Actor Jay Lycurgo is known for his guest role as Marcus on HBO’s ‘I May Destroy You’ has boarded the cast of the DC television series Titans. Lycurgo will play the third Robin, in the recurring role of Tim Drake. After announcing the casting of Barbara Gordon last week, it appears yet another beloved perennial member of the Bat-Family with the actor will be featured in Titans Season 3.
Drake is described as a streetwise kid who’s managed to grow up on the toughest streets without losing his indelible belief in heroism. His easy-going demeanour is backed up by a near-genius mind, a natural detective with a perception of detail far beyond his years.
In the original DC comic books, Tim Drake was the third character to take up the mantle of Robin, succeeding Dick Grayson and Jason Todd as Batman/Bruce Wayne’s sidekick. It makes sense that Titans would be introducing Tim in Season 3.
Lycurgo joins actress Savannah Welch, who also recently joined the cast of the series’ third season. She’ll be taking on the role of Barbara Gordon Gotham City’s new police wheelchair-bound police commissioner. Barbara also used moonlight as Batgirl before the Joker shot and paralyzed her.
Titans stars Brenton Thwaites as Dick Grayson, Anna Diop as Kory Anders, Teagan Croft as Rachel Roth, Ryan Potter as Garfield Logan, Curran Walters as Jason Todd and Conor Leslie as Donna Troy, with Minka Kelly as Dawn Granger, Alan Ritchson as Hank Hall, Joshua Orpin as Superboy, Chelsea Zhang as Rose Wilson, Chella Man as Jericho, Drew Van Acker as Aqualad, Esai Morales as Deathstroke, Savannah Welch as Barbara Gordon, Jay Lycurgo as Tim Drake and Iain Glen as Bruce Wayne. The first two seasons are streaming now on HBO Max.
“Titans” was renewed for a third season at DC Universe in Nov. 2019. However, it was announced in September 2020 that DC Universe was moving out of the original scripted series, with its remaining scripted originals all shifting over to HBO Max. Filming is currently underway on season three and is expected to last until at least mid-June barring any further pandemic-related delays, which means the new season could premiere exclusively on HBO Max before the end of this calendar year.
