TITANS Live-Action TV Series Adds The Leader Of The Doom Patrol To The Cast

The cast of Titans continues to grow as DC has now found an actor to take on the role of The Chief, the leader of The Doom Patrol. Hit the jump for everything we know about this addition to the series.

We recently learned that The Doom Patrol will show up in the upcoming Titans TV series and now Deadline reports that Bruno Bichir has joined a cast which also includes the likes of Brenton Thwaites, Anna Diop, and Teagan Croft. He'll play Dr. Niles Caulder/The Chief, the leader of The Doom Patrol.

He's described as, "a pioneer in medical science, searching the world over for those on the edge of death in need of a miracle. Brilliant, but controversial, 
Dr. Caulder will stop at nothing to help those he believes are in need, including his collection of strange heroes known as The Doom Patrol."

Titans is set to premiere later this year but with a similar aesthetic to the DC TV shows on The CW, it remains to be seen just how close to the source material The Doom Patrol will look. Bichir is best known for starring in Che and Absentia and he'll soon be seen opposite Benicio del Toro in Soldado
