Frequent TV guest star Devon Graye, best known for his role as the teenage Dexter Morgan in Showtime’s “Dexter,” has scored the role of Axel Walker/The Trickster in The CW’s “The Flash”.
Mark Hamill played James Jesse, aka. The Trickster, in the 1990s “The Flash” TV series where the character essentially served as the hero’s primary antagonist.
In this version of “The Flash”, Hamill delivers a new take on that role with terrorist and con man James Jesse serving a life sentence in Iron Heights for his crimes as The Trickster years before hand.
It’s then that a young wannabe Trickster named Axel Walker starts following in the original’s deadly footsteps, and Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) must seek the help of James Jesse to bring him down.
The episode will also reportedly see the onscreen reunion of Hamill with original “Flash” star John Wesley Shipp.
In related news, TV Line reports that Charlotte Ross will return as Felicity Smoak’s mother in the eighteenth episode of “Arrow” this season.
