“Attack the Block” and “Edge of Tomorrow” star Franz Drameh has joined the cast of The CW’s upcoming “Arrow” and “Flash” TV series spin-off.
Drameh will play a character named Jay Jackson, a former high school athlete whose pro-career was derailed by injury. Now making ends meets as an auto mechanic, he soon comes to have a surprising affiliation to the S.T.A.R. Labs crew after he unexpectedly gains powers.
Though officially the series doesn’t have a title yet, there’s word that “Legends of Tomorrow” is looking to be the show’s moniker with thirteen episodes of the series being ordered for the first season which will premiere early 2016.
Drameh joins a cast that includes Brandon Routh, Victor Garber, Wentworth Miller, Dominic Purcell, Caity Lotz, Arthur Darvill and Ciara Renee. Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg, Marc Guggenheim and Sarah Schechter are executive producing.
