Ed‘s Tom Cavanagh has joined The CW’s upcoming The Flash. The Hollywood Reporter is claiming that Cavanagh will be playing Harrison Wells, S.T.A.R. Labs CEO. The character was mentioned in the mid-season finale of Arrow, although he is a new creation for TV rather than an already established member of the DC comic book world.
The Flash is set to star Grant Gustin as Barry Allen/Flash, Rick Gosnett as Eddie Thawne/Professor Zoom, Danielle Panabaker as Caitlin Snow/Killer Frost, Carlos Valdes as Cisco Ramon/Vibe, Candice Patton as Iris West and Jesse L. Martin as Detective West.
Developed by Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg and Geoff Johns, The Flash‘s pilot is expected to drop towards the middle of the year.
