Alfred Molina joins DC Universe’s Harley Quinn as Mr. Freeze
With one of his most iconic roles being as another scientist gone mad in Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 2, Alfred Molina is returning to the comic book genre for the upcoming second season of DC Universe’s hit animated series Harley Quinn as Dr. Victor Fries, best known as Mr. Freeze, according to Comic Book Resources.
In addition to Molina, Sanaa Lathan (The Twilight Zone) has been confirmed to star as Catwoman in the second season of the R-rated animated hit. The Cleveland Show and Family Guy star was cast for the series in June, but it appears her appearance was planned for the next chapter.
The titular crazy beloved villain will be voiced by Big Bang Theory‘s Kaley Cuoco. The voice cast also includes Lake Bell (Children’s Hospital) as Poison Ivy, Alan Tudyk (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story) as Joker, Ron Funches (Powerless) as King Shark, JB Smoove (Curb Your Enthusiasm) as Frank the Plant, Jason Alexander (Seinfeld) as Sy Borgman, Wanda Sykes (Black-ish) as Queen of Fables, Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad) as Lex Luthor, Natalie Morales (Bojack Horseman), Jim Rash (Mike Tyson Mysteries) as Riddler, Diedrich Bader (Veep) as Batman, Tony Hale (Arrested Development, Veep) as Dr. Psycho, Chris Meloni (Happy!) as Commissioner Gordon, Rahul Kohli (iZombie) as Scarecrow, Lathan as Catwoman, Vanessa Marshall as Wonder Woman and Jacob Tremblay as Robin.
The series will follow Harley Quinn‘s adventures after her break with the Joker. The story will focus on Harley along with Poison Ivy and other DC castoffs as they try to help each other in order to earn a seat at the biggest table in villainy: the Legion of the Doom. The first season ended on an exciting cliffhanger, with the story for the second chapter still being kept under wraps.
Cuoco is also an executive producer on the series through her Yes, Norman Productions alongside Justin Halpern, Patrick Schumacker, and Dean Lorey. The series will stream on the DC Universe subscription service.
Harley Quinn season 1 is currently available for streaming on DC Universe and the second season will debut on April 3!
