Shamus McKenzie (Dean Kirkright)
Shamus is your archetypal Aussie jock. He loves his footy and cricket and is rarely seen without a drink in his hand. The difference between his brain and his penis is that he uses one to do his thinking while the other is the organ in his skull.
Shamus used to be something of a ladies' man before he got involved with Kate and spends the entire series trying unsuccessfully to dump her so he can return to his old ways.
Josh Truman (Cameron B Patterson)
If South Park's Eric Cartman were 28 and had a law degree, Josh is
precisely what he would look like. His vast intelligence is matched
only by the contempt he has for everyone who is not him, especially
anyone politically left-wing, females, ethnic minorities, Collingwood
supporters, Queenslanders (well, the list just goes on).
Josh is obsessed with TV and movies and will drop pop-culture
references into every conversation he has. He is also something of a
dateless wonder, being incapable of talking to a girl without saying
the wrong thing.
Brett Peters (Michele-Antonio Mattiuzzi)
A gay man trapped in a straight man's body (or vice versa, depending
on your point of view) Brett is the biggest man's man you'll ever
Don't let the gay thing fool you; Brett is not some clichéd fashionista
or cultural attaché. Rather, he's physically imposing, fires off insults

with an affable disdain.
Kate Schultz (Madeline Kelly)
Blonde, ditzy and smoking hot, Kate is a walking, talking Barbie doll
stereotype. She is constantly demanding of Shamus' time and
affection and is always on the look-out for how to improve him.
Kate apparently has no idea that Shamus is constantly trying to
break up with her and whenever he is about to, she has a knack for
instinctively saying something sexy which causes him to change his
Jane Alexander (Anna McGahan)
Left-wing, save-the-whales, Arts student Jane is Josh's nemesis. She's
opinionated, constantly uptight and always bemoaning the boorish
antics of the boys. So out of place is Jane that it would be fair
enough to say the only reason she hangs around is because she is
Kate's best friend.
Although not a driver of much of the comedy in the series, Jane plays
a critical role as the voice of the audience's disapproval of the boys
and their behaviour.
Mr De Silva (Sukh Raj Deepak)
Sri Lankan immigrant Mr De Silva is the boys' landlord, seemingly the
innocent bystander as he merely goes about trying to collect the rent
from his property.
Unfortunately, Mr De Silva's regular attempts to attend the house to
check everything is ok usually occurs at the most inconvenient or
