Get ready, Barry Allen: there’s a new Central City CSI detective hot on your tail! Harry Potter alum, Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy), is set to join The CW’s The Flash as a series regular in season three.
DC Comics fans will be surprised (and delighted?) to hear that Felton’s character is entirely new, invented specifically for the DC TV universe! TV Line has revealed that the actor will play Julian Dorn, “a fellow CSI at the Central City Police Department who suspects there’s more to Barry Allen than just his good guy reputation.”
Will the former Potter villain get on Barry’s bad side, or are we looking at a potential new member of the STAR Labs team? Time will tell!
We recently learned that season three of The Flash will tackle the comics’ famed Flashpoint storyline. Grant Gustin (Barry Allen/Flash) revealed that the show will put its on spin on Flashpoint, so there may be even more surprises in store for comic fans!
Season three of The Flash is set to premiere on October 4th, 2016, on The CW!
