Kaleidoscope Cast: Meet the Netflix Heist Drama Actors


The order in which you watch the episodes of Netflix's most recent heist series, Kaleidoscope, is irrelevant, with the exception of the series finale. You can begin with practically any episode, and consequently, your viewing experience will differ from someone who began with a different episode.

The official plot summary for Kaleidoscope goes as follows: “Covering a span of 25 years, Kaleidoscope (formerly titled Jigsaw) is a brand-new anthology series that follows a band of professional thieves as they seek to open a supposedly impregnable vault for the highest payoff.


“Each episode unveils a piece of this intricate puzzle of corruption, greed, vengeance, scheming, loyalties, and betrayals, and is protected by the world's most powerful corporate security team and law enforcement. How did the thieving team plan it? Who escapes punishment? Who can be relied upon?”

Giancarlo Esposito is Leo Pap

Giancarlo Esposito, a television legend, portrays the head of the heist crew, Leo Pap. Netflix describes Leo as “whip-smart, focused, and driven, with the intellect of an engineer and a keen eye for detail.” Because he became a thief at an early age, he has struggled to avoid a life of crime, putting his family and freedom in danger.


Esposito has appeared in numerous television series, including Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul, The Boys, and The Mandalorian.

Jai Courtney plays Bob Goodwin.

Bob Goodwin, Judy Goodwin's husband, is the heist's safecracker who is equally adept at manipulating people's buttons as he is at breaking into safes. He is a “chest-puffing alpha male” who is “attractive and intelligent enough to be a menace to anyone who gets in his way when he's hunting.” Jai Courtney portrays Bob. You may recognize him from Suicide Squad, the Divergent trilogy, and Terminator: Genisys.

Rosaline Elbary is Judy Goodwin

Judy Goodwin, the wife of Bob Goodwin, is the heist's headstrong demolitions specialist. She may be “an eccentric spitfire with a sardonic edge,” but she is “smart and talented enough to avoid making mistakes.”

Rosaline Elbary, who has acted in the Egyptian television series Qabeel and the Hulu series Ramy, portrays Judy.

Paz Vega portrays Ava Mercer

Ava Mercer, portrayed by the Spanish actress Paz Vega, is an attorney and the crew's weapons expert. Mercer is “equally at home on a shooting range or in an art museum as she is in a courtroom” and is “a passionate spirit who will do anything to protect the few people she holds dear.”

Vega has had a lengthy career, but you may recognize her from Spanglish starring Adam Sandler, The OA on Netflix, and Rambo: First Blood.

Peter Mark Kendall is Stan Loomis

Stan Loomis, portrayed by Peter Mark Kendall, is a smuggler and devoted member of the heist crew. Stan has “a never-ending stream of words and the heart of a hopeless romantic.” Kendall was featured on Girls, The Americans, Chicago Med, The Good Fight, and Gotham prior to Kaleidoscope.

Jordan Mendoza plays RJ Acosta

RJ Acosta is a self-taught engineer, a skilled mechanic and automobile customizer, and an exceptional driver. Despite his lack of social skills, he is determined to prove his worth to Leo and establish his place in the heist. RJ is portrayed by Jordan Mendoza, who previously lent his voice to the Big Mouth spinoff Human Resources and starred on Ziwe.

Rufus Sewell is Roger Salas

Roger Salas is a former robber who has chosen to use his abilities to become a “leading security expert.” Roger is “a salesman with an incredible capacity to influence individuals for his own purposes.” He can be loyal, but ultimately he is solely concerned with his own goals and desires.

Roger is not only a formidable competitor of the heist team, but he also has a history with Leo. Rufus Sewell, who has also acted in The Holiday, The Man in the High Castle, and M. Night Shyamalan's Old, portrays Salas.

Tati Gabrielle in the role of Hannah Kim

Hannah Kim may work for Roger, but it does not imply that she is inherently loyal to him. Tati Gabrielle has a history of portraying complex characters, including Prudence Night in Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, Marienne Bellamy in You, and Jo Braddock in the film adaptation of Uncharted.

Tati Gabrielle's portrayal of Hannah is no different, as her true intentions and skill sets are revealed. Hannah is a “chameleon who oscillates between the worlds of high-stakes finance and low-level criminality” and will do anything to escape.

Soojeong Son plays Liz Kim

Liz Kim is Hannah's younger sister and an aspiring DJ/immersive dance captain with a “free spirit.” Her carefree demeanour occasionally clashes with Hannah's more serious outlook on work and life, despite the fact that she and Hannah normally get along well. Soojeong Son, who has also acted in Servant and Search Party, portrays Liz.

Hemky Madera is Carlos Sujo

Carlos is Roger's very devoted and “intense” head of security, prepared to fulfill any of his demands. You may recognize Henky Madera as Carlos from his roles in Weeds, Queen of the South, and Spider-Man: Homecoming.

Niousha Noor portrays Nazan Abassi

Nazan Abassi, the FBI agent tasked with taking down the robbery group, is portrayed by Niousha Noor. She excels at her career, but her driven personality makes it difficult for her to slow down, even when the job threatens to overwhelm her. Before appearing in Kaleidoscope, Niousha Noor appeared in The Night, Here and Now, and Stitchers on Freeform.
