WATCH: Hollywood star revealed as first of Justin Roiland’s voice replacements

The Rick & Morty voice actor was removed from all of his roles earlier this year following domestic violence charges.

In January this year, we reported that Justin Roiland had been dropped from two major shows that he co-created and voiced major characters in; Rick & Morty and Solar Opposites.

This was following the news that Roiland had been charged with one felony count of domestic battery with corporal injury and one felony count of false imprisonment by menace, violence, fraud and/or deceit.

Those charges were later dismissed by a California District Attorney due to lack of evidence, but further reports came to light, including one by The Hollywood Reporter which detailed years of his allegedly troubling behaviour.

While the voice cast for Rick & Morty remains unclear going forward, Disney and Hulu have revealed who will be replacing Roiland in the role of Korvo in their hit show Solar Opposites. Take a look at the brand new clip here and see if you can figure out who it is:

Yep, that is Dan Stevens, star of Downton Abbey, The Guest, and he played Beast in the live-action version of Beauty & The Beast. The clip reveals that a sci-fi gadget used incorrectly is the cause for Korvo’s sudden voice and accent change, and everyone within the show just accepts the change without too many questions.

All 11 episodes of the fourth season of Solar Opposites are due to arrive in the States this August, so we should expect to get them on Disney+ pretty soon after that, with a fifth season already picked up by Disney/Hulu.
