DC Universe’s upcoming Harley Quinn animated series has found its Joker and it’s none other than fan-favourite actor Alan Tudyk. He joins an impressive voice cast that includes Kaley Cuoco, in the title role, Jason Alexander, Wanda Sykes and Giancarlo Esposito.
In a new interview, Diedrich Bader, who voices Batman, revealed that Alan Tudyk will, in fact, be playing the Clown Prince of Crime, taking over from Mark Hamill.
Speaking to Discussing Film, he described Tudyk as hilarious. “I did a [recording] session with him a while ago, and he’s very funny as Joker.”
Bader went on to describe the show as a more adult version of the DC universe. “It’s funny, there’s a lot of dirty language in it! I’m not going to be watching it with my kids, at this juncture — maybe in a couple of years, when they’re a little bit older. It’s definitely an Adult Swim-esque take on it. So, it’s darker, but it’s very funny. It’s gonna be a rockin’ good time.”
