Hot on the heels of Doom Patrol adding Abigail Shapiro to its cast as Dorothy Spinner, now comes word that Karen Obilom has joined the show.
Via Deadline, Games People Play’s Obilom has signed on to play a character called Roni Evers in Doom Patrol’s second season. The early word on the character has her pegged as a military veteran who begins a relationship with Cyborg after the pair meet at a PTSD support group.
By all accounts and purposes, Roni Evers sound like she may be a skewed version of the Ron Evers character from the pages of DC Comics. Ron was a childhood pal of Victor Stone’s whose own tragic story saw him become an alternative version of Cyborg who worked for the military.
Season Two of Doom Patrol will premiere on DC Universe and HBO Max at a to-be-confirmed date towards the end of the year.
