Rob Lowe has signed up to appear on a new Cartoon Network series.

TV Guide reports that Lowe will have a role on Young Justice.

The cartoon focuses on a group of teenagers who want to prove that they can make it as top superheroes.

Producer Greg Weisman explained: "This is a show about the lives of young heroes and their need to prove themselves to their mentors, their families, to each other and most of all to themselves."

Lowe will reportedly play an adult whose secret identity is 10-year-old Billy Batson. Billy transforms into Captain Marvel, also known as Shazam, and is said to have powers including the wisdom of Solomon, the strength of Hercules, the stamina of Atlas, the power of Zeus, the courage of Achilles and the speed of Mercury.

Lowe's part is expected to be a recurring character, meaning that the actor could be involved with a number of episodes.
