Alias actor Anders joins Arrow cast

November 28th, 2012 by Marc Comments

Arrow may not be the most hi-brow show on TV, but gosh it’s fun… and it keeps getting better.

With the inclusion of Huntress (here), the Arrow universe is expanding at an impressive and enjoyable way. The newest addition is in the form of Alias (and The Vampire Diaries – everyone has to eat – ed)  favourite, David Anders (above) who will play Cyrus Vanch in episode 13.

According to Zap2it: Vanch is a ruthless career criminal who is released from prison after a long stint. Laurel is particularly invested in taking Vanch down. When she discovers that the police can’t get him off the streets, she turns to the Arrow for help. Unfortunately, the cunning Vanch is one step ahead of them — he’s looking to take control of Starling City’s criminal underworld, and in order to prove himself to the lowlifes, he’s got a mind to eliminate the man criminals fear most.

Hmmmmm… now that Oliver isn’t just targeting the men on his father’s list, it looks like all bets are of.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
