With Titans standing out as one of the most hotly anticipated new shows of 2018, the series has now moved to add Bruno Bichir to its ranks.
As announced by Warner Brothers and DC Entertainment, the Absentia actor will be playing Dr Niles Caulder, aka the Chief.
Earlier this month, we reported that the oddball hero team known as the Doom Patrol would be a part of Titans, and the Chief is the leader of this ragtag group. The character description for Doc Caulder has him pegged as “a pioneer in medical science who is 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.”
Bichir joins quite the impressive ensemble, with Brenton Thwaites playing Dick Grayson, Anna Diop as Starfire, Teagan Croft as Raven, Ryan Potter as Beast Boy, Alan Ritchson and Minka Kelly as the Hawk and Dove duo, and Lindsey Gort as Police Detective Amy Rohrbach.
The official blurb on this live-action Teen Titans effort reads:
In the action-packed series, Dick Grayson emerges from the shadows to become the leader of a fearless band of new heroes, including Starfire, Raven and many others. Fans can expect Titans to be a dramatic, live-action adventure series that will explore and celebrate one of the most popular comic book teams ever.
Titans will debut later this year on Warner Brothers’ impending DC streaming service.
