Harley Quinn’s animated series looks to be coming together as The Hashtag Show has revealed several character breakdowns for the cast of the show. It may be Harley’s show but The Joker and Poison Ivy will be appearing as series regulars, with Mr. J serving as the romantic interest while Ivy will take the role of best friend and roommate.
Also along for the ride are Sy Borgman as Harley’s landlord and Dr. Psycho, Malice Vundabar, King Shark and Clayface as Harley’s Gang. It’s clear that the show is going for an “adult” tone as Dr. Psycho’s character breakdown includes his use of the “C-word.” Let’s just hope this doesn’t result in the show being shocking for the sake of saying they’re shocking. Check out the full breakdowns below.
THE JOKER (40) Equal parts homicidal and charismatic, he’s been Harley’s longtime awful boyfriend, but when Harley breaks up with him, she vows to take his cherished number-one spot on the Most Wanted list. The Joker thinks of Harley as his creation and, as she grows in power, does everything he can to stop her. (SERIES REGULAR)
DR. PAMELA ISLEY (AKA “POISON IVY”) (LATE 20’s) Sarcastic and incredibly smart, Ivy is Harley’s best friend and now roommate. Very much a loner (she prefers plants over people), Ivy is sometimes the voice of reason but always a true friend to Harley. Ivy soon becomes her reluctant partner-in-crime. (SERIES REGULAR)
SY BORGMAN (90’s) Once upon a time, Sy used to be a suave, super spy. Now in his 90s, he’s a wheelchair user with most of his body replaced by creaky 50s era bionic parts. Crotchety, difficult and longs to become relevant again. He’s also Harley and Ivy’s landlord, and insists they take him on their heists so can get back into the action – or else he won’t repair the plumbing. (SERIES REGULAR)
DR. PSYCHO (Mid-40s) An angry misogynist dwarf with telekinesis. He was a major villain until the “incident” ten years ago when in the midst of losing a battle against Wonder Woman he became frustrated and called her the C-word. In front of hundreds of camera phones. Even other villains were disgusted. Disgraced, the only one who’ll have him is Harley. A woman. He can’t stand it, but he’ll do anything to get back into the villain community. (SERIES REGULAR)
MALICE VUNDABAR Early 20s, pretty, but over it. She’s an alien (but looks human) and her family is crazy rich and powerful, she’s interning with Harley’s gang for college credit. The only thing she cares about is her demonic shadow cat named Chessure that she carries around in her designer purse. It’s a friend and fashion item and it destroys everything it sees. (SERIES REGULAR)
KING SHARK (30) His lower half is human, but his upper half is the body of a great white shark. Even though he looks incredibly fierce, he’s a gentle soul who just wants to be normal. That is, until he smells blood. And then he goes into a frenzy and literally eats everyone around him leaving death and carnage everywhere. Then feels bad about it. (SERIES REGULAR)
CLAYFACE (Mid 30’s) A large, humanoid mass of clay, Clayface was a struggling, trained actor until a terrible pottery accident turned him into the shapeshifting villain he is now. His aspirations for stardom and his ability to transform his appearance to look like anyone should help him land some roles but he’s such a terrible actor that the only work he can get is with Harley’s crew, pretending to be whoever they need him to be help with a heist. He still holds out hope that he’ll land one of the many auditions he fruitlessly goes on. (SERIES REGULAR)
With word that Young Justice won’t premiere until at least late 2018, the Harley Quinn animated series will probably not launch until 2019 since it was announced and production for it began well after the initial announcement of the streaming service. But when it does debut, Harley fans can expect a similar tone to the recent run on Harley Quinn by Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti based on the character descriptions.
