THE FLASH is no stranger to paying homage to the CBS 1990 series — after all the Barry Allen of that show was played John Wesley Shipp, who plays Barry’s father in The CW freshman hit — and in tonight’s episode, “Tricksters,” the series is bringing on Mark Hamill to reprise his role as The Trickster/James Jesse, when a new Trickster pops up and starts creating trouble.
“Just the idea of being asked to play a part decades later,” Hamill joked to reporters after a screening of the hour. “That never happens.”
For Hamill, the decision to appear on The CW’s take was an easy one.
Though the rebooted timeline made it so Wells didn’t have to kill Cisco (in the episode 15 timeline, Cisco discovered that Wells was Reverse Flash), he has someone even more risky on his trail: Barry.
Before the recent PaleyFest panel, I spoke with THE FLASH star Tom Cavanagh (Wells) about the tension within the team, and learning more about Wells…
THE FLASH is bringing on Mark Hamill to reprise his role as James Jesse/The Trickster in Tuesday’s episode of The CW freshman drama. And while fans of the original series may be — rightfully — stoked about the delicious guest spot, THE FLASH star Jesse L. Martin (Joe) may have their excitement beat.
In fact, when I spoke to Martin before the recent PaleyFest panel honoring THE FLASH, not only did he gush about Hamill’s appearance on the series, but he also copped to asking for an autograph…on a fabulous piece of memorabilia.
