Grant Gustin, who plays as Glee‘s Sebastian, has recently been cast as Barry Allen aka. The Flash in The CW’s Arrow. Gustin is said to appear in episodes 208, 209, and 220.
Barry Allen is described as “a Central City assistant police forensic investigator who arrives in Starling to look into a series of unexplained robberies that may have a connection to a tragedy in his past. A comic book fan boy, Barry is obsessed with the Arrow unaware that working with Oliver and Felicity to solve the crime has brought him right into the dangerous world of the vigilante,” according to a press release.
As we all know by now that Flash will spin-off from Arrow, with Flash appearing in a late episode during Season 2 and branching off to his own series. This is something to be excited about because it means that they are probably serious about giving the rest of their library of heroes a chance to be exposed.
Arrow season two premieres Wednesday, Oct. 9 at 8 p.m. on The CW.
