Robbie Amell Joins The Flash!

by at . Comments

Robbie Amell is on his way back to The CW. Yes, already.

The former Tomorrow People star has been cast cast in the recurring role of Ronnie Raymond, the fiance of S.T.A.R. Labs scientist Caitlin Snow (Danielle Panabaker).

Ronnie represents one-half of the DC Comics character Firestorm.

Very Angry Stephen

In this version of the character, Ronnie will take a key part in the particle accelerator accident that transforms Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) into the very fast title character.

"[DC Comics Chief Creative Officer] Geoff Johns, Andrew Kreisberg and myself designed the pilot and series to include Ronnie (aka Firestorm) - and to actually have someone with Robbie’s talent playing the role is beyond exciting,” EP Greg Berlanti said via statement. “We can’t wait for viewers and fans of the character to check it out."

The Flash speeds up for the first time on Tuesday, October 7 at 8/7c. 

Amell, cousin of Arrow star Stephen Amell, will debut on Episode 3.

The Flash Quotes

Cisco: That's pretty ironic. The guy specialized in cloning and now he can make Xeroxes of himself.
Harrison: If he was experimenting on himself when he was exposed to the dark matter wave released by the particle accelerator explosion...
Cisco: Meet Captain Clone! Don't worry, I'll come up with something cooler.

Joe: You were wrong.
Barry: I have been wrong a lot this week. You're gonna have to be more specific.
Joe: You said that one of the things driving you to run around out there was that you couldn't help your dad. You can help him. We can. We're gonna figure out who or what killed your mother that night and then we're gonna get your father out of prison. Together.
Barry: Joe, what I said about you not being my father...
Joe: Barry, I know. I know I'm not your father.
Barry: You're right. You're not. You're just the man who kept me fed and in clothes, who sat on my bed at night until I fell asleep because I was afraid of the dark. You helped me with my homework, you taught me how to drive and shave and you dropped me off at college. It sounds a lot like a dad to me.
