The CW network President Mark Pedowitz appeared at the annual Television Critics Association Summer press tour today and announced that “Prison Break” actor turned “Stoker” scribe Wentworth Miller is popping back in front of the camera for the network’s upcoming series “The Flash”.
Miller will join the cast in the recurring role of one of Flash’s enemies Leonard Snart, aka Captain Cold, who essentially has the ability to fire a freeze beam.
The announcement comes as Pedowitz also commented on the joined nature of both “The Flash” and its older sister show “Arrow”:
“In the world we live in, ‘Flash’ and ‘Arrow’ share a similar universe. You will see – organically – characters shifting over, villains shifting over back and forth between ‘Flash’ and ‘Arrow.’ We will be introducing more villains that are part of the DC Comics universe.”
TV Line meanwhile has learned new details about planned crossover episodes. Felicity Smoak will pop up on the fourth episode of “The Flash,” while the eighth episode of both will be a two-hour crossover event.
