According to a new report from Deadline, Flula Borg has joined the cast of James Gunn’s upcoming The Suicide Squad. Who Borg is playing is being kept under wraps. The only thing that is known is that he will be playing the love interest of one of the characters.
Borg became a YouTube celebrity thanks to his comedy videos. He is also a DJ, and has appeared in some movies such as Pitch Perfect 2, and done voice work in movies such as Ralph Breaks the Internet, Ferdinand, and the upcoming Trolls World Tour.
With a fairly large cast, exactly who Borg could be the love interest of is anyone’s guess. We’ll just have to wait and see what they announce.
Production on The Suicide Squad set to take place in Atlanta, Georgia, and it’s expected to kick-off in September.
Even with production so close to commencing, we still don’t have a solid lock on the cast. Currently, Joel Kinnaman looks to be returning as Flagg, and word is that Viola Davis will also reprise her role as Amanda Waller.
As to new characters, David Dastmalchian is confirmed as Polka-Dot Man, Daniela Melchior is rumored for a genderswapped Ratcatcher, and we still have no clear indication who Idris Elba is playing. A new rumor, however, points to his character having a daughter, so that narrows down the field a bit. And the final new character rumor has Benicio del Toro possibly up for the role of the film’s villain.
The Suicide Squad is due to hit theaters on Aug. 6, 2021.
