Bomer will provide the voice of Negative Man in the live-action series, and will appear in flashback sequences as the character of Larry Trainor. Negative Man will be seen in a full-body costume portrayed by Matthew Zuk, reports variety.com.
“Doom Patrol” is billed as an ensembler about DC’s strangest group of outcasts: Robotman (Brendan Fraser), Negative Man, Elasti-Woman (April Bowlby), and Crazy Jane (Diane Guerrero).
The series is targeting a 2019 premiere. Bomer’s casting was unveiled on Wednesday as part of the DC Universe presentation at the Comic Con here.
