James Gunn’s cast for The Suicide Squad continues to expand – this time with an unexpected YouTube superstar turned actor.
Via Deadline, Flula Borg has been added to The Suicide Squad. However, his role is currently under wraps. The only detail in the report is that Borg is “playing a love interest to one of the characters.”
For many years, Borg took part in live performances in his home country of Germany and produced content for his YouTube channel. But he’s also appeared in several Hollywood movies, including Pitch Perfect 2 and Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip. Additionally, he guest starred on The Good Place, Counterpart, and Curb Your Enthusiasm. Borg will also provide the voice of Dickory in Dreamworks’ Trolls World Tour; which is coming to theaters in April 2020.
