Alan Ritchson and Minka Kelly are bringing Hawk and Dove to life on Titans!
The Teen Titans live-action series Titans is continuing to expand its cast and this talent already has a connection to the DC Universe. It was announced today by Deadline that Alan Ritchson (Smallville, Blood Drive, the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movies) and Minka Kelly (Friday Night Lights, Almost Human) have joined the DC project as Hank Hall a.k.a. Hawk and Dawn Granger a.k.a. Dove.
Ritchson and Kelly will both be recurring guest stars but has series regular options for a potential second season according to Deadline. But the fun doesn’t stop there because according to the trade, Warner Bros. TV is looking at potentially doing a Hawk and Dove spin-off show with the two actors on the DC digital streaming service. Here is how they describe Hawk and Dove in the series:
“Hawk (aka Hank Hall), one-half of the crime-fighting, vigilante and romantic couple of Hawk and Dove. The perfect example of opposites attract, Hawk is an aggressive, offensive bruiser while Dove is strategic, defensive and lithe.
Dove (aka Dawn Granger) is one-half of the crime-fighting, vigilante duo and romantic couple Dove and Hawk. Dove is strategic, defensive and lithe, the opposite of Hawk, an aggressive, offensive bruiser.”
The two actors will join previously announced stars Teagan Croft, Anna Diop, and Brenton Thwaites as Rachel Roth a.k.a. Raven, Starfire, and Dick Grayson respectively. The show is still missing one more series regular character as Garfield Logan a.k.a. Beast Boy will be making his live-action debut.
“Titans explores one of the most popular comic book teams ever. It follows a group of young soon-to-be superheroes recruited from every corner of the DC Universe. In the action-adventure series, Dick Grayson emerges from the shadows to become the leader of a fearless band of new heroes that includes Starfire, Raven and others.”
