Seth Gabel to Portray Major Villain on Arrow

by at . Comments

Arrow has targeted Seth Gabel for a major guest-starring role.

The former Fringe star has been cast as "Oliver’s deadliest adversary to date," according to TV Line sources, and will come on board this CW smash in early 2013 as a character based on the comic book villain Vertigo.

While his name will differ from that well-known Big Band, his primary weapon of disorienting and unbalancing his victims will remain unchanged.

Let's hope that they don't put him in one of the many crazy costumes that Count Vertigo has worn over the years in the funny pages. Judging by the producers' good taste so far, I have no worries! Let's get dizzy! Big Bad, FTW!
