The Maitre D' (meaning head waiter) is portrayed by Cory English in the 2019 Cats movie.

Role

When Bustopher Jones, who is played by James Corden, starts looking for something to eat I'm the one to say, 'Ohhh try this bin. Here's this.' So I do a lot of stuff with James Corden.
— Cory English[1]

The Maitre D' is a meek cat that follows Bustopher Jones around until the latter is kidnapped by Macavity. When Macavity's agents crash the "Jellicle Ball", he sticks close to Old Deuteronomy, scared but still trying to protect the Jellicle leader.

Originally, the Maitre D' was just meant to be a small cameo in the Bustopher Jones sequence. His role was extended after a week of rehearsals such that he appears throughout the film.

Appearance

Maitre D' is a tuxedo cat.
