A report has been released by Empire today stating that Melissa Rauch (Big Bang Theory, I Love You Man) will play the voice of Harley Quinn in the upcoming animated film Batman and Harley Quinn.
Arleen Sorkin did the voice for Harley Quinn from 1992 until 2011, when Tara Strong began taking the role in most productions. Now Melissa Rauch will take on this iconic role and bring her own unique spin to the character.
Rauch will work alongside the legendary Kevin Conroy, who will reprise his role as Batman for the 40th time. Loren Lester will also reprise his role as Nightwing.
