Emma Mackey has joined the ever-expanding cast of Greta Gerwig’s upcoming comedy Barbie. The Sex Education star’s casting has sent the internet on a ride with the fans noting how Mackey will be joining Margot Robbie, who will star in the titular role and who also shares a striking resemblance with the former. The movie has so far cast many A-listers in its roster. Recently, news of Will Ferrell joining the cast made waves online. However, that doesn’t even begin to cover the amount of star power the upcoming Gerwig feature exudes. So far, the main cast of Barbie includes names like Ryan Gosling, Simu Liu, Kate McKinnon, America Ferrera, and Alexander Shipp.

According to recent reports, Ferrell will be playing the role of the CEO of a company. Apart from Ferrell and Robbie’s parts, there have been no official announcements regarding other roles. Greta Gerwig is going to helm the feature, with her partner and director-writer Noah Baumbach co-writing the screenplay. There’s a huge amount of excitement for the film, especially because of the star cast and the Gerwig-Baumbach duo. However, the aspect that has by far triggered the most amount of online chatter is Emma Mackey joining the cast of Barbie. Below is a taste of just how nuts fans have gone following the news.

Another user demanded Samara Weaving join the cast as well, so the trilogy of the look-alike actresses is complete. They write, “All #Barbie needs is Samara Weaving to complete the trilogy with Emma Mackey and Margot Robbie.”

Emma and Margot’s facial similarity is funny because Twitter is abuzz with users rising to the occasion and capitalizing on the Spider-Man finger-pointing memes. There are a plethora of memes celebrating the casting of these two actresses. It’s a momentous occasion for many since for quite some time, fans have wanted them to star alongside each other.
