Marvel‘s first family has finally assembled (mixing a couple of different teams’ catchphrases there, but you get the gist). Marvel Studios has now officially announced the performers that will be playing The Fantastic Four in the 2025 film of the same name.

Reflecting the importance of this superhero team to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, there are some big names involved including Pedro Pascal (The Mandalorian, The Last of Us) as Reed Richards and Vanessa Kirby (Mission: Impossible – Fallout, The Crown) as Sue Storm. Slightly lesser known but no less interesting are Joseph Quinn (Stranger Things) as Johnny Storm and Ebon Moss-Bachrach (The Bear) as Ben Grimm.

We’ve got a ways to go before The Fantastic Four premieres on July 25, 2025 so let’s spend some of that time delving deeper into an unheralded member of the film’s cast. We’re speaking, of course, about Ebon Moss-Bachrach. Though he just won his first Primetime Emmy Award for his role as Richie Jerimovich in FX’s brilliant The Bear, this Massachusetts-born actor has been putting in award-worthy work long before that.

Of late it feels as though Ebon Moss-Bachrach has simply been in everything. From R-rated screwball comedies to biographical drama miniseries to even a galaxy far, far away, this character actor is bound to turn up where you least expect him. Before Ebon dons the orange rocks to become Marvel’s Thing, learn where else you’ve seen him previously. Because spoiler: you’ve almost certainly seen him somewhere previously.
