Kaley Cuoco is the new voice of Harley Quinn, and there’s a teaser video to prove it. Also check out the first look of Brendan Fraser as Robotman on Doom Patrol.
New York Comic Con has kickstarted with some exciting news coming from the DC Universe panel on the very first day. Right before the 'Titans' world premiere at Warner Bros, DC universe announced two animated shows, 'Doom Patrol' and 'Harley Quinn'. 'Doom Patrol's' Brendan Fraser and 'The Big Bang Theory's' Kaley Cuoco made a special appearance to share the exciting news and to reveal the first look of their shows.
Fraser took to the stage to share some interesting news from the sets of 'Doom Patrol'. Fraser stars in the series as the voice of Robotman and will also give voice to the character Cliff Steele in the flashback scenes. His character seems to closely mirror the comic book form, and that includes Robotman's iconic leather jacket. Apart from Fraser, Matt Bomer of 'White Collar' fame will also be starring in the series as the voice of Negative Man and he doubles up as Larry Trainor in flashback scenes. Bomer further dazzled fans with a special video greeting from the Atlanta-based set, exclusively for those in attendance at NYCC. 'Doom Patrol' will take place after the events that take place in the Titans.
While Bomer is giving Negative Man his voice, Matthew Zuk will provide the physical performance of the character on set in costume. Riley Shanahan is the actor providing the physical performance of Robotman in costume. Along with 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.
Warner Bros. Animation then unveiled a first look at the upcoming animated Harley Quinn series with a special video created specifically for NYCC.
It was revealed that Cuoco along with voicing Gotham's criminal Harley Quinn, is also the executive producer on the series through her Yes, Norman Productions along with Justin Halpern, Patrick Schumacker and Dean Lorey. Cuoco leads a strong voice cast which includes comedic talents such as Lake Bell (In a World…, Wet Hot American Summer series, Children's 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) and Chris Meloni (Happy!, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit).
While we can't wait to see the two series, 'Titans' is set to release soon and it debuts on October 12 on the DC Universe digital subscription service, with new episodes being unveiled each Friday.
