The actor will lend his voice to the role first created on the original 70s series
Dan Stevens is coming back to TV. Well, at least his voice is.
The former “Downton Abbey” star will lend his voice to the futuristic world of The CW's “Tomorrow People” as its biological computer TIM, an individual with knowledge of the casting told TheWrap.
TIM was a character on the original 70s series from the UK, as well. It would help the team out with information for its missions. It remains to be seen how closely the Warner Bros. Television production will stick to the original character and how TIM will be introduced.
Stevens recently walked away from his role on ITV's “Downton Abbey” as lower class cousin-turned-lord-of-the-manor, Matthew Crawley, after its third season. He has since starred in the movies “Summer in February,” “The Fifth Estate,” “A Walk Among the Tombstones,” and “The Guest.”

It debuts Wednesday, Oct. 9 at 9/8c.
