jr-ramirez-arrowARROW has filled another important DC role: Wildcat!

A rep for the show has confirmed that J.R. Ramirez (who is currently appearing on STARZ’ POWER) has landed the role of Ted Grant, AKA Wildcat. Ramirez could potentially recur in the role.

According to Deadline (which was first to report Ramirez’ casting), in the ARROW world, Ted Grant is “a former boxer who now runs a gym for underprivileged youth. A man with a mysterious past, he will play a pivotal role in Laurel Lance’s arc this season.” (In the comics, Grant is a mentor to Black Canary…)

ARROW executive producer Mar Guggenheim first shared that Wildcat would make his way to the canvas “later this season” during Saturday night’s Comic-Con DC/WBTV event.

Are you excited to see Ramirez as Ted Grant?
