The newest incarnation of Harley Quinn will be voiced by Kaley Cuoco, Warner Bros. announced on Wednesday at New York Comic-Con.
The “Big Bang Theory” star will headline the animated series for the DC streaming service, joining a cast that includes Lake Bell, Alan Tudyk, Ron Funches, JB Smoove, Jason Alexander, Wanda Sykes, Giancarlo Esposito, Natalie Morales, Jim Rash, Diedrich Bader, Tony Hale and Chris Meloni.
Cuoco was revealed as the new voice of the character in a teaser that debuted at the premiere of DC Universe’s live-action “Titans” series on Wednesday.
In the tongue-in-cheek clip, the character explains from her jail cell that her series will not be “gritty and bleak and depressing” like some other DC adaptations — even though that’s an “excellent way to make television and film.”
“It’s got comedy, action, incredibly gratuitous violence, and unlike that ‘Deadpool’ cartoon, it’s actually coming out,” the character says, taking a shot at Donald Glover’s now-shelved FX adaptation.
In addition to voicing the character, Cuoco is also set to serve as executive producer on the series, via her Yes, Norman Productions banner, alongside Justin Halpern, Patrick Schumacker and Dean Lorey.
