Clancy Brown? Hells yeah.
As the title suggests, the veteran actor has been added to The CW’s Arrow spin-off, The Flash. The Hollywood Reporter has word that Brown will be playing DC’s General Wade Eiling, often known as simply The General. In terms of roles, Brown is best known for the likes of Highlander, Starship Troopers, the awesome Sparks, and for providing the voice of Lex Luthor in a whole host of various animated affairs.
The report claims that this version of Eiling will be heading up a black ops army team who are hot on the heels of Kelly Frye’s Plastique in the hopes of using her as a human weapon. How The General plays out in The Flash, we’ll have to wait and see, although in the DC comic book world he is a sometimes friend and sometimes foe of the Justice League and of Amanda Waller. Either way, the addition of Clancy Brown to anything is always a good thing.
The Flash debuts on The CW on 7th October.
