Brendan Fraser Joining DC's Doom Patrol As Robotman

While his big screen career hasn't been filled with success and blockbuster jobs of late, Brendan Fraser has found plenty to keep him busy on TV. He's now joining the cast of the DC Universe series Doom Patrol.

The show, which will be shown on the comics company's streaming service, brings the unusual superhero team created by Arnold Drake, Bob Haney and Bruno Premian in 1963 to life in live-action form. Supernatural veteran Jeremy Carver is the main writer for the show, which unites a group of powered outcasts under the leadership of the mysterious Dr. Niles Caulder and Cyborg (Jovian Wade). Together Robotman, Negative Man, Elasti-Woman (April Bowlby) and Crazy Jane (Diane Guerrero) go on a mission to the weirder corners of the sprawling comics universe.

Fraser will provide the voice-over for Robotman (to be played in costume by Riley Shanahan on set) and will appear in flashbacks as his alter ego, Cliff Steele. A racing driver who was horrifically injured in an accident, Steele's body was replaced by Dr. Caulder, leading to the creation of Robotman.

With DC TV supremo Greg Berlanti producing alongside Sarah Schecter from his company and DC's Geoff Johns, the show should hit the subscription services next year.

Everybody's welcome at Ma's. But good luck getting home safe.

Oscar winner Octavia Spencer stars as Sue Ann, a loner who keeps to herself in her quiet Ohio town. One day, she is asked by Maggie, a new teenager in town (Diana Silvers, Glass), to buy some booze for her and her friends, and Sue Ann sees the chance to make some unsuspecting, if younger, friends of her own.

She offers the kids the chance to avoid drinking and driving by hanging out in the basement of her home. But there are some house rules: One of the kids has to stay sober. Don't curse. Never go upstairs. And call her "Ma."

But as Ma's hospitality starts to curdle into obsession, what began as a teenage dream turns into a terrorizing nightmare, and Ma's place goes from the best place in town to the worst place on earth.

Ma also stars Juliette Lewis (August: Osage County) as Maggie's mom, Luke Evans (Beauty …
