We’ve already known that Titans season 3 would be featuring some new characters. For instance, there will now be a Batgirl on Titans. But in addition to Batgirl and Red Hood, we found out during FanDome last year that another character would be joining the show. And now we know that Vincent Kartheiser will be playing Scarecrow, that other character.

You Might Know Vincent Kartheiser from Such Roles As “Mad Men’s Greatest Meme”

Kartheiser, a Minneapolis native, has been acting since he was a child. He had roles in movies like Alaska, for example, and uh, The Indian in the Cupboard. (Yikes on the bikes.) Then he was able to transition successfully to roles in teen comedies like All I Wanna Do and more adult fare, like Larry Clark’s Another Day in Paradise.

He also worked extensively in television. His first big role was as Connor on the Buffy the Vampire Slayer spin-off Angel. It was his next role, though, for which is he probably best known. From the show’s beginning in 2007 to its end in 2015, Kartheiser played the role of Pete Campbell on Mad Men. Campbell could be a divisive character on the show. However, he was certainly a memorable one. Vulture, for instance, calls one of his lines “Mad Men’s Greatest Meme.” I can definitely say that it is the line that I, a person who has seen exactly one episode, quote the most. Anyway, most recently you might have seen him in the Netflix docudrama The Social Dilemma.

Vincent Kartheiser Will Be Playing Scarecrow in Titans Season 3

Even if you’re not a die-hard DC Comics fan, then you still might recognize the character Scarecrow. Also known as Dr. Jonathan Crane, Cillian Murphy played the character in the Dark Knight film trilogy. In addition, Ozark‘s Charlie Tahan played a young version in the Fox series Gotham. And now, of course, Kartheiser is playing him on Titans.

There are no details about Scarecrow’s storyline on the show at this time. Presumably, though, he’s doing the regular Just Scarecrow Things. You know, like being at Arkham, experimenting with his fear gas, being too shy to try out a bolder-colored burlap mask. I might have made one of those up. Anyway, as we’ve told you, you can expect season 3 later this year. And I’m sure we’ll find out more details soon.
