Doom Patrol Casts Alan Tudyk as Mr. Nobody!
TV veteran actor Alan Tudyk has officially signed on to join the upcoming DC Universe live-action series Doom Patrol as the supervillain Mr. Nobody, according to Deadline. Doom Patrol is a re-imagining of one of DC’s most beloved group of outcast superheroes who's members each suffered horrible 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. Tudyk joins a cast that includes Kelsey Grammer as Dr. Niles Caulder, Brendan Fraser as Robotman, , April Bowlby as Elasti-Woman, Diane Guerrero as Crazy Jane, and Dwain Murphy as Negative Man while Bruno Bichir will play a younger Dr. Niles Caulder in Titans.
Part support group, part Super Hero team, the Doom Patrol is a band of super-powered freaks who fight for a world that wants nothing to do with them. Picking up after the events of Titans, Doom Patrol will find these reluctant heroes in a place they never expected to be, called to action by none other than Cyborg, who comes to them with a mission hard to refuse, but with warning that is hard to ignore: their lives will never, ever be the same. The Doom Patrol characters will appear in the fifth episode of Berlanti’s DC Universe live-action drama Titans, with Brendan Fraser, Bruno Bichir, April Bowlby, Jack Michaels, and Dwain Murphy starring. The direct-to-series order of 13 episodes will be written by Supernatural‘s Jeremy Carver and will be executive produced by Berlanti, Geoff Johns, Jeremy Carver, and Sarah Schechter. Tudyk is well-known for his work on the cult classic series Firefly and Amazon’s adaptation of the fan-favorite comic character The Tick, as well as numerous film roles over the years in such hits as Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story, Tucker & Dale vs. Evil, Wreck-It Ralph, Frozen and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. He can be heard in the highly-anticipated sequel to the 2012 Disney hit, Ralph Breaks the Internet.
