Titans is quickly coming together with cast members that include as Anna Diop as Starfire, Brenton Thwaites as Nightwing, Teagan Croft as Raven, Alan Richardson as Hawk, and Minka Kelly as Dove. Casting is still underway for a couple more key roles.
Our good friends over at ThatHashtagShow revealed some Titans character breakdowns last month, which included one for Jax. Suggesting that this was indeed the animal shapeshifting hero Beast Boy.
[JAX]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
Now, we have some support for their reporting with five audition tapes Omega Underground has uncovered for the role of Beast Boy aka Jax. Hopefuls include Nathan Policarpio, Oliver Adkins, Diego Josef along with Aussies Zach Heto, and Louis Le.
These tapes confirm they are indeed open to the role being filled by an Asian actor.
There is word that a casting announcement concerning Beast Boy is incoming which isn’t surprising with production set to start soon.
The off-camera role speaking to Jax in these tapes was Dale Ford, and Toronto actor Kyle Gatehouse is the only one we could find audition tapes reading for Dale.
We also have a couple other audition tapes for characters Amy (Karen Knox) and Molly (Caitlin Harris).
ThatHashtagShow reported that the Titans’ version of Dick Grayson will be a police officer, so it’s most likely Amy will be fellow Bludhaven police officer Amy Rohrbach.
The Molly role is a little fuzzier but it could be for Green Lantern (Adam Scott) baddie Molly Mayne (Harlequin) but your guess is as good as ours.
We previously reported that production on Titans will start on September 25th in Toronto.
