Arthur Darvill, who played a companion to the Doctor in BBC’s Doctor Who, is in final negotiations to join the cast of the WB’s untitled DC Arrow/Flash spinoff show.
The series’ cast already includes Brandon Routh as incredible shrinking hero The Atom (aka Ray Palmer), Wentworth Miller as Captain Cold, Dominic Purcell as Mick Rory and Victor Garber as Prof. Martin Stein among others.
Arrow returns next week as Oliver (Stephen Amell) has a big choice.
A Paleyfest panel featuring the cast and executive producers kicked off with a sizzle reel teasing the rest of the season. Among the revelations: Oliver's secret identity is no longer so secret, with Ray Palmer (Brandon Routh) and Det. Lance (Paul Blackthorne) both learning he is the vigilante.
Rookie Blue star Gregory Smith is stepping behind the camera for Wednesday's Arrow, marking a reunion for the former Everwood star and its creator, Greg Berlanti.
Smith, who played teen Ephram Brown on The WB series from 2002-06, credits Arrow executive producer Berlanti with giving him the directing bug, and is stepping into Starling City for one of the biggest episodes of the season.
[Warning: Spoilers ahead for Wednesday's episode of Arrow, "Uprising"]
Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) made a dramatic return from the dead in Wednesday's Arrow.
Oliver made his way back from oversees, and delivered a dramatic speech after convincing Merlyn (John Barrowman) to spare Brick's (Vinnie Jones) life, even though the gangster was responsible for the death of Merlyn's wife.
Brick (Vinnie Jones) isn't done with Starling City just yet.
The criminal mastermind has terrorized the world of Arrow for two episodes, puling such ambitious villain moves as taking over The Glades, kidnapping government officials and giving Laurel (Katie Cassidy) a beating (even though he doesn't "like to hit" women.)
