It was just a few days ago that, in a conversation, TitansTV’s Craig Byrne mentioned to a friend that Ryan Potter (Big Hero 6) would be a great choice for Beast Boy…. well, guess what: It’s happening.
Deadline is reporting that Potter has landed that last big role in the DC streaming service Titans series… and revealing that his skin and hair will be green! Here’s how the TV version of the character is described:
As a child, Potter’s Garfield “Gar” Logan contracted the lethal disease, Sakutia, while on an African expedition with his geneticist parents. Treated with an experimental drug, Gar survived but not without developing some bizarre side effects. Along with skin and hair turning permanently green, the wisecracking, fun-loving Beast Boy is able to reshape himself into any animal of any size he can imagine.
Ryan Potter joins Brenton Thwaites, Anna Diop, and Teagan Croft in this group of Titans; Lindsey Gort is Detective Amy Rohrbach, and Alan Ritchson and Minka Kelly will be appearing as Hawk and Dove. It is assumed that the show will premiere in 2018.
