Doom Patrol and Harley Quinn Casting News from WB and DC Universe at NYCC

By DRWHO42
Warner Bros. and DC UNIVERSE starting off New York Comic Con with a bang. During the screening event for Titans Brendan Fraser (Crash, The Mummy, Gods and Monsters) from the upcoming Doom Patrol and The Big Bang Theory’s Kaley Cuoco made special appearances and revealed exciting casting news and unveiled a first look at Warner Bros. Animation’s upcoming series Harley Quinn.

Brendan Fraser, who stars in Doom Patrol as the voice of Robotman and he will also portray Cliff Steele in flashback scenes, shared updates directly from the set of the series in Atlanta. Fraser revealed the addition of Matt Bomer (White Collar, American Horror Story, The Normal Heart) to the cast and will provide the voiceover performance for the character of Negative Man, and he will also appear as Larry Trainor in flashback scenes. Matthew Zuk has been cast in the role of Negative Man, and he will provide the physical performance of the character on set in costume.

In addition to Fraser and Bomer, Doom Patrol stars Joivan Wade as Victor Stone/Cyborg, Timothy Dalton as Niles Caulder/The Chief, April Bowlby as Elasti-Woman, Diane Guerrero as Crazy Jane and Alan Tudyk as Mr. Nobody.

As an added bonus Bomer surprised fans with a special video greeting from the Atlanta-based set, exclusively for those in attendance at the NYCC Titans screening event.

Warner Bros. Animation then unveiled a first look at the upcoming animated Harley Quinn series with a special video created specifically for NYCC.

Here is the first-look video:

Immediately following the video, the new voice of Gotham’s criminal Queenpin Harley Quinn was revealed, as The Big Bang Theory’s Kaley Cuoco took the stage. Cuoco leads a fantastic voice cast which include notable comedic talents such as Lake Bell (In a World…, Wet Hot American Summer series, Childrens Hospital), Alan Tudyk (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story), Ron Funches (Powerless), JB Smoove (Curb Your Enthusiasm), Jason Alexander (Seinfeld), Wanda Sykes (Black-ish), Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad), Natalie Morales (Bojack Horseman), Jim Rash (Mike Tyson Mysteries), Diedrich Bader (Veep), Tony Hale (Arrested Development, Veep), Chris Meloni (Happy!, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit).

In addition to voicing the role of Harley Quinn, Cuoco is also an executive producer on the series through her Yes, Norman Productions, serving alongside Justin Halpern, Patrick Schumacker and Dean Lorey.

Cuoco, in my opinion is a perfect choice to take on the role of Harley Quinn and I am excited to add both series to my list when they air.
