Victor Garber (Alias, Argo) has been cast in The Flash as 1 half of the super hero Firestorm, Dr. Martin Stein and Ronnie Raymond become fused together to create the hero. We previously reported that Arrow star Stephen Amell’s cousin Robbie Amell (the Tomorrow People) would be playing Ronnie Raymond, the other half of Firestorm, the nuclear powered super hero.
Also cast in The Flash, Andy Mientus (Smash) will be portraying Hartley Rathaway, a genius ex-STAR Labs employee who loses his hearing, in the accident that gives Barry his speedy powers, and wrecked havoc with the creation of other meta-humans. Hartley becomes Pied Piper, an openly gay member of the super-villain group the Rouges. Hartley left STAR labs due to a dispute with STAR Labs founder Dr. Harrison Wells who is played by Tom Cavanagh (Ed, Scrubs).
Garber and Mientus join are large and growing cast of heroes and villains straight from the comic book source material.
