Ezra Miller’s ‘Invincible’ Role Recast Following Controversies

Ezra Miller’s role in Prime Video’s Invincible has seemingly been recast in the wake of the actor’s controversies leading up to the release of The Flash.

In season one of the animated series, Miller, who uses they/them pronouns, voiced District Attorney Sinclair, a genius who attended Upstate University and believes that human weaknesses can be solved by engineering. After being defeated by the Invincible team, he returns in this week’s episode of season two, “I’m Not Going Anywhere.”

This time around, however, it appears the mad scientist is no longer voiced by Miller but instead by Eric Bauza. The actor has more than 350 voice credits, including X-Men ’97, Krapopolis, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Rick & Morty.

The Hollywood Reporter has reached out to Miller’s rep and Prime Video for comment.

Steven Yeun, Sandra Oh, Zazie Betz, Seth Rogen, J.K. Simmons, Walton Goggins, Mark Hamill, Gillian Jacobs, Andrew Rannells, Mahershala Ali, Zachary Quinto, Jason Mantzoukas, Kevin Michael Richardson, Grey Griffin, Khary Payton and Malese Jow round out the Invincible cast.

The controversies surrounding Miller began in April 2020, when a video appeared of them in Reykjavik, Iceland, where they appeared to choke a female fan outside of a bar. The string of incidents continued over the next two years and included protective orders against the actor and several arrests.

In August 2022, the Fantastic Beasts actor issued a statement apologizing for their behavior and noted they were experiencing “complex mental health issues” and seeking treatment.

“Having recently gone through a time of intense crisis, I now understand that I am suffering complex mental health issues and have begun ongoing treatment,” the statement read. “I want to apologize to everyone that I have alarmed and upset with my past behavior. I am committed to doing the necessary work to get back to a healthy, safe and productive stage in my life.”

The final episode of Invincible season two, which was split into two parts, premieres April 4 on Prime Video.
