Former James Bond star Timothy Dalton has joined DC Universe’s Doom Patrol.
THR reports that Dalton has been cast as Dr Niles “The Chief” Calder.
Calder is described as a pioneer in medical science, searching the world over for those on the edge of death in need of a miracle. Brilliant but controversial, Dr. Caulder will stop at nothing to help those he believes are in need, including his collection of strange heroes known as the Doom Patrol.
Dalton joins Brendan Fraser as Cliff Steel/ (voice of Robotman), April Bowlby as Elasti-Woman, Diane Guerrero as Crazy Jane, Riley Shanahan as Robotman (physical peformance), Dwain Murphy as Negative Man, Alan Tudyk as Mr. Nobody and Jovian Wade as Cyborg.
Jeremy Carver (Supernatural) will pen the series. Greg Berlanti will exec produce the series alongside Geoff Johns.
Doom Patrol originally written and drawn by Arnold Drake, Bob Haney and Bruno Premiani will appear on the fifth episode of DC Universe’s live-action series Titans.
The show is described as a reimagining of one of DC’s most beloved group of outcast superheroes: Robotman, Negative Man, Elasti-Woman and Crazy Jane and led by modern-day mad scientist Dr. Niles Caulder (The Chief). The Doom Patrol’s members each suffered accidents that gave them superhuman abilities — but also left them scarred and disfigured. Traumatized and downtrodden, the team found purpose through The Chief, who brought them together to investigate the weirdest phenomena in existence — and to protect Earth from what they find. Part support group, part superhero team, the Doom Patrol is a band of super-powered freaks who fight for a world that wants nothing to do with them. The drama picks up after the events of Titans — which is also in the works at DC Universe and produced by Berlanti — Doom Patrol will find the reluctant heroes in a place they never expected to be, called to action by Cyborg, who comes to them with a mission hard to refuse, but with a warning that is hard to ignore: their lives will never, ever be the same.
