Tom Cavanagh joins the CW’s The Flash

February 11th, 2014 by Edwin Torres Jr Comments

Tom Cavanagh (Ed) is set to play a genius physicist in The CW’s upcoming Arrow spinoff, The Flash.

The Wrap reports that Cavanagh will play S.T.A.R. Labs’ Harrison Wells. Wells is not a DC Comics character, but the name was previously mentioned on the Arrow mid-season finale, “Three Ghosts”.

Harrison is described as a rock star in the world of physics and the mind and money behind Central City’s S.T.A.R. Labs Particle Accelerator. He becomes a pariah after his lab explodes. But he redeems himself when he discovers that his failed experiment accidentally created the world’s fastest man, The Flash (Grant Gustin).

Cavanagh will join Grant Gustin as Barry Allen, Candice Patton as Iris West, Jesse L. Martin as Iris’s father, Detective West, Rick Gosnett as Central City Police Detective Eddie Thawne aka Professor Zoom/Reverse Flash, Carlos Valdes as Cisco Ramon aka Vibe and Danielle Panabaker as S.T.A.R. Labs bioengineer Caitlin Snow aka Killer Frost.

The Flash arrives from co-creators Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg who, along with Geoff Johns, will write the pilot episode with Arrow pilot director David Nutter at the helm.
