HOLY FOLEY! JASON MARSDEN, THE BOY WONDER



I just ran into Jason Marsden, the very fine actor who voices Richie "Gear" Foley on STATIC SHOCK and Snapper Carr on JUSTICE LEAGUE. He told me about his upcoming TV movie gig, and damned if it wasn't on-topic here. Jason will be playing Robin The Boy Wonder, sort of. Actually, he'll be playing Burt Ward, the 1960's TV Robin, in a bio-pic. Again, sort of. I'll let TV Guide take a stab at explaining:

"Return to the Batcave: The Misadventures of Adam and Burt is a tongue-in-cheek comedy adventure in which West and Ward, playing themselves, stumble upon a diabolical plot to steal the original Batmobile from a charity benefit."

Jason plays Burt Ward in flashbacks. You'll want to check this out, if only to prove to yourself that I'm not lying. It's on Sunday, March 9th at 9 PM on CBS.
