Brendan Fraser to Play Robotman in 'Doom Patrol' Series

Brendan Fraser will play the role of Robotman/Cliff Steele in the upcoming DC Universe series Doom Patrol.

The show will be live-action, but will be providing voice-over for scenes as Robotman. He will appear as Cliff Steele in flashback scenes.

Riley Shanahan will provide the physical performance of Robotman, according to Deadline.

Doom Patrol is a reimagining of one of DC’s strangest group of outcasts: Robotman (Fraser), Negative Man, Elasti-Woman (April Bowlby) and Crazy Jane (Diane Guerrero),” the outlet reports. “Led by the mysterious Caulder, they’re called into action by the ultimate hero for the digital age, Cyborg (Joivan Wade). Banding together, these rejects find themselves on a mission that will take them to the weirdest and most unexpected corners of the DC universe.”

Greg Berlanti is one of the executive producers.

    Whoa! What happened to him? He was such a hunk?

  • Casey C

    he was very badly injured doing a lot of his stunts for the Mummy series, in a lot of pain, multiple surgeries some of which failed and have left him worse off, his wife left him and then demanded nearly a million a year in alimony, he was sexually assaulted and suffered severe depression for some time and then I believe a parent passed. he’s had a really tough decade and seems a very sweet man so try some compassion

    He looks much better now actually. Hopefully this series will get him even better. Berlanti projects keeps their cast in shape.

    it’s a also a really bad photo. no, he no longer looks like his George of the Jungle days, but this is a poor photo to use and he looks better than this and more recent photos show that

  • Jason Bowen

    Wow! He has really let himself go. With all his money how did he let that happen. Could see if he was some middle class random.
