About two weeks ago, Geoff Johns announced on Twitter that the Doom Patrol was going to be making their way to the small screen via DC’s new digital platform service series, Titans. With the recent casting of Bruno Bichir as Dr. Niles Caulder, also known as the Chief, it looks like another member of the Doom Patrol has been officially cast in Elasti-Girl.April Bowlby Elasti-Girl

Drop Dead Diva star April Bowlby has been cast as Rita Farr. In the comics, Farr is an actress that is about to reach her stardom, but then gets exposed to a toxic gas that affects her cells that allows her body to expand or shrink. Feeling different and not in her comfort zone, Farr finds a home as Elasti-Girl with the Doom Patrol, a team of super-powered misfits who don’t really know their identities in the society.

Bowlby will be making her first appearance on Titans in episode five, which Johns wrote, called “The Doom Patrol”. She also has an option to potentially return later on in the season. With the Chief and Elasti-Girl being cast, we could see some more new castings in the coming days for other Doom Patrol members like Negative Man and Robotman.

We won’t know if the Doom Patrol are going to be an experienced group or not when they run into the Titans, but it will be interesting to see where this story will go between the two teams!
