Jimmy Akingbola has been cast on Arrow Season 4 as Baron Reiter aka Baron Blitzkreig, a recurring role that will be adversarial for Oliver Queen.
Akingbola is well known in the UK for his role on their popular series Holby City. As Reiter, he'll be a prominent player in flashbacks.
In the comics, Reiter is the leader of the group Shadowspire and in league with a large corporation called Symbolix.
Akingbola becomes the latest addition to the Arrow Season 4 cast after Neal McDonough joined as Damien Darhk, Echo Kellum signed as Mr. Terrific and Alexander Calvert climbed on board as Anarky.
The villains side of things is definitely shaping up nicely, don't you think?
