Clarence Boddicker himself, Kurtwood Smith, has officially joined the voice cast of the 2013 CGI animated Batman show, Beware the Batman. He'll be voicing Lieutenant Jim Gordon.
During an interview with Movie Web, Smith talked to them his role on the show and how many episodes he's voice acted in so far:
"We just started. We've only recorded two, before Christmas. I like the general thrust of the show. It's early in the Batman story. Commissioner Gordon isn't even Commissioner yet, he's just Lieutenant Gordon. He doesn't trust Batman, even though they kind of end up helping each other out on an early case. Batman, in a lot of ways, is learning his way, and the relationship between he and Alfred is developing. It's fun and it's kind of straight in that regard, as opposed to being campy. I think it's going to be good, but it won't be out for at least a year or so."
This wouldn't be the first time Smith has voiced a character in the DCU, he's voiced Agent James Bennet on the Zeta Project/Batman Beyond, a Prosecutor in the Manhunter two part episode of Justice League, Kanjar Ro in Green Lantern: First Flight, and Shyir Rev in Green Lantern: The Animated Series.
Intresting to note, what Smith describes this being early in Batman and Gordon's careers, yet the villains featured in the show will be more modern villains in Professor Pyg and the Circus of the Strange.
