Danielle Nicolet and Hartley Sawyer have both been upgraded to series regulars for the upcoming fifth season of The CW’s “The Flash”.
The very young Jim Carrey-like Sawyer was introduced in the fourth episode of season four as Ralph Dibny, a.k.a. The Elongated Man, and appeared in thirteen episodes of the season.
Nicolet plays Cecile Horton who became a love interest for Joe West (Jesse L. Martin) in the third season and her role grew in the fourth where she developed telepathic powers which helped Barry.
The pair are amongst several key cast changes in the CW DC universe next year which include Keiynan Lonsdale’s Kid Flash departing, Jeremy Jordan’s Winn School being reduced to recurring and Jesse Rath’s Brainiac-5 upgraded to a regular on “Supergirl,” Katie Cassidy’s Black Siren becoming a regular on “Arrow,” and both Matt Ryan’s John Constantine and Jes Macallan’s Ava Sharpe becoming regulars on “Legends of Tomorrow”.
