Our favorite mummy hunter is back and has been officially cast in the upcoming DC Universe series Doom Patrol.
According to Deadline, Brendan Fraser is going to be leading the show as the voice of Robotman, a former race-car driver named Cliff Steele who suffered a brutal accident that left his body destroyed. Steele’s brain was then transferred to a robotic body by a doctor (of course), and became Robotman. Though Riley Shanahan has been cast to physically portray the character, Fraser will be providing “the voiceover for Robotman and will appear in flashback scenes as Cliff Steele”.
