‘Arrow’ – Doug Jones Cast As Deathbolt


Actor Doug Jones has been cast as Jake Simmons, a.k.a. Deathbolt. Jones makes his debut as Deathbolt in the upcoming 19th episode of ‘Arrow,’ titled “Broken Arrow.”

Deadbolt was first introduced in All-Star Squadron #21 back in 1983. He has the power to manipulate electricity and was known as “the living battery.” According to IGN, Simmons will “be a metahuman with the ability to harness and weaponize plasma energy” on ‘Arrow.
