Robbie Amell Joins The Flash!

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

One mystery I cannot figure out is why some people come into our lives and why some people go. Others become a part of you. Some friendships feel like they'll last forever and others end far too soon. Not every friendship is meant to last forever. What does last forever is the pain when that person is gone.

Harrison: The reason I know all this is because your powers are almost exactly the same as The Flash!
Yellow: Well, I'm not like The Flash at all. Some would say I'm the reverse.
