So, DC's streaming Titans series has already spawned a spinoff before actually debuting.  They're developing a Doom Patrol series.  I was reasonably disinterested until the recent new that apparently they are currently in negotiations with Kelsey Grammer to play the Chief.  That alone, if it comes to pass, has may vaguely intrigued.

Me, too. He was surprisingly good as the Beast, I thought. He's a comedic actor that could have easily played the role mockingly, but he played it completely straight.

I get the feeling that any Doom Patrol adaptation that comes out now will use the psychopathic version of the Chief that engineered the accidents that resulted in the team members getting powers.

Clicking on the link, it sounded pretty good--until the part where they mention "in the aftermath of Titans" and "Cyborg calls in...."  It sounds like a SEQUEL to a show I would have preferred!  Just like BLACK LIGHTNING deals with a middle-aged principal and father of two super-powered daughters, but I would have preferred the original premise of an Olympic athlete coming back to teach at his old school controlled by drug dealers--same thing here.

Give us the original premise, not some TV people's idea of turning the premise on its head.

Hm. Well, anything that gives April Bowlby more work can't be all bad!

I use any mention of Doom Patrol as an excuse to repeat my love for
Nudge and Grunt.

Bruno Bichir looks nothing like Niles Caulder.  And unless Dwain Murphy is bandaged up 100% of the time...

Timothy Dalton has been cast in the role of The Chief/Niles Caulder. Not a bad choice IMO, certainly looks the part.
