With the new season of “Arrow” just a few months away it seems like everyday we are getting new information released. The information to me that is the most important is the casting information. Without the right cast you don’t have a very good show. Today it was another huge day for casting news. Let’s start with some of the “Arrow” season four casting news that we already knew about.
A few days ago it was announced that Rutina Wesley will be joining “Arrow” for a multi-episode arc. You may ask your self why does she look familiar but you have probably seen her on the hit HBO show “True Blood” or more recently on the NBC show “Hannibal“. There wasn’t much news on who her character would be until today when Entertainment Weekly was able to get some news. It looks likes she will be playing Liza Warner aka Lady Cop in the DC Comics. As we all know by now the hows do not have to follow what the comics do. It sounds like she will be part of the anti-vigilante task force.
There is of course already a list of people we know are playing certain roles. I have that list below just in case any of you have missed any.
Neal McDonough playing Damien Darhk
Alexander Calvert playing Anarky
Echo Kellum playing Mr. Terrific
Jimmy Akingbola playing Baron Teiter
Jeri Ryan playing Jessica Danforth
Parker Young playing Alex Davis
It was also announced not too long ago that we will be seeing a new love interest for Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell). Now before you start throwing rocks at me Olicity fans keep in mind that this love interest will be in the flashbacks only so the Olicity ship can keep on sailing at full speed. Elysia Rotane has been given the difficult task to play this character.
Just when you thought the season couldn’t get any more people to come on board we got news of another person joining on. Fans of the canceled show “Constantine” had a little bit of good news to cheer about. Matt Ryan who has been casted to bring his character John Constatine to Starling…I’m sorry I mean Star City. As of right now it is looking like it is gog to be for one episode, episode 405 called “Haunted“.
Make sure to have your calendars marked and your DVRs set because this fourth season of “Arrow” is action packed with a bunch of star power.
