EDGE OF TOMORROW's Franz Drameh Joins THE FLASH/ARROW Spinoff As 'Jay Jackson'

Well, this character's true identity is being kept under wraps for now, but whichever DC superhero he's revealed as, he will be played by Franz Drameh who you may recognize from Edge Of Tomorrow.

It's speculation time! Reports are coming in that Franz Drameh (Attack The Block, Hereafter, Edge Of Tomorrow) has joined the cast of the CW's Arrow/The Flash spinoff show. His character has the good old fashioned alliterative secret identity name of Jay Jackson, but the DC superhero he's actually playing remains a mystery. Could it be Static Shock? Black Lighting perhaps?

We do have some details on this Mr. Jackson, as according to the official press release he'll be a "former high school athlete, whose pro-career was derailed by injury. Now making ends meets as an auto mechanic, Jay will come to have a surprising affiliation to the S.T.A.R. Labs crew." That makes him sound a LOT like Cyborg, but with that character expected to make his big screen debut in Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, is that likely?

Whoever he turns out to be he'll join Arthur Darvill (Rip Hunter), Ciara Renée (Hawkgirl), Brandon Routh (Ray Palmer/The Atom), Wentworth Miller (Leonard Snart/Captain Cold), Dominic Purcell (Mick Rory/Heat Wave), Victor Garber (Dr. Martin Stein) and Caity Lotz (?). The new series will air sometime this year.
