Battlestar Galactica actor James Callis is set to appear in Arrow as “an elusive international jewel thief”.
That’s right, The Dodger is set to make an appearance on the show, according to TV Guide, as someone who “imposes his plans on the innocent, forcing them to carry out his crimes under duress”.
A synopsis of the episode in which he appears is described as follows: “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.”
The character ‘Dodger’ in the comic books first appeared in Green Arrow and Black Canary #7 in 2008. He began as a thieving villain and eventually turned into an ally for Oliver Queen.
