We now have five of the six roles filled for the live action TV adaptation of TITANS. That Hashtag Show was the first one to break the news that the series would feature the two additional characters, as at first it was only thought to include Beast Boy, Raven, Starfire and Dick Greyson.
The two characters will be filled by prominent actors. According to Deadline, Friday Night Lights’ Minka Kelly has been awarded the role of Dove, while former TMNT and Smallville actor Alan Ritchson will play Hawk. The only member of the crew who has not been cast is Beast Boy. The other roles include Dick Grayson (Brenton Thwaites), Starfire (Anna Diop), and Raven (Teagan Croft). Ritchson is no stranger to comic and superhero based shows either. He played Aquaman in Smallville and was the voice of Raphael in TMNT.
TITANS is not going to debut until 2018, and will serve as one of the leading shows on DC’s direct to consumer digital service they will introduce at the same time. No further details are available at this time, and no actors have been presented as front runners for Beast Boy yet.
