    The Casting For "Powerpuff Girls" Just Got Spicier And Nicer With The Addition Of Donald Faision As Prof. Utonium

    Clueless, Scrubs, Powerpuff...Donald Faison DOES NOT MISS!

    Earlier this month, it was announced that The Powerpuff Girls reboot at the CW — which is now titled Powerpuff — cast its three leads: Chloe Bennet as Blossom, Dove Cameron as Bubbles, and Yana Perrault as Buttercup:

    Sugar and spice and everything nice!

    Well, earlier today, the actor playing Professor Utonium was announced...

    You may know Donald from an indie teen movie by the name of Clueless or an under-the-radar medical comedy by the name of Scrubs or, my personal favorite, a classic heist film by the name of Big Fat Liar.

    Like, when I heard this news, this was my initial reaction:

    However, they were not, in fact, jeepin'! But telling the TRUTH! Similar to Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup, Professor Utonium has a tad bit of a grittier role in the reboot:

    According to Variety: "Faison’s Professor Utonium is described as quirky, debonair, and a pinch narcissistic. He is a scientific genius who is immensely proud of the three extraordinary girls he created in his lab. Staring down a midlife crisis, he is determined to repair his relationships with his now-adult daughters."

    I was already pumped for this, and now I'm pumped x 100! Stay tuned for more casting news and premiere dates.


    Until then, I shall wait with bated breath.
