The Flash adds two more actors to its ranks… this time a goodie and a baddie.
First up, Violett Beane is onboard as another speedster, Jesse Quick, daughter of Golden Age character Johnny Quick in the comics. Here, she is “a brilliant but quirky college student who gets caught up in the battle between The Flash and Season 2’s big bad, Zoom.”
Also cast is 12 Monkeys star Demore Barnes who will play Henry Hewitt, Firestorm’s enemy Tokamak. In the comics Tokamak could absorb powers and here is “a charming, but cocky scientist who was affected by the same Particle Accelerator explosion that created the Flash. When Caitlin Snow (Danielle Panabaker) recruits him to join the team at S.T.A.R. Labs, Hewitt jumps at the opportunity to fulfill his destiny as a powerful meta-human.”
Is there no end to how far into the comics’ history The Flash will delve? Nope and we LOVE it…
Run, Barry, Run…
The Flash speeds back for season two on Tuesday, October 6th
