Ritchson, Kelly Are Hawk & Dove For “Titans”

They were previously rumored as front runners, now it’s confirmed – Alan Ritchson (“Smallville”) and Minka Kelly (“Friday Night Lights”) have joined the cast of the DC live-action series “Titans”.

The pair will play crime-fighting/romantic duo Hawk (aka Hank Hall) and Dove (aka Dawn Granger) in the show produced by Warner Bros. Television. Both are recurring roles but could be upped to regulars if a second season goes forward.

Titans follows a group of young rising heroes, led by Batman’s former protege Dick Grayson (Brenton Thwaites) and including the likes of Starfire (Anna Diop), Raven and others.

Akiva Goldsman, Geoff Johns and Greg Berlanti are penning the series which will premiere in 2018 as part of DC’s new direct-to-consumer digital service.
