We reported to you earlier about Neil Patrick Harris lending his vocal talents to a new villain on the animated Cartoon Network series “Batman: The Brave and the Bold” series. Set your DVRs- the ep starring, NPH’s villain, the Music Meister, premieres this Friday, October 23rd at 7:30 EST.
Here’s a synopsis of the ep:
Batman: The Brave and the Bold
“Mayhem of the Music Meister!”
Friday, October 23
7:30 p.m. (ET, PT)
The half-hour rock-pop opera ‘Mayhem of the Music Meister!’ features Harris as an all-new villain—The Music Meister—bent on overthrowing Gotham City and the entire world through the power of his beguiling singing voice. The entire heroic cast joins in the chorus, answering The Music Meister’s call with their own singing capabilities, including Jeff Bennett as Batman, Grey Delisle as Black Canary and James Arnold Taylor as Green Arrow.
The original score is composed by Kristopher Carter, Michael McCuistion and Lolita Ritmanis, who form Dynamic Music Partners.
Lyrics for the songs were written by Michael Jelenic and James Tucker.
Here’s a sneak peek at Harris’ musical performance in this curious music video for “Drives Us Bats”:
The soundtrack is available October 24th! All hail the Music Meister! How can you say ‘no’ to a villain that makes you break out in song? There’s a sneak peek of the Music Meister ep at the show’s site here.
On the flipside, rocker/ actor Henry Rollins will lend his voice to the DC character, Cliff Steele aka Robotman in an upcoming ep of “Batman: The Brave and the Bold”. No news yet on when this ep will premiere, but Comics Continuum reports that Robotman’s teammates in the Doom Patrol will make an appearance. Rollins had previously voiced Johnny Rancid in “Teen Titans” and Mad Stan in “Batman Beyond” and currently is on FX’s “Sons of Anarchy”.
