TVLine Items: Harley Quinn Meets Nightwing, J.J.'s U2 Series and More

Harvey Guillen Harley Quinn

Harvey Guillén — who as of late seems to be doing everything in addition to What We Do in the Shadows — next will veritably suit up as DC Comics’ Nightwing.

As reported by our sister site Deadline, Guillén will lend his voice to Batman sidekick Robin’s evolved identity in Season 3 (premiere date TBD) of the acclaimed adult animated series Harley Quinn, which also will feature The Suicide Squad director James Gunn as… James Gunn.

Nightwing, aka Dick Grayson, of course, is played in HBO Max’s action Titans series by Brenton Thwaites.

In addition to his ongoing role on FX’s WWDITS, Guillén had a role on the Prime Video hit Reacher and voices José the Spider Receptionist on Netflix’s newly released Big Mouth offshoot Human Resources. He also reportedly has a key role in DC Films’ upcoming Blue Beetle movie.
