Re: Arrow -- Season 3 News, Rumors, Spoilers, Castings

Um, hello, Brandon Routh is a movie star
Spoiler:

He did say he would do it but maybe they thought he would have cost too much. Never know though. He enjoys the character.

Re: Arrow -- Season 3 News, Rumors, Spoilers, Castings

If there was no long running arc for an actor like Neeson and things switched up mid-season, much like this season's 24, then it would be very difficult to schedule his time.

Re: Arrow -- Season 3 News, Rumors, Spoilers, Castings

I wonder if Arrow is going to have a 500 year old Ra's al Ghul who is essentially immortal due to Lazarus Pits, or if they are going to go a more realistic route like Nolan's Ra's. Arrow has had other supernatural stuff like the Mirakuru, so who knows.

Great looking preview. Can't believe the summer is almost over and it's Fall again.

Re: Arrow -- Season 3 News, Rumors, Spoilers, Castings

yeah, they didn't go cheap. they went realistic. neeson is a movie star. he's not going to wind up on a tv show. he's too busy.
He returned to voice Qui Gon Jinn for a couple episodes of Star Wars: The Clone Wars so it's not like he's against doing TV type things when available.

spending a day or two doing voice work for a cartoon is not even remotely similar to doing a live action television show.

Look out Roy Harper, Thea Queen has her eyes on a new man.

The Carrie Diaries alum Austin Butler has joined the third season of The CW's Arrow in a recurring role, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. He first appears in the seventh episode.

Butler will play Chase, a charismatic DJ whose talent and wiles catch the attention of Thea (Willa Holland). Their professional relationship will quickly blossom into a romance.

At the end of season two, Thea ended her tumultuous romance with Roy, teaming up with her biological father, Malcolm Merlyn (John Barrowman). "Thea is going through something pretty crazy," Holland hinted at Comic-Con. "All I can say is I've been hitting the gym a little bit."

Butler is the latest addition in an Arrow guest cast that includes Ra's al Ghul (Matt Nable), the Atom/Ray Palmer (Brandon Routh), Wildcat/Ted Grant (J.R. Ramirez), Felicity’s mother (Charlotte Ross), Maseo (Karl Yune), Katana (Rila Fukushima), a new Count Vertigo (Peter Stormare), Felicity's college ex (Nolan Funk) and Mark Shaw/Manhunter (David Cubitt).

Butler is repped by WME and Anonymous Content. Previously, he starred for two seasons in The Carrie Diaries as young Carrie Bradshaw's love interest Sebastian Kydd and appeared in Switched at Birth and Life Unexpected. Butler recently completed filming on Adam Massey's The Intruders and Kevin Smith's Yoga Hosers opposite Johnny Depp.

Nick Tarabay has joined the third season of The CW comic-book drama in a recurring role, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed. He will appear in the seventh and eighth episodes, the latter serving as part of a two-hour Arrow and The Flash crossover event.

Tarabay has been cast as Digger Harkness, also known as DC villain Captain Boomerang. In the comics, Captain Boomerang is an enemy of The Flash, has ties to the Suicide Squad and his weapon of choice is a specialized boomerang. When he debuts on Arrow, he will be an ex-ARGUS operative, who is skilled in martial arts and espionage, with a thirst for vengeance against his former employers, as EW first reported.

Tarabay, who was Ashur on the Starz series, is the latest Spartacus grad to board the Arrow universe, joining the likes of Manu Bennett, who plays Slade Wilson/Deathstroke, and Katrina Law, who is Nyssa al Ghul.

He is the latest addition to an Arrow guest cast that includes Ra's al Ghul (Matt Nable), the Atom/Ray Palmer (Brandon Routh), Thea's new love interest (Austin Butler), Wildcat/Ted Grant (J.R. Ramirez), Felicity’s mother (Charlotte Ross), Maseo (Karl Yune), Katana (Rila Fukushima), a new Count Vertigo (Peter Stormare), Felicity's college ex (Nolan Funk) and Mark Shaw/Manhunter (David Cubitt).

Tarabay, whose other credits include Star Trek Into Darkness, TV's Crash and The Sopranos, is repped by Abrams Artists and manager Brian Meadavoy. Arrow returns Oct. 8 on The CW.

Re: Arrow -- Season 3 News, Rumors, Spoilers, Castings

Why is Captain Boomerang going to be on Arrow instead of the Flash? This makes no sense.

Re: Arrow -- Season 3 News, Rumors, Spoilers, Castings

If anyone here is waiting for Arrow season 2 to appear on Netflix, it's been delayed until October 8th, the date of the season 3 premiere.

The BD is out, but it's currently in the $40+ range.

Yeah, I didn't read the article before posting. The article says it's a 2 hour crossover episode event with both Arrow and Flash. So I guess that makes a little more sense, although Captain Boomerang is kind of a weak villain to use for a crossover to challenge both heroes. Gorilla Grodd would have made a better crossover event.

It's a pretty great Blu-ray combo set and Best Buy has an awesome Lenticular slipcover exclusive to them.

'Arrow': Vinnie Jones Joins Season 3 as DC Villain
12:02 PM PDT 10/20/2014 by Philiana Ng

Arrow has snagged British actor Vinnie Jones in a multiepisode arc as a DC Comics villain, The Hollywood Reporter confirms.

Jones, who previously appeared in TV's Elementary and The Cape, has been cast as Danny "Brick" Brickwell, a gang leader. He begins his three-episode trek in episode 10.

In DC lore, Brick is a metahuman whose stony skin grants him invulnerability and super-strength. His success as an underworld kingdom is due mainly to his peerless criminal mind rather than his superhuman abilities. This marks the first time the character will be featured in a live-action property.

Jones is the latest addition to an Arrow guest cast that includes Ra's al Ghul (Matt Nable), the Atom/Ray Palmer (Brandon Routh), Thea's new love interest (Austin Butler), Digger Harkness/Captain Boomerang (Nick Tarabay), Wildcat/Ted Grant (J.R. Ramirez), Felicity’s mother (Charlotte Ross), Maseo (Karl Yune), Katana (Rila Fukushima), Felicity's college ex (Nolan Funk) and Mark Shaw/Manhunter (David Cubitt).
Jones is repped by Innovative Artists and Elevate Entertainment. Arrow airs 8 p.m. Wednesdays on The CW.

And she'll officially be called "Black Canary".

I like that she's wearing the blonde wig, just like the old Canary used to do.
