One of the cool things to be seen in the new Doom Patrol trailer from DC Universe is that Silas Stone, father of Victor a.k.a. Cyborg, is played by a familiar face to those who love DC TV: Phil Morris, who played “John Jones,” the Martian Manhunter, in multiple episodes of Smallville.
Morris is no stranger to DC projects: He also voiced Vandal Savage in DC animations.
Interestingly, the actor who plays Silas Stone in the DCEU movies is also a Smallville veteran: That would be Joe Morton who played Dr. Steven Hamilton in early seasons of The WB/CW Superman prequel.
Look for Morris to make his first Doom Patrol appearance in the show’s second episode “Donkey Patrol” available February 22 on DC Universe.
