Former James Bond star Timothy Dalton is set to lead the cast of DC Universe’s upcoming live-action series Doom Patrol, according to Deadline.
Dalton will play the Doom Patrol’s leader, Dr. Niles 'The Chief' Caulder, in the series from Greg Berlanti and Warner Bros TV.
Doom Patrol is a reimagining of one of DC’s strangest group of outcasts: Robotman (Brendan Fraser), Negative Man, Elasti-Woman (April Bowlby) and Crazy Jane (Diane Guerrero). Led by the mysterious Caulder (Dalton), they’re called into action by the ultimate hero for the digital age, Cyborg (Joivan Wade). Banding together, these rejects find themselves on a mission that will take them to the weirdest and most unexpected corners of the DC universe.
Dalton’s Dr. Caulder is 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.
