Havenless - 2/10/2014, 6:48 PM
It says right in the article who he plays....
Arrowhead77 - 2/10/2014, 6:49 PM
Typical CW hiring pretty people who have no acting talent! Smh...







Oh, wait...he is a great actor! Awesome find. Where has this guy been the last few years?
gastitdk - 2/10/2014, 6:55 PM
@Lemons Professor Thawne has already been cast, he'll be played by Rick Cosnett
darklighter1 - 2/10/2014, 7:16 PM
Batman! Seriously people...does anyone ever even actually read the articles or do you just look at the pictures?
Lemons - 2/10/2014, 7:16 PM
@gastitdk OH lol. I might have missed that.
DCeddie - 2/10/2014, 7:39 PM
I'm always happy when a teen heartthrob looking person ISN'T the latest addition...
Wolf38 - 2/10/2014, 7:45 PM
Tom Cavanagh is kind of like a legend, since Ed has never and may never get a home video release. Tom, Julie Bowen, etc. Anyway, I'm excited for Flash.

Also, Candice Patton has a sort of similar look to Katie Cassidy from Arrow. At least to me, subconsciously there is some resemblance. Maybe I have too much time on my hands...lol.
Firgosaurus - 2/10/2014, 7:46 PM
He's the CEO of STAR Labs.
Super12 - 2/10/2014, 7:47 PM
Love this guy! Ed was great and he was awesome in scrubs. I like these castings so far
SnapperCarr - 2/10/2014, 7:52 PM
Nice casting, but I wonder why they changed his name from Garrison to Harrison.
riseofloganX36 - 2/10/2014, 7:59 PM
So is this really ganna be called flash or is it called speedy or something? Is he ganna be a teennager wearing a red back pack with a lighting bolt on his back pack and he dosen't run fast the intire show/ Is he ganna have a costume?

NUFF said BUB!
MightyZeus - 2/10/2014, 8:20 PM
Sounds good to me. The casting has been good so far.
CaptShipwreck - 2/10/2014, 8:40 PM
He's cool , good for him ...hope it's like a Trevor role
JasonBlue - 2/10/2014, 8:41 PM
Good actor, good news. Let's hope the chemistry between Iris and Barry is amazing cause we need a giant female following to make Flash a success.
LewisAGarcia - 2/10/2014, 8:42 PM
Tom is a pretty funny dude. Those unfamiliar with him should check out the podcast he does with Michael Ian Black.





soforizo - 2/10/2014, 8:53 PM
I don't know this guy, but just saw some random clips and he looks good. I hope this show makes it and is good (at least as much as Arrow). So many ways to f'ck it up.
BatmanFTW - 2/10/2014, 9:41 PM
He kind of looked like Plastic Man to me
mgeoff88 - 2/11/2014, 12:22 AM
Dan! He was hilarious on Scrubs as J.D.'s older brother.

That's awesome he'll be on The Flash show!

All I could think of was "Your milkshake, I drink it up!"
SuperSomething616 - 2/11/2014, 2:10 AM
Reverse Flash...Professor Zoom callin it!!!
HecticHector - 2/11/2014, 4:09 AM
This show can't come fast enough!
henchmen - 2/11/2014, 5:31 AM
@SuperSomething616

You'd be wrong for two reasons.
1. Reverse Flash has already been cast
2. It says right in this article that he is going to be the head of S.T.A.R. Labs.
jlabatman - 2/11/2014, 9:08 AM
Not a bad choice!
Mike89 - 2/11/2014, 12:14 PM
Reverse Flash/Professor Zoom?
Tainted87 - 2/11/2014, 1:13 PM
This guy ALWAYS plays the douchebag.
