Earlier today it was revealed that actor Matt Bomer would take on the role of Negative Man for the live action Doom Patrol series.

Bomer is perhaps best known for his role in the USA series, White Collar, where he portrayed criminal Neal Caffrey. He is currently expected to portray the character in flashback scenes as well as provide the voice of the character in present scenes. The show is expected to debut sometime in 2019.
