DOOM PATROL Adds THE MUMMY Actor Brendan Fraser As Cliff Steele, A.K.A. Robotman

The live-action DC Universe Doom Patrol series has added another member to its team of outcast superheroes in the form of Robotman, who will be played by none other than The Mummy actor Brendan Fraser!..

It's been a while since we've seen Brendan Fraser on the big screen, but The Mummy actor's TV career is set to continue on DC Universe's live-action Doom Patrol series as Robotman.

According to Deadline, Fraser will actually provide the voice for the metal man, who will be physically portrayed by Riley Shanahan. However, Fraser will appear as the character's human alter-ego Cliff Steele in flashbacks.

Sticking close to the comics, Steele is a former race driver who's involved in a horrific accident. Though his body is broken beyond repair, his brain is then transferred to
a powerful robot host by the mysterious Dr. Caulder. 

The outcast heroes that make up the Doom Patrol will be introduced in the fifth episode of Titans, which was written by Geoff Johns. The show is set to premiere on the DC Universe streaming service next year.
