Yaron (David Wain) is the visiting Israeli soccer counselor who exudes cool. He has the exotic accent, the great hair, and the athletic abilities that he shows off with the diablo. Plus, he can play a mean shofar. He even makes the short shorts look good. It’s no surprise that girls like Donna can’t resist him.
Beth (Janeane Garofalo) is the head camp counselor at Camp Firewood. It’s her job to make sure things run smoothly but unfortunately things aren’t going her way. Not only does she have to deal with saving the camp from toxic waste and from a falling space station headed their way, but she also has to cope with the loss of her boyfriend, Mitch, who gets turned into a can of mixed vegetables.
Lindsay (Elizabeth Banks) is a journalist for Rock & Roll World magazine who goes undercover at Camp Firewood to find out what teenagers are up to. She’s able to pull off looking like a 16-year-old teen just by pulling her hair to the side. While at the camp, she develops a relationship with Andy, despite the fact that he’s dating Katie. She also has a particular love for barbecue sauce.
Mitch (H. Jon Benjamin) is the director at Camp Tigerwood whose favorite afternoon snack is weirdly a can of mixed vegetables. He meets an unfortunate end after he falls into a toxic waste pit discovered at the camp. Fortunately this happens while he’s carrying his snack and the toxic sludge turns him into a sentient vegetable can, who later becomes an influential part of Gene’s life.
In Wet Hot American Summer, Coop (Michael Showalter) is the hopeless romantic and quintessential nice guy. Unfortunately this means that he doesn’t get a lot of interest from the girls. His first girlfriend, Donna, ends up leaving him for another guy. Then Katie, the girl he develops a crush on, decides she’d rather be with Andy even though he’s a jerk. Hopefully he’ll find someone who appreciates him just the way he is before camp is over.
