Original '90s TV 'Barry Allen' John Wesley Shipp Joins THE FLASH

That's right, the man who played Barry Allen/The Flash in CBS' short-lived '90s series is set to return to Central City as part of the upcoming CW series which will see Grant Gustin play the Scarlet Speedster. Who will be playing? Hit the jump for further details!


It has been revealed today that John Wesley Shipp - the actor who played Barry Allen/The Flash in the cult classic '90s series - will guest star in The CW's upcoming Arrow spin-off. As of right now, his role is a mystery, although it's thought that it will become a recurring part if The Flash is ordered to series. My bet? Barry Allen's imprisoned father. Grant Gustin will play the titular hero, with Candice Patton (Iris West), Jesse L. Martin (Detective West), Carlos Valdes (Cisco Roman), Daniele Panabaker (Caitlin Snow), Rick Cosnett (Detective Eddie Thawne) and Tom Cavanagh (Harrison Wells) all joining him. Who do you think Shipp will be playing in the series?
