We get another casting announcement for The Flash TV series with Tom Cavanagh as Harrison Wells.
The character of Harrison Wells appears to be new, i.e. not a DC Comics character, but was mentioned previously in an episode of Arrow associated with Star Labs.
Deadline has it that Harrison Wells is: "a rock star in the world of physics and the mind and money behind Central City’s S.T.A.R. Labs Particle Accelerator. He becomes a pariah after the lab’s explosion, but he charts his path to redemption when he discovers that his failed experiment had the unintended consequence of creating the world’s fastest man."
Tom Cavanagh joins Grant Gustin as Barry Allen and the Flash, Carlos Valdes as Vibe, Candice Patton a Iris West and Jesse L. Martin as Detective West.
The Flash TV series looks to begin filming soon and has a to-be-announced premiere date.
