Alan Tudyk to Voice The Joker in DC’s Harley Quinn Animated Series

Nerdbot Cinema Reviews: “Virtuosity” Turns 25 This Month

"Virtuosity" lacks the tongue and cheek charm of its predecessors, making it a lackluster hodge-podge of sci-fi thriller concepts that ultimately crumbles under the weight of its own ambitions.

Loryn Stone has dedicated her life to the written Word of the Nerd. Her writing has also been published on other pop culture websites such as Cracked, LoadScreen, PopLurker, and Temple of Geek. Her debut young-adult novel "My Starlight" (a contemporary love letter to fandom, friendship, anime, cosplaying, love, and loss) is out now by Affinity Rainbow Publications. When she's not writing, Loryn's other interests include collecting robots (Megazords, specifically), playing bass, and blasting metal.

What does a firefly-class spaceship pilot, a candy themed royal race car driver, a thalassophobic (fear of the ocean) chicken, the duke of weaseltown (“it’s pronounced Wesselton!”), a weasel named Duke in Zootopia, and the clown prince of crime all have in common?

One man: Tudyk.

Alan Tudyk.

For years, Tudyk has entertained audiences across all age groups, whether on the big screen (Wreck-it-Ralph, Frozen, Moana) and the silver screen (Firefly, Powerless, Con Man), and now we finally get to hear the prolific actor take a turn as the Dark Knight’s ultimate villain and the on-again off-again romantic interest to the star of DC’s newest streamed show Harley Quinn.

During a recent interview with Diedrich Bader, who is returning for his own spin in the cowl since Batman: Brave & The Bold, it was let slip that Tudyk would be playing a “hilarious” Joker.

 

The star studded cast has unveiled Kaley Cuoco as Quinn, Lake Bell as Dr. Pamela Isley aka. Poison Ivy, Rahul Kohli as Dr. Jonathan Crane aka. Scarecrow and Diedrich Bader as Batman, with more roles reportedly to come (including Giancarlo Esposito, J.B. Smoove, Natalie Morales, and Christopher Meloni to name a few).

Tudyk is no newbie when it comes to taking on comedic vocal roles, and he could be the brightest and best thing about the entire new series. Sure, he’s not Mark Hamill,  but if he was trying too hard to be the OG animated Joker it would probably rub thousands the wrong way. The best way for Warner/DC to handle this newest property is to have fun and let him bring his own subtle style to the iconic role.

You can also catch more glorious Tudykness in Wreck-It-Ralph 2: Ralph Wrecks the Internet coming out November 21, 2018, as this leaf on the wind blows into a theater asap!
