Grant Gustin Is ‘The Flash’ for CW’s Arrow


Big news for fans of DC Comics Green Arrow TV show on the CW, aptly named Arrow. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Gustin, who some may recognize as playing Sebastian Smythe on Glee, will appear in the eighth, ninth, and 20th episodes of Arrow‘s second season.

Earlier this year it was revealed that the role would actually serve as a backdoor pilot for a potential “Flash” TV show for the CW.

Along with the reveal of the casting we have now a few more details on how Barry Allen will be portrayed in the upcoming season of Arrow:

“Part of the fun for the audience … is to see how we view our Arrow take on the Flash legacy,” [Arrow co-creator Andrew] Kreisberg said. “Some of it will feel very familiar to DC Comics, some of it hopefully will feel different, fresh and exciting. The same way we approached Arrow is the same way we’re approaching Barry.”

Arrow  season 2 returns to the CW on Wednesday October 9th, at 8:00-9:00 PM ET.
