THE FLASH Casts Tom Felton as Julian Dorn
Let's just hope that magical curses aren't a part of the new timeline.
TVLine has revealed that the CW series The Flash has cast Tom Felton in the role of Julian Dorn, a brand-new character that will be a series regular for Season 3. Dorn is expected to appear early in the season.
According to the article, Julian Dorn is "a fellow CSI at the Central City Police Department who suspects there’s more to Barry Allen than just his good guy reputation."
Felton, 28, is best known as Draco Malfoy in the Harry Potter film series. In addition, he's also appeared in the movies Risen, Rise of the Planet of the Apes, Get Him to the Greek, Anna and the King, and The Borrowers.
Season 3 will explore the DC Comics event storyline Flashpoint, which was confirmed by star Grant Gustin posting on Twitter "We're definitely doing this FP [Flashpoint] thing our own way. I've read Flashpoint, I've seen the amazing animated film. This will be its own thing."
In the five-issues limited series by Geoff Johns and Andy Kubert, Flashpoint explores an altered DC Universe in which only Barry Allen seems to be aware of significant differences between the regular timeline and the altered one, including Captain Cold as Central City's greatest hero, the Justice League not existing, and a Thomas Wayne version of Batman who spends his days "running Wayne Casinos."
The Flash returns to The CW for Season 3 on October 4, 2016 at 8:00 p.m. EST.
