Arrow fans! There are some fresh new faces making their way to Starling City. I’ll start with the recent cast member to join Season 4.
CBR reports that actor Alexander Calvert (Bates Motel, The Returned) has joined the cast, playing DC comic book villain Lonnie Machin, aka Anarky. It’s a recurring role for Calvert, who will appear in the second episode of ‘Arrow’ Season 4.
Here’s the official character description: Lonnie Machin (AKA Anarky) is a deranged freelancing criminal who is willing to do whatever it takes to impress a potential employer.
According to Entertainment Weekly, Echo Kellum (Ben and Kate) has also joined the cast in the recurring role of Curtis Holt, the alter ego of Mr. Terrific. Kellum will appear in the second episode of Season 4.
On Arrow, Holt is “a technological savant and inventor,” an employee at Palmer Technologies under Felicity Smoak’s (Emily Bett Rickards) supervision. At the panel for ‘Arrow’ at Comic-Con, executive producer Marc Guggenheim revealed that this version of Mr. Teriffic will be gay.
In the comics, Mr. Terrific is Michael Holt, an Olympic-level athlete with a gifted intellect who becomes a member of the Justice Society of America after the death of his wife and unborn child.
Another villain is heading to Starling City.
TVLine reported that actor Neal McDonough (Agent Carter, Captain America, Justified) has been tapped to play Damien Darhk in Season 4.
The character is described as “a mysterious and sophisticated villain, and an adversary of the late Ra’s Al Ghul. Now the leader of his own clandestine group, this cunning foe will prove to be one of the Arrow’s greatest challenges.”What do you guys think about this latest addition to the cast
