Grant Gustin on 'The Flash': "My Favorite Character That I'll Ever Get to Play"

Grant Gustin on 'The Flash': "My Favorite Character That I'll Ever Get to Play"

[WARNING: Spoilers from The Flash pilot, which was screened at Comic-Con in July.]

The Flash star Grant Gustin isn't letting expectations get the best of him.

The 24-year-old Virginia native was admittedly "surprised" when he got the call that he would be The CW's Barry Allen. "I let myself feel the pressure a little bit because I wanted to live up to The Flash and make the fans happy," Gustin, a self-proclaimed Superman fan, tells The Hollywood Reporter.

Known primarily for his Glee arc as disdained Dalton Warbler Sebastian Smythe, Gustin had reservations diving headfirst into an iconic character with deep DC roots. "My Glee experience taught me — to a certain degree — not to listen too much to fan backlash, at least to negative things. Once you have the job, you have the job and you've got to do it," he says.

'The Flash' Producers Promise Unexpected Detours, Surprising 'Arrow' Drop-Ins

'The Flash' Producers Promise Unexpected Detours, Surprising 'Arrow' Drop-Ins

One of fall's flashiest shows is setting the bar high.

The CW's The Flash, a spinoff of the darker and broodier Arrow, takes a lighter spin with Barry Allen, the awkward Central City Police Department forensics expert so enthralled with the Arrow that he'd proclaim himself a fanboy. The change in tone was inevitable. As Arrow viewers glimpsed last fall during the two-hour Barry Allen arc, the man who would don the red suit had a more lively approach to life.
