Brendan Frazer joins DC’s Doom Patrol series as Robotman

August 22nd, 2018 by Marc Comments

We love this news! Brendan Frazer – an absolutely lovely guy who we have the honour of meeting in 2012 – is set for a big role in the upcoming DC series Doom Patrol.

Yes, Frazer has been cast as Robotman in the show set to air on the DC Universe subscription service and will see Frazer voice the character who will be portrayed by actor Riley Shanahan, however, Frazer will play Cliff Steele, the man who becomes Robotman in flashbacks in the show.

Cliff used to be a race car driver and all-around daredevil until his body was destroyed in a tragic accident. The mysterious Dr. Niles Caulder then transplanted his brain into a robotic body, and now Cliff lives again as Robotman.

Frazer (and Shanahan) join April Bowlby as Elasti-Woman, Diane Guerrero as Crazy Jane, and The First Joivan Wade as Cyborg.

This is pretty exciting news for DC fans… or maybe you guys don’t agree. Let us know.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
