Who's THE FLASH Spin-Off Gonna Call? GHOSTBUSTERS' Ernie Hudson

Ghosbusters' podcast, Cross The Streams, interviewed Ernie Hudson ("The Crow") and the actor revealed that he is up for a role in CW's The Flash spin-off series, that's starring Grant Gustin as the Scarlet Speedster. Come find out which role Ernie is up for.


At about the 4:50 mark of the Cross The Streams podcast (click here to listen), Ghostbusters' Ernie Hudson discussed his upcoming projects. "In the meantime there's a spin-off of Arrow called Flash," he said. "I'm meeting the creators next week. So, I have to prepare for that." When asked which role he was up for, Hudson replied "His adoptive dad,...or the dad of..."

Before Hudson could disclose any further information, he decides to cut himself off as to not reveal too much. "His (Barry Allen) dad has a problem," is the final morsel of info that slips from his lips. And based on Barry Allen's (Grant Gustin) debut in CW's Arrow we know that Barry's father was incarcerated for the murder of Barry's mother. So, if we take Ernie Hudson's information, and a casting call that Bludhaven Banter posted it's pretty safe to assume that Hudson is up for the role of Detective West, Iris' father.
DETECTIVE WEST – Late 40s to Early 50s – African American – Detective West is an honest, blue-collar cop who’s seen it all. A soulful, funny caring father to Iris, and a surrogate father to Barry, West came up through the foster system himself. He took in Barry after his mother’s murder and his father’s imprisonment. He believes in Barry and supports Barry’s efforts to prove his father’s innocence.
