Former James Bond actor Timothy Dalton has joined the cast of Doom Patrol, according to Deadline. Dalton will play the Doom Patrol’s leader, Dr. Niles “The Chief” Caulder.

In Doom Patrol, Dalton’s Dr. Caulder is 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.

Doom Patrol is currently shooting and will be released exclusively on DC Universe sometime in 2019.
