YouTube star Chella Man has been cast as Jericho for DC Universe's Titans. This follows the previous casting of Esai Morales as Deathstroke, Jericho's father in comic books.
"Son of the infamous DC villain Deathstroke (played by Esai Morales), Joseph Wilson is the Titan known as Jericho," reads DC's description. "Mute after his father failed to rescue him from having his vocal cords severed by assassins, Jericho has the unique ability to possess anyone just by making eye contact. This gentle natured yet proud hero has proven himself a formidable Titan."
Man came to prominence with his YouTube channel profiling his gender transition and life as being "deaf, Genderqueer, Chinese, and Jewish." Man was signed to IMG as a model, however Titans would be his first major acting role.
DC Universe is also reportedly casting for Ravager, the sibling of Jericho.
DC Universe has not dated the debut of Titans' second season.
