Trust, Brendan Fraser

FX



Love to see Brendan Fraser back in action.

He'll play Robotman/Cliff Steele in DC Universe's upcoming live-action series "Doom Patrol." Fraser will provide the voice of Robotman, Deadline reports, with Riley Shanahan playing the physical performance of Robotman in full body costume.

Fraser will also appear in flashback scenes as former race car driver Cliff Steele, who was in a terrible accident that left his body uninhabitable. Steele's brain was saved by Dr. Niles Caulder and lives on in the powerful robotic body.



DC Universe is DC's new digital subscription service -- where fans will get to watch James Wan's "Swamp Thing," along with "Titans," "Young Justice: Outsiders," "Harley Quinn," and more.

Here's the synopsis for "Doom Patrol":
"Doom Patrol" is a reimagining of one of DC's strangest group of outcasts: Robotman, Negative Man, Elasti-Woman and Crazy Jane. Led by the mysterious Dr. Niles Caulder, they're called into action by the ultimate hero for the digital age, Cyborg. Banding together these rejects find themselves on a mission that will take them to the weirdest and most unexpected corners of the DC Universe."

Diane Guerrero ("Orange is the New Black") was previously cast as Crazy Jane.

Jeremy Carver is writing the series, which he also executive produces with Geoff Johns, Greg Berlanti, and Berlanti Productions' Sarah Schechter.

"Doom Patrol" has a 13 episode straight-to-series order, for a 2019 premiere on DCUniverse.com, following "Titans."
