The Titans will be adding to their ranks when Season 2 rolls around. A new cast listing for the DC Universe series teases the introduction of Deathstroke’s son, Jericho.
A casting call, found on the Rochester/Finger Lakes Film Commission Facebook page, is looking for a male actor to play a deaf character in the next season of Titans. The listing doesn’t mention a character by name, although, fans have been begun speculating that it could be for Joe Wilson, the son of Slade Wilson aka Deathstroke. You can check out the description below:
“LOOKING FOR DEAF ACTORS! “I’m the Casting Associate on season 2 of the DC superhero series TITANS, and we recently released the below breakdown. Because of the context of the role, we would really like to look for actors who are deaf or hard of hearing, and are fluent in ASL. If you know of any current or former students who might fit the below description, please send them my way, or have them send their contact/rep info to my email. Thanks!
ROLE: Male, 21-24, Mixed Latino or Mixed Asian. As a young boy, Max was a kind-hearted soul who never measured up to the expectations of his domineering military father. Bullied by his peers, he retreated even further inward. He’s a misfit who’s always longed for acceptance and love, but never found it, always suffering betrayal by those he dared to believe in most. As a result, he’s grown into a young man who now longs to inflict pain on all those who have caused him pain… 7/13 SERIES REGULAR… PLEASE ALSO SUBMIT ACTORS WHO ARE DEAF OR HARD OF HEARING, AND NOTE ANY ACTORS WHO ARE FLUENT IN ASL.”
In the comics, Jericho joined the team during The Judas Contract storyline. Given that Geoff Johns has confirmed that Deathstroke will find his way onto the series, it’s safe to assume we will be seeing him sooner rather than later.
