Looks like Grant Gustin from ‘Glee’ and ’90210′ fame has been cast as Barry Allen AKA The Flash in The CW’s ‘Arrow.’ I’m a little bit surprised with this casting because I expected them to cast someone that is more of Stephen Amell’s peer. Gustin appears to fall more in line with Colton Haynes’ peer group, who plays Roy Harper. I guess The CW wants to have younger supporting cast members for Stephen Amell. For what I recall in the Justice League books, most of the team members are in the same age group.
I’m optimistic with the upcoming second season of ‘Arrow’ since the first season was pretty fun. I can’t wait to see what’s in store for this new season! It’s a pretty interesting show although the acting isn’t excelsior. It’s still entertaining and fun to watch.
The CW’s ‘Arrow’ Season 2 premieres Wednesday, October 9, 8 pm / 7 pm c.
