Billy Crudup played the part of Barry Allen’s father in Justice League but recently departed The Flash due to scheduling conflicts with season two of Apple TV+’s The Morning Show, the series that earned him an Emmy.
In the comics, Henry is wrongly convicted of his wife’s murder. The Flash is rumored to delve into the classic comic book story in which Barry Allen (Ezra Miller) travels back in time to prevent the death of his mother, Nora Allen (Maribel Verdu).
Andy Muschietti is directing The Flash from a script by Christina Hodson. Ben Affleck and Michael Keaton are both on the call sheet to play different versions of Batman, while Kiersey Clemons will play Iris West and Sasha Calle joins the DC Extended Universe as Supergirl.
Livingston rose to fame with the cult classic comedy Office Space (1999) and was nominated for a Golden Globe for his work in HBO’s Band of Brothers (2001). He is repped by UTA.
Variety first reported Livingston’s casting.
