ARROW: GLEE’s Grant Gustin Cast as Flash

September 13, 2013 by  

ARROW has found its Barry Allen/Flash in former GLEE star Grant Gustin, a rep for the show confirms. Gustin has been booked for three episodes, one of which will be a backdoor pilot for a potentially new series.

Per the show’s official description of Barry, he is 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.”

“When we first meet Barry Allen, he’s just a forensic scientist working for the police department,” ARROW executive producer Andrew Kreisberg told reporters over the summer. “He’s just an ordinary man when we meet him. As we always do on ARROW, we try to keep things as grounded and realistic as possible. And that is a way the audience will get introduced to Barry and get to know him a little bit faster.”

“I think that’s part of the fun for the audience for the ride: to see how we do our ARROW take on the Flash legacy,” Kreisberg added. “I think some of it will feel very familiar and some of it will feel hopefully fresh and exciting. The same way we approached ARROW is the same way we’re approaching Barry.”

ARROW’s second season kicks off Wednesday, October 9th at 8 PM on The CW.
