I always imagined the Chief's voice sounding like Doctor Quest's.  Voice Actor Don Messic.  I don't know if if have heard Dalton speaking with an American Accent.  I feel it is a good choice.

To be fair, Benton Quest and Niles Caulder resemble each other quite a bit, save for a chair. As for being voiced by Don Messick... absolutely. But then, Mr. Messick voiced dozens and dozens of characters, whether they were mad scientists or not. He, Daws Butler, June Foray, and Mel Brooks are probably on the Mount Rushmore of voice actors.

Timothy Dalton's acting always seems pretty intense to me... maybe a touch too intense. Then again, the Chief must be a tremendously strong character to herd Cliff and Larry, and even Rita on occasion. (One assumes Beast Boy isn't in this... Teen Titans and rights and all.)

I think a British treatment of the Chief would not work so well. But I think a female treatment would work even less. Not that anyone specifically suggested it, but it comes up sooner or later... :)

Oh, and John Y. - Timothy Dalton did a pretty devastating American accent in "The Rocketeer." Good flick.

Isn't this the third Chief casting announcement we've heard so far?  Is this final?

Matt Bomer is the voice of Negative Man, as well as playing Larry Trainor in flashbacks. Another actor will be under the bandages.


There are so many casting changes between TITANS and DOOM PATROL that I can't figure out if it's supposed to be a spin-off or not.

=======================================================

He's far from intense in "Hot Fuzz". I'd go so far as to say that in both "Hot Fuzz" and "The Rocketeer" he was given a chance to show another side to what the audience expected of him.

I like the wonky vibe.  But I have no confidence in the DCU folks anymore after Titans.  Also, I still don't know why Cyborg is there.

Stargirl's recent casting news actually has me really tempted, for the first time, to sign up for DCU.  If that continues to look good, and I sign up for it, I'll probably give Doom Patrol a look.

Just guessing, but they may have felt they needed a Titan and with Beast Boy over in Titans, Cyborg inexplicably left out there, and Ray Fisher big on the big screen, they may have felt the best way to go, Titan-wise, was for Cyborg. 

Robotman's head could have used some puppetry.

You're probably right, vis a vis Cyborg, but unlike Beast Boy, there seems to be an inordinate amount of overlap between him and Robotman as characters.

I didn't say it was a good idea, Steve. :-)

So, Cyborg's in every team--EXCEPT the Titans!?

That promo looked awful.

Why is Cyborg there? Who is the girl in the front?
