The fifth episode of Arrow's third season will delve into Felicy's "secret origin", and The Hollywood Reporter have revealed that Awkward and Glee actor Nolan Funk as been cast for a guest appearance. He'll play Cooper Seldon, Felicity’s hacker boyfriend from her days at MIT. That name sounds familiar, right? Well, it's because he' one from the DC Comics, but seemingly a play on The Big Bang Theory's Sheldon Cooper! Weird. Anyway, he joins a star studded season which includes Brandon Routh as The Atom, J.R. Ramirez as Wildcat, Rila Fukushima as Katana, Peter Stormare as Count Vertigo, David Cubitt as Manhunter and Charlotte Ross as Felicity's mother. Oh, and Ra's Al Ghul! Here's an Instagram post from Emily Bett Rickards relating to this news...

This is some weak ass shiz-nit.

So forget Ra's Al Ghul? Cuz that's what u said. The people who write these articles really have no writing or grammar skills. There's not one Article that doesn't have more than one mistake. I guess the editors never heard of proof reading.

........ Why?

Don't criticize someone's grammar if you can't even spell correctly.
GuardianAngel - 8/28/2014, 5:05 PM
Big Bang Theory is such a shitty show now.
Pasto - 8/28/2014, 5:06 PM
Yeah, "cuz". "u" aren't so bright either.

Another Glee actor in Arrow lol
Dingbat - 8/28/2014, 5:49 PM
I read the word Glee and immediately knew it was something to do with the CW-verse. Your looking in the wrong places for actors and if his character is anything like Sheldon Cooper we're gonna have a problem.

I don't want to judge too harshly though. Grant Gustin turned out fine.

@M0D0k And yet there is going to be a flash show in October. He will be played by another glee actor who did a great job as Barry Allen in Arrow!
IcemanX - 8/28/2014, 5:58 PM
He was one of the students in X-Men 2 and he was in Riddick
Marxman12 - 8/28/2014, 6:04 PM
How many frickin Glee actors do we need in Arrow? Seriously. F[ri]ck Glee.
MrFridayNights - 8/28/2014, 6:10 PM
Nolan Dunk lol what a stupid name
MexicanSuperman - 8/28/2014, 6:12 PM
@DrDoom, haha. I think he looks weird but at least he looks creepy.

xStarLordx - 8/28/2014, 6:20 PM
So it's one of those episodes.
ComicsBornAndBred - 8/28/2014, 6:35 PM
Um frat fail for Arrow season 3. You guys were on a role until tis
McGee - 8/28/2014, 6:43 PM
He could have been DC villain the Calculator!
BlackIceJoe - 8/28/2014, 7:18 PM
I have an idea how about stop getting people from Glee. I'd prefer more from Spartacus or Prison Break instead. I even have another idea how about thinking outside of those three shows.
blackandyellow - 8/28/2014, 8:19 PM

I was in a fraternity in college and I can assure you that we didn't spontaneously break out into song and dance.
JohnWilkesBooth - 8/28/2014, 8:26 PM
The guys who plays Green Arrow is without a doubt the WORST actor I've ever seen. I've watched the entire season of Arrow (purely because I'm a huge comic book fan), and whenever Oliver comes round, it is PURE CRINGEWORTHY. How in Gods name did this fuuuckface get the job? The producers must of been smoking crack while this happened...
ComicsBornAndBred - 8/28/2014, 8:28 PM
@blackandyellow when did I da he'd do that? I just don't like Sheldon cooper reference. I meant to say frat fail not frat. Typing to fast
blackandyellow - 8/28/2014, 8:45 PM

I thought you went that Glee shit was what fraternities do.
dracula - 8/28/2014, 8:57 PM
I don't know who this guy is so as long as he is good im ok with this
ComicsBornAndBred - 8/28/2014, 8:59 PM
@blackandyelloe na man I got friends in fraternities. I [frick] with frats haha. Nothing against them
typicalfanboy - 8/28/2014, 10:31 PM
so many models go to MIT. it's baffling.
typicalfanboy - 8/28/2014, 10:33 PM
also I'm black and was in an all black frat and we did break out into dance often. not necessarily song.
ScionStorm - 8/28/2014, 10:47 PM
I forgot he did Glee. The last thing I remember him was as that nerd who dated Claudia in Warehouse 13.
