A Series of Unfortunate Events might be a tale of woe and despair, but at least it has a fantastic cast! Season 2 sees the Baudelaire children - Violet, Klaus and Sunny - thrown into more perilous circumstances with less-than-ideal guardians, while the menacing Count Olaf continues his efforts to steal their fortune. With so many characters (and so many disguises) it can be difficult to keep track of who's-who, so here's a handy guide to the cast of A Series of Unfortunate Events season 2.
Malina Weissman as Violet Baudelaire - The eldest of the Baudelaire children, Violet is an inventor who always comes up with her best ideas when her hair is tied up with a ribbon.
Louis Hynes as Klaus Baudelaire - The middle Baudelaire child, Klaus loves reading books and has a knack for memorizing facts.
Presley Smith as Sunny Baudelaire - The youngest of the Baudelaire children, Sunny's hobbies include biting things and, well, biting things. She's very good at it.
Dylan Kingwell as Duncan Quagmire - One of the two surviving Quagmire triplets, Dylan is heir to the enormously valuable Quagmire sapphires, and is a keen journalist.
Avi Lake as Isadora Quagmire - The other surviving Quagmire triplet, Isadora is also heir to the family fortune, and enjoys writing poetry.
Count Olaf's Troupe
Neil Patrick Harris as Count Olaf - Recognizable (well, sometimes) by his single eyebrow and the tattoo of an eye on his ankle. A very bad man.
Usman Ally as the Hook-Handed Man - Count Olaf's right-hand man (pardon the phrasing). He has hooks instead of hands, but they're surprisingly versatile.
Jacqueline and Joyce Robbins as the White-Faced Women - Identical twins who often finish each other's sentences.

Matty Cardarople as the Henchperson of Indeterminate Gender - A henchperson of indeterminate gender.

Roger Bart as Vice-Principal Nero - The mean-spirited and egotistical man in charge of Prufrock Preparatory school. Nero loves playing the violin, though he is terrible at it, and has a nasty habit of repeating people's words in a mocking tone.
Lucy Punch as Esmé Squalor - The city's sixth most important financial advisor. Esmé is a wealthy and painfully fashionable woman who lives her life according to what The Daily Punctilio tells her is "in" and "out."

Ithamar Enriquez as Hector - A friendly handyman who lives in V.F.D. (the Village of Fowl Devotees), and is terrified of the Village Elders.

Nathan Fillion as Jacques Snicket - Lemony's brother. Jacques is an extremely dashing man and a very responsible taxi driver.
Sara Canning as Jacquelyn - Mr. Poe's secretary, who uses her job to keep tabs on the Baudelaires, and has a habit of hiding under her desk whenever she gets an important phone call.
Patrick Breen as Larry Your-Waiter - Whether he's working in a clown-themed seaside establishment, a fancy restaurant with all-salmon dishes, or a school cafeteria, Larry is always here to help.
