Timothy Dalton has been cast as Dr. Niles "The Chief" Caulder for DC Universe's Doom Patrol.
"Genius. Visionary. Accomplished. Eccentric. Maybe a little insane," reads DC Universe's description of the role. "Dr. Niles Caulder, known more informally as 'the Chief,' is the wheelchair-bound scientist who traditionally leads the quirky band of heroes called the Doom Patrol. Caulder is, in a word, brilliant."
Dalton is best known for playing James Bond in two 1980s movies. Dalton also appeared in the movie adaptations of Flash Gordon and The Rocketeer.
Kelsey Grammer was previously reported to be in talks for this same role.
Doom Patrol is anticipated to debut in 2019 on the DC Universe streaming service.
