|Hair Color||Black, Brown|
|Voiced by||Brandon Hardesty (Cartman)|
|First Appearance||I Should Have Never Gone Ziplining|
These actors are hired to portray the boys for the show I Should Never Got on a Goddamn Boat (a spin-off of the highly successful I Should Have Never Gone Zip-Lining) -- though they are far older and attractive than the fourth graders they are portraying. They pretend to be stranded on a boat, where they fight off beavers, die and crap off the side of a boat. They are later rescued by a certain magical friend. Sure, they don't all look exactly like the real deal - or much like them at all - but hey, it sure makes for some great entertainment!

Behind the Scenes
Brandon Hardesty portrayed the live-action impersonation of Cartman in this episode. He posted the following on the website Something Awful about the experience:
- "My manager sent me out for this audition. Drove to South Park Studios in Culver City and auditioned, got the call the same day. We shot some of it over a month ago [before March 2012]. We all cracked up during the shoot. The scene where Kenny says "Fuck you, Cartman" made me laugh almost every time. It was very hard to keep a straight face."
- "Matt and Trey are as cool as you think they are and more. They loved filming it and were laughing throughout. When Matt first saw us in our costumes and introduced himself, he said, "This is so ridiculous. This is so fucking stupid. I love it.""
- "We shot it on Trey's Dad's boat. We essentially met the human incarnation of Randy Marsh. Really nice guy."
- "After a few weeks, we all got calls to do some re-shoots. Because of how last-minute they work, there were some changes to the story. Matt explained to us that they wrote the live-action segment before writing any of the episode."
- "If anything else can be said, I can tell you that Matt and Trey still genuinely love making this show, and they were both majorly excited about this segment. They wanted it to be a big surprise to their fans, so we, of course, couldn't Facebook or Tweet about it. At the end of the day, the other actors and I got a picture, in full costume, with Matt and Trey. I'm framing that shit ASAP."
- The actors had full character outfits, though in the final episode only certain aspects like Kenny's jacket and Cartman's hat actually appear. This is likely a jab at how dramatic re-enactments in these shows often use actors who look extremely different from their real counterparts.
