Hello there, my friends! As you probably know, I rarely write about castings in film/television. The last time I did was for Tommy Flanagan joining “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” and Finn Jones being cast as Iron Fist in the show of the same name. And that was in… February. Yeah, I don’t do this too often. However, when a casting intrigues/interests me, I feel like writing about it. So let’s talk about this thing.
Yesterday it was announced that Tom Felton, famous for playing Draco Malfoy in the “Harry Potter” movies, has joined the cast for season 3 of the CW’s popular superhero show “The Flash”. As someone who grew up with the “Harry Potter” films, I know that Felton has some acting chops behind him. I also thought he was pretty good in his minor-ish role in “Rise of the Planet of the Apes”. This is also exciting because I am actually a pretty big fan of this show. Some of you might’ve noticed me live-tweeting some stuff from the show when I was catching up on it a short while back. So yeah… these are some exciting news. Apparently Felton will be playing the character of Julian Dorn, a CSI for the Central City police department who thinks that Barry (Grant Gustin) might be more than meets the eye. Also, season 3 will apparently be adapting the “Flashpoint” storyline from the comics… a lot of stuff going on for this thing. Season 3 is set to premiere on October 4th of this year.
So what are your thoughts? Are you a fan of the show? And are the news of the addition of Tom Felton exciting to you? Leave any and all thoughts in the comments.
Have a good one!
