[USA], Sep 06 (ANI): Hollywood actor Timothy Dalton is all set to return to television as 'The Cheif' in DC Comics' live-action series 'Doom Patrol'.

Dr. Niles "The Chief" Caulder, in the series, is described as a pioneer in medical science who is searching the world for those on the edge of death. Brilliant but controversial, Dr. Caulder stops at nothing to help the needy, including his collection of strange heroes known as the Doom Patrol.

The one-time James Bond will take on his first series regular part since the end of his three-season run on Showtime's 'Penny Dreadful' in 2016.

His fans went berserk over the news and took to Twitter to express the excitement.

A user wrote, "Timothy Dalton as the chief in Doom Patrol is the best casting in the whole damn world."

"Casting Timothy Dalton pretty much confirms to me that #DoomPatrol is going with the callous, duplicitous, murderous interpretation of The Chief from Grant Morrison's run." wrote another user.

Written by Jeremy Carver, 'Doom Patrol' revolves around the iconic DC Comics characters, Robotman (Brendan Fraser), Negative Man (Dwain Murphy), Elasti-Woman (April Bowlby) and Crazy Jane (Diane Guerrero), who are led by modern-day mad scientists Dr. Niles Caulder and Cyborg (Joivan Wade).(ANI)
