Ever since The Bubble, directed by Judd Apatow, was released on Netflix on April 1, it has been receiving so many negative criticisms. The film received a score of 24% on Rotten Tomatoes and 4.8 on IMDB. Most of the reviews describe the movie as a “not funny comedy” arguing that it tries to do too much and never gives you a punchline when it’s supposed to. There is one positive point most reviewers agree on, and that is the quality of the acting performed by The Bubble cast members, which was not enough to save the movie, yet fun to watch.
The Bubble Netflix movie is about a group of actors trying to shoot a blockbuster franchise movie called Cliff Beasts 6 while being in quarantine at a posh hotel in the U.K. Since it’s been only a few days after the release of the movie, the viewership numbers are not in yet. So, we are yet to know how many people tuned in to watch the movie. Though, with its stellar cast, The Bubble seems like it will attract a good number of viewers. The cast members, including the director Apatow’s wife Leslie Mann and daughter Iris Apatow, put on a good show and that may be the only aspect of the movie that makes it worth watching.
Iris Apatow plays Krystal Kris, a young TikTok star who has never acted before but is recruited to play in Cliff Beasts 6. Since the character is clueless about acting and movie sets, she usually spends her time making TikTok videos with the stunt coordinator’s daughter.
Iris (19) is the 2nd daughter of Leslie Mann and Judd Apatow, who have been married since 1997. Iris’ big sister is Maude Apatow, Euphoria’s Leslie. Iris is dating Kate Hudson’s son Ryder Robinson and the couple have become Instagram official a few weeks ago.
Leslie Mann’s character Lauren is Cliff Beasts’ reoccurring Southern character. She appeared in all previous movies of the franchise and now is in the 6th one as well. She usually spends her time either working for her lines or fighting with her ex-husband Dustin, played by David Duchovny.
The actress is 50 years old and has been in a marriage with Judd Apatow since 1997. As already mentioned above, the couple has 2 daughters.
Maria Bakalova plays one of the hotels’ employees who constantly flirts with Dieter, Pedro Pascal’s character. The Bulgarian actress is 25 years old and is currently dating her boyfriend Peyton Gulley, an LA-based lawyer. The actress’s Instagram account does not have any photos of the couple together but Gulley‘s does.
Gillan’s character is Carol Cobb, an actress who was ostracized for playing a half-Israeli half-Palestinian woman, as she is Caucasian, in the film Jerusalem Rising. Carol had wanted to focus on Jerusalem Rising and had not shown up for Cliff Beasts 5 but now that her acting career has turned sour, she turned back for Cliff Beasts 6.
The Scottish actress is 34 years old and currently does not have a boyfriend, or is very secretive about it.
Pascal’s character is Dieter, a new actor added to the franchise, who is usually busy getting high, flirting with people, and joining TikTok dances. Although there have been many rumors about Pascal dating his co-stars, he is neither married nor has a girlfriend. The actor has a quite active Instagram account but he does not seem to share much about his dating life.

The last The Bubble cast member in our article is David Duchovny who plays Dustin in The Bubble Netflix movie. Dustin is the leading man in Cliff Beasts movies. He is known for his on-and-off relationship with his ex-wife Lauren (played by Leslie Mann).
Duchovny (61) was in a marriage with Tea Leoni from 1997 to 2014 and the couple broke up because of Duchovny’s sex addiction. Duchovny recently made the news when he was seen with a woman who is 30 years younger than him, Monique Pendleberry. They have been together since 2017.
