DC Entertainment has announced that twenty-year-old model and social media influencer Chella Man has signed on to portray the role of Jericho Wilson/Jericho, son of Deathstroke, in the upcoming second season of DC Universe’s “Titans”.
Man, who makes his acting debut in the series, gained recognition for his videos about his life living as a deaf, genderqueer, Chinese and Jewish young adult who has openly spoken about his gender transition.
The official description of the character: “Son of the infamous DC villain Deathstroke (played by Esai Morales), Joseph Wilson is the Titan known as Jericho. Mute after his father failed to rescue him from having his vocal cords severed by assassins, Jericho has the unique ability to possess anyone just by making eye contact.
