Currie Graham Crowned in Key Arrow Role

by at . Comments

Currie Graham has been cast in a key role on The CW's Arrow. Crowned, really.

The veteran actor (Suits, Fringe, NCIS: Los Angeles) has been cast as King, the leader of the Royal Flush Gang with whom readers of the comic on which this series is based will be familiar.

Look for this group of criminals, which includes Kyle Schmid as Ace, to premiere on Episode 6 and go up against Stephen Amell's Oliver Queen in a number of battles.

Speaking about the Gang to reporters today, executive producer Andrew Kreisberg referred to the villainous bunch as "our most grounded villains. The relationship that Oliver has with King, the leader of the gang, we're really proud of it."

Arrow - which TV Fanatic HIGHLY recommends - premieres Wednesday night on The CW at 8/7c.
