Carpoolers is the story of four very different men- Aubrey, the (usually) stressed family man, Laird, the manliest of the group who lost almost everything in a divorce, Gracen, the uptight mediator who is commonly the calm one of the group, and Dougie, a young member of the carpool whose marriage is often mocked by the others. At the beginning, the four carpool together and (other than Laird and Gracen) usually have no other contact. But in "The Recital," the four realize they are friends, and become closer.


* Fred Goss - Gracen Brooker: A mediator who is married and whose adult son, Marmaduke usually spends his entire day at home in his briefs. He and Laird Holcomb are friends as well as neighbors.
* Jerry O'Connell - Laird Holcomb: A recently divorced dentist whose ex-wife has taken almost everything he owned (except his absercisor and otherwise empty house); he sleeps with as many women as he can.
* Jerry Minor - Aubrey Williber: A man who looks after his rambunctious seven kids in addition to working while his lazy wife, who is never seen, but only depicted as a pair of feet, sits in her recliner. His signature catch phrase is "Gentlemen ... let's carpool", usually uttered immediately prior to carpooling.
* Tim Peper - Dougie: As the new carpooler, he tries to gain acceptance into the group of men while frequently committing major carpooling faux pas. He is a newlywed who likes to tell the others about the joy of marriage and love.
* Faith Ford - Leila Brooker: Gracen's sensible wife and successful real estate "flipper".
* T. J. Miller - Marmaduke Brooker: The emotionally stunted, hyper-articulate, hulking adult son of the Bookers (who towers over his parents by over a foot).
* Allison Munn - Cindy: Dougie's young, dewy wife; they have a saccharine sweet relationship. When she sends Dougie off to work with his lunch she tells him that she "is in every bite".
