Netflix's newest out-of-this-world hit Away boasts a cast that looks awfully familiar: It features Oscar winners, international stars, and a couple of fresh faces. The 10-episode show follows an international space team and their crazy-long journey from the moon to the planet Mars—so, like, your average run-of-the-mill space trip. Except it includes all the stuff going down with their friends and family on Earth, too. It's heavy on the drama, but with a plot as good as this one, it's hard not to binge. So while you're freaking out over whether we'll get a season two anytime soon, I took the liberty of figuring out why the Away cast looks so familiar and exactly where you've seen them before.
