Danish actor Casper Crump (The Killing, Tarzan) has been cast as supervillain Vandal Savage in ‘DC’s Legends of Tomorrow,’ according to Variety.
Crump will make his first appearance in the crossover episodes of ‘Arrow’ and ‘The Flash’ before continuing the recurring role on ‘DC’s Legends of Tomorrow.’
Vandal Savage is described as an “immortal, having spent the past 6,000 years moving like a virulent disease through history, whispering in the ears of despots and dictators, all leading to his eventual domination of the world.”
When heroes alone are not enough… the world needs legends. Having seen the future, one he will desperately try to prevent from happening, time-traveling rogue Rip Hunter is tasked with assembling a disparate group of both heroes and villains to confront an unstoppable threat – one in which not only is the planet at stake, but all of time itself. Can this ragtag team defeat an immortal threat unlike anything they have ever known?
