March Madness may be over, but that doesn't mean we have to say goodbye to basketball just yet. Disney+'s latest hit series, Big Shot, brings a brand new team into the spotlight as the Westbrook Sirens attempt to finally win some games and hopefully take home a big title. Leading them along the way is brand new coach Marvyn who, after an incident during a D1 NCAA Men's Basketball game, is forced to start a new job in Westbrook in the hopes of improving his image. So who are the members of our new favorite team? And where might you recognize the actors that bring them to life?
Here are the cast and characters of Big Shot.
John Stamos as Marvyn Korn
Marvyn is the team's no nonsense coach who ends up having to go from a Division 1 team to Westbrook after an outburst against a referee during a game. While he has a lot of experience with success, he has to start from scratch when it comes to the Sirens.
John Stamos is mostly known for his role as Uncle Jesse in Full House. He has also appeared in ER, Grandfathered, and You.
Jessalyn Gilsig as Holly Barrett
Holly is the Sirens' assistant coach who helps Marvyn find his way around his new team. While she's more open than the other teachers at the school with Marvyn joining the faculty, she is not afraid to put him in his place when he crosses the line or is in over his head.
Jessalyn is well known for her role as Terri Schuester on the hit FOX TV series Glee.
Sophia Mitri Schloss as Emma Korn

Cricket Wampler as Samantha 'Giggles' Finkman
Giggles is one of the members of the team that is hesitant about Marvyn joining in as their coach, even making jokes about him after their first practice.

Cricket previously appeared in About a Boy as Hannah Bickleman.
Yvette Nicole Brown as Sherilyn Thomas
