For those of you who didn’t immediately recognize his name, James Callis won fans over and is most recognized for his amazing role as “Gaius Baltar” in the TV Reboot of Battlestar Galactia several years ago.
TV Guide broke the news earlier today that Callis will have a guest-starring role in the upcoming second half of the season, which resumes on January 16th.
Callis will be playing a character called “The Dodger“, who according to TV Guide is “”an elusive international jewel thief who imposes his plans on the innocent, forcing them to carry out his crimes under duress. When the Sherwood Ruby goes missing in Starling City, the ensuing investigation leads Oliver (Stephen Amell) and Diggle (David Ramsey) straight to The Dodger, but apprehending him won’t be as easy as they may have thought.”
While there is no confirmation that the version of “The Dodger” will be an adaptation of the lesser known character from DC Comics or if it will be an entirely new character, fans are welcoming the idea of the actor appearing in the show.
ARROW returns to TV on the CW this January 16th to its normal time on Wednesdays at 8pm.
