Two New Faces For Arrow Season 4
Hot off the news that former Holby City star Jimmy Akingbola has been cast as supervillain Baron Blitzkrieg in the upcoming fourth season of Arrow, a further two new cast members have been announced to be joining the cast of the hit superhero show.
Star Trek: Voyager’s Jeri Ryan will join Arrow as a family friend of the McQueen’s, Jessica Danworth, who becomes a series antagonist after her morality makes way for her political ambitions (which sounds like any McQueen family friend ever).
Meanwhile, Teen Wolf’s JR Bourne will appear in one episode as DC villain Double Down. Double Down first appeared in DC Comics in 2001 as an antagonist of The Flash. He was a con man and gambler who received super powers after being handed a cursed deck of cards.
The pair will join fellow new cast members Echo Kellum, Jimmy Akingbola and Alexander Calvert. The new series of Arrow premieres October 7 on the CW in the US.
