Curb Your Enthusiasm alum Dana Lee is set to play a character named "Doc" in Warner Bros.' upcoming DC film Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn).
In a recent interview, Dana offered up some new details regarding his character. While it wasn't previously mentioned just how big a part Doc would play in the film, it now seems the character will serve as a caring parental figure to Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn.
"[Doc owns] this little restaurant and [his] residence is above there," Lee told Your Entertainment Corner. "Every time Harley Quinn gets in trouble with the Joker, she would come and stay with me. And I'm like her -- like she says in the story -- I'm her Taiwanese grandfather she never had."
Lee has over four decades of acting experience, appearing films such as Pineapple Express, Lethal Weapon 4 and Rambo: First Blood Part II. More recently, he has appeared on the television shows Dr. Ken and Hawaii Five-0.
Directed by Cathy Yan from a script by Christina Hodson, Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) stars Margot Robbie, Jurnee Smollett-Bell, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Rosie Perez, Ewan McGregor, Steven Williams, Derek Wilson, Dana Lee, Francois Chau, Charlene Amoia, Chris Messina and Matthew Willig. The film is scheduled for release on Feb. 7, 2020.
