Arrow Casts Jimmy Jean-Louis Possibly As Amazo
With Dylan Neal recently announced to be cast as Professor Ivo in Season 2 of Arrow, it was only a matter of time before we would get Amazo, the android with the ability to duplicate superhero powers in the comic books.
CBR reports that Heroes actor Jimmy Jean-Louis has been cast as "The Captain," but not specifically stated to be Amazo.
"The Captain is a mysterious and deadly associate of Anthony Ivo and has a connection to a mystery of Season 2 called the 'Amazo' -- which will be a familiar name to DC Comics fans," the Arrow production team told CBR.
It remains to be seen whether The Captain will undergo the transformation into the android Amazo, but it is also said Jimmy Jean-Louis will also be involved in a multi-episode arc.
Jimmy Jean-Louis played The Haitian in Heroes.
"Arrow" season 2 premiers Wednesday, October 9th at 8pm ET on the CW.
