The CW casts Nicholas Podany as Mojo Jojo in the upcoming Powerpuff Girls live-action pilot
The CW’s live-action Powerpuff Girls pilot has cast its first major villain in Mojo Jojo who will be portrayed by Nicholas Podany. Podany will portray an older version of Mojo Jojo who is constantly finding himself in personal odd with his sweetness and rage. As a kid, the nerdy, power-hungry, insecure JoJo was obsessed with The Powerpuff Girls, despite his father’s grudge against them.
In the original animated series, Mojo Jojo was The Powerpuff Girls’ biggest villains and frequently found themselves coming to blows with the super genius monkey as they thwarted his evil plans. Based on the description of the character it seems like Podany will sport a more humanized look as opposed to his father’s more traditional look from the animated series.
Nicholas Podany now joins Chloe Bennet, Dove Cameron, and Yana Perault who will portray the adult versions of The Powerpuff Girls, as well as Donald Faison who will portray Professor Utonium.
The “Powerpuff Girls” pilot hails from writers and executive producers Heather Regnier and Diablo Cody, with Cody executive producing via Vita Vera Films. Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, and David Madden will executive produce via Berlanti Productions. Erika Kennair will produce. Maggie Kiley will direct and executive produce the pilot. Warner Bros. Television will produce.
