Doom Patrol News: Timothy Dalton is The Chief

The Chief of the DC Universe Doom Patrol series has been found.

Timothy Dalton of James Bond, Penny Dreadful, and Doctor Who fame is playing The Chief in the live-action DC Comics adaptation that is due to come to DC Universe in 2019.

Bruno Bichir was announced as playing the role for his first appearance in Titans; we are curious if those scenes will be reshot, or if we will pretend that’s just a different universe, even though April Bowlby is Rita Farr in both versions. For a time, Kelsey Grammer (Frasier, X-Men: The Last Stand) was rumored as being in the running for the Chief role.

THR broke the news this afternoon. Here’s how they describe his character:

A pioneer in medical science, searching the world over for those on the edge of death in need of a miracle. Brilliant but controversial, Dr. Caulder will stop at nothing to help those he believes are in need, including his collection of strange heroes known as the Doom Patrol.
