Toby Kebbell, best known for his work in Guy Ritchie’s “RocknRolla”, has been cast as comics villain Doctor Doom in Fox’s reboot of “Fantastic Four”, says THR.
The British actor beat Jack Huston and Domhnall Gleeson to the role of “Viktor von Doom, the son of a gypsy woman who ends up the ruler of a fictional country named Latveria. His character history includes attending university with Reed Richards, the man who will become the leader of the Fantastic Four (played by Teller). Like Richards, he is a genius but with an unchecked ego”.
Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Bell play the main roles in the Josh Trank-directed superhero movie.
Kebbell next appears in Fox’s “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes”.
