From there Godzilla begins spreading chaos and begins breeding new offspring. The main plot of Godzilla involves the star character played by Matthew Broderick, named Dr. Niko Tatopoulos. An American scientist and activist against the horrors of nuclear power, Dr. Tatopoulos is quickly recruited to assist the military forces with his knowledge about radiation effects on mutation of species on our planet. Godzilla has supporting cast that include Maria Pitillo, Hank Azaria, Kevin Dunn and Jean Reno. Maria Pitillo is the principal co-star, playing Audrey Timmonds. She is a media journalist who uncovers a secret tape about Godzilla but also has a history with Dr. Tatopoulos from year past.
