The character has been given a welcome adventurous makeover for the new series. Ma Beagle and the Beagle Boys are played by Margo Martindale and Eric Bauza respectively. They’re back to give Scrooge a hard time and get in the way of his globetrotting adventures. Flintheart Golmgold (Keith Ferguson) is returning as Scrooge’s billionaire peers, and he’s even more Scottish than before. Silicon Valley star Josh Brener voices Mark Beaks. He’s a brand new character — a “new money” peer of Uncle Scrooge who accumulated his wealth in the tech sector. As previously announced, Scottish star David Tennant, best known for his portrayal of the Tenth Doctor in Doctor Who voices Scrooge McDuck.
