I appreciate it and I think it’s going to be okay.” That makes all of it worth it. It’s all worth it if I can help a fifteen-year-old kid who used to be me. I got it. I understood it. That means the world to be able to help someone like that

BD: Everyone on the team has different abilities and different personalities and you all have such great chemistry. If you had to choose one memory from your time on Living for the Dead, what would be your favorite memory of working with the team?

KB: My favorite memory was being in the RV when Roz was driving, Logan was next to her, Alex was on the bench, and Juju was in front of me. Nothing crazy or fantastical happened. It was just the way the sunlight came through and hit Alex’s hair and the way Roz was just rattling off something hilarious. Juju was in this deep place of contemplation and Logan was twisting that family stone that he wears. And it just hit me that I am the luckiest person in the entire world. I’m so sorry I’m getting emotional; I miss them so much. I’m the luckiest person in the world to be able to look over and see these four beautiful faces and know that they are as good inside as they are beautiful outside and to have this experience, and to have that moment where we were just five friends traveling. It was just this really beautiful moment that was remarkable.

The ending of We Have a Ghost explained: What happened to Ernest, Randy and Kevin?

  • Oops! Something went wrong. Please try again later. More content below

Netflix ’s new film, We Have a Ghost , dropped last weekend and fans are loving it. The comedy movie’s star-studded cast includes the iconic Jennifer Coolidge (think The White Lotus and Legally Blonde ), Marvel ’s Anthony Mackie, and Stranger Things ’ David Harbour.

It follows the Presley family who - as the title suggests - find out a ghost is haunting their home. So, they use their newfound supernatural friend, Ernest, to become internet celebrities but they soon find themselves in trouble.

The film features comedy, suspense and a dramatic plot twist which may have left you with some questions. So, here is the ending of We Have a Ghost explained.

Warning: Spoilers ahead!

How does We Have A Ghost end? Explainer

Around halfway through the film, we find out that ghost, Ernest (played by David Harbour), is in fact not actually Ernest. He is Ernest’s brother-in-law, Randy, and Ernest himself is still alive!

The Presley family then track down the real Ernest who tells them that Randy probably drank himself to death after his wife died giving birth to their daughter, June.

But, Randy appears and angrily confronts Ernest, and we later learn that Ernest murdered Randy and buried him in the back garden so he and his ill wife could keep his daughter, June, for themselves.

Ernest later tries to kill teenager Kevin (Jahi Di'Allo Winston) out of fear that he will reveal the truth, but Kevin is saved by his father, Frank (Anthony Mackie) and Randy the ghost. In the altercation, Frank pushes Ernest out of the window to his death to save his son.

With our villain out of the way, Frank goes on to find Randy’s now grown-up daughter, June, and reunite her with the ghost of her father – so wholesome!

With a newfound sense of closure, Randy disappears, and the Presley family decide to move. At the end of the film, Kevin asks his now-girlfriend Joy is she thinks Randy can still hear them, and she says maybe. After they leave the room, a bulb begins to flicker suggesting that Randy is never too far away from the Presley family. Awww.

We Have a Ghost is streaming on Netflix now.

His parents Kenneth and Nancy are both in the real estate industry, where his father specialized in the commercial side, and his mother was on the domestic side of the industry. David's early life was surrounded around New York. David completed high school at Byram Hills High School in Armonk, New York and for his higher education, David attended Dartmouth College, where the actor was a member of the Sigma Phi Epsilon chapter.

He then appeared in five episodes on the soap opera 'As the World Turns' from 1999-2001. He again did a small role in' Law & Order: Special Victims Unit' as a child murderer. Apart from appearing on Television, David continued to act in theatre. He did some notable plays including 'Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?' as Longacre in 2005, which resulted in getting him a Tony nomination.
