Crazy Jane Has Been Cast in DC's Live-Action DOOM PATROL Series
Diane Guerrero (Orange is the New Black) has been cast in the role of Crazy Jane in DC's upcoming live-action Doom Patrol series. She is one of the lead characters in the series.
Guerrero’s Crazy Jane is described as "an unlikely hero suffering from the world’s most severe case of multiple personality disorder. Each of her 64 distinct personas manifest a different super power making Jane the Doom Patrol’s most powerful member…and also its most unstable."
Guerrero seems like a great actress to take on the role. She will join April Bowlby as Elasti-Girl and Kelsy Grammer, who is in talks to play Dr. Caulder. This group of heroic outcasts also includes Robotman, and Negative Man. Together these rejects find themselves on a mission that will take them to the weirdest and most unexpected corners of the DC universe. Here's the synopsis:
DOOM PATROL is a re-imagining of one of DC’s most beloved group of outcast Super Heroes: Robotman, Negative Man, Elasti-Girl and Crazy Jane, led by modern-day mad scientist Dr. Niles Caulder (The Chief). The Doom Patrol’s members each suffered horrible accidents that gave them superhuman abilities—but also left them scarred and disfigured. Traumatized and downtrodden, the team found purpose through The Chief, who brought them together to investigate the weirdest phenomena in existence—and to protect Earth from what they find. Part support group, part Super Hero team, the Doom Patrol is a band of super-powered freaks who fight for a world that wants nothing to do with them. Picking up after the events of TITANS, DOOM PATROL will find these reluctant heroes in a place they never expected to be, called to action by none other than Cyborg, who comes to them with a mission hard to refuse, but with a warning that is hard to ignore: their lives will never, ever be the same.
Doom Patrol is being written by Jeremy Carver who will executive produce it alongside Geoff Johns, and Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter.
The series received a 13-episode straight-to-series order and it will begin production this year for a 2019 premiere on DC Universe.
