It’s just been revealed that Justice League actor Ray Fisher — who portrayed Victor Stone, AKA Cyborg, in the superhero crossover — has been selected to help round out the cast of the third season of HBO’s hit series True Detective.
After a multi-year hiatus following a divisive second season, True Detective is back in development, with the season’s mystery involving a story in the Ozarks spanning three time periods. Deadline has just broke the news that Fisher will be joining the anthology show’s ensemble as a supporting character — Freddy Burns, the son of lead character Wayne Hays (Mahershala Ali).
Prior to a lead role in Justice League and a cameo appearance in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Fisher’s acting career was mostly limited to the stage (including various roles in “Shakespeare Live” productions and the role of Tom Robinson in a stage version of the Harper Lee novel To Kill A Mockingbird), as well as an appearance on the ABC period series The Astronauts Wives Club. True Detective represents his first major role in a television series.
True Detective Season 3 does not yet have a return date. Its cast includes Mahershala Ali, Carmen Ejogo, Stephen Dorff, Scoot McNairy, Mamie Gummer, Ray Fisher, Rhys Wakefield, Michael Greyeyes, and Jon Tenney.
10 Actors Who Should Play Red Hood In The DC Extended Universe
Not much is known about The Batman, but one thing is clear: the Red Hood would make an incredible villain. While there have been a few iterations of the Red Hood over the years, I’m specifically referring to when Jason Todd, one of Batman’s former sidekicks, takes up the mantle. After being brutally murdered by the Joker, Jason Todd was buried and believed dead by the world. As a result of the universe-altering event Infinite Crisis, his death was retconned and he spent years developing a grudge to his former mentor for leaving him alone.
Over time, Jason Todd dons the villainous Red Hood mantle and decides to wage a one-man war on crime. Unlike Batman, he doesn’t have limits though. Red Hood is a proud killer, and instead of wiping crime from the city, he aims to take over the drug trade himself to ensure no one sells to kids. He’s an extremely complex, interesting character, so he obviously needs a talented performer to bring him to life on the big screen.
