It’s the role that speeds its way to a starring lead.
Talk of the second season for “Arrow” has been ensuing weeks rife with the certifier that a cameo introduction of superpowered speedster the Flash will don a modern live action appearance for tv audiences. Green Arrow, the main hero alias of Oliver Queen the CW series is built around, and Flash are both page progenitors out of DC Comics and while the teaming history between the two there is not as prolific as Arrow and Green Lantern, the two Justice League members have crossed paths and words and alliances enough to make the televised meet viable.
Although the Flash cameo has been giving entertainment pieces the solid knowledge of a three episode storyline, it was only last week that announced “Glee” alum Grant Gustin won the part of Barry Allen.
Deadline reports Allen’s work being a forensic scientist, a consistency in the comics, will bring him to Starling City.
Gustin’s signature for playing the part of the Flash carries on more gleeful career moves. “The Flash” is set to become a new series for the CW, the first superpower hero show for the network since “Smallville”.
The Virginia–native has starred in “Glee” for three seasons from a first appearance in 2011. Prior to joining Fox’s music-oriented drama-comedy sensation, Gustin was a regular on "90210".
