Casting Breakdowns Revealed for DC's TITANS Series
That Hashtag Show has managed to obtain the casting breakdowns for Titans, the upcoming live-action series for DC Comics' new digital service that was announced at the end of April.
Production on the series is expected to begin this September in Atlanta, and it appears as though casting for the series is already in process. The four character names provided appear to be attempts to conceal the identities of the various Titans, but from the descriptions below, it appears they belong to Nightwing, Raven, Starfire, and Beast Boy, respectively.
[John Crossland] (NIGHTWING/DICK GRAYSON) Male, late 20s-early 30s, Caucasian. Equal parts charm and impenetrability, John is a cop. He has a nice smile, tired eyes and a cool, distant manner. However, when provoked, his eyes are so lethal “they drain a man of every last bit of spleen.” John is haunted by the murder of his family. Unbeknownst to those around him, he is also a vigilante. In the shadows, he fights with the commitment and conviction of an artist, the brutal grace of a dancer. Mentally and physically, he is covered in a map of scars. And though he fights to escape his past, it is often a losing battle…SERIES LEAD
[SARAH] (RAVEN/RACHEL ROTH) Female, Mid teens, Open Ethnicity. Troubled, bullied, often scared but unwilling to show it, Sarah is a loner more comfortable hiding in her hoodie than making friends.

She is also plagued by recurring nightmares that lead her across the country in search of help…SERIES REGULAR
[Casey] (STARFIRE/KORIAND'R) Female, 20s, Open ethnicity. Casey is a tall, stunning woman, her beauty so magnificent it’s almost inhuman. Elegant, refined and mysterious, she is on the hunt to discover who is trying to kill her and why. And those after her are in for a surprise because she’s more deadly than anyone they’ve ever encountered…SERIES REGULAR
[JAX] (BEAST BOY/GARFIELD LOGAN) Male, Mid-late teens, Open Ethnicity, Asian preferred. Funny and charming, this amateur thief’s humor hides his insecurities and past pain. Not the toughest kid on the streets, he’s learned to survive in the world with his wit and quick-thinking…SERIES REGULAR
Titans is expected to premiere on DC's digital service sometime in early 2018.
