Alan Tudyk signs on to Doom Patrol as Mr. Nobody

TV veteran actor Alan Tudyk has officially signed on to join the upcoming DC Universe live-action series Doom Patrol as the supervillain Mr. Nobody, according to Deadline.

Doom Patrol is a re-imagining of one of DC’s most beloved group of outcast Super Heroes: Robotman, Negative Man, Elasti-Girl, and Crazy Jane, led by modern-day mad scientist Dr. Niles Caulder (The Chief). The Doom Patrol’s members each suffered horrible accidents that gave them superhuman abilities – but also left them scarred and disfigured. Traumatized and downtrodden, the team found purpose through The Chief, who brought them together to investigate the weirdest phenomena in existence — and to protect Earth from what they find.
