Tom Cavanagh Joins CW’s ‘Flash’ as Harrison Wells
The first time we heard Harrison Wells’ name was just before the S.T.A.R. Labs Particle Accelerator exploded in Arrow‘s “Three Ghosts” episode. Now we have a face to go with the name: Tom Cavanagh (Ed, Royal Pains).
He’ll play the shunned scientist in the upcoming Flash series. However, his status might change once he realizes what he’s created in Barry Allen.
It appears we’ve got a series! Barry Allen (Grant Gustin), his father figure in Detective West (Jesse L. Martin) who, like Barry, believes that his father is innocent of his mother’s murder, a best friend in Iris West (Candice Patton), potential foes in Caitlin Snow (Danielle Panabaker) and Eddie Thawne (Rick Cosnett), and now perhaps a mentor in Harrison Wells?
Only time will tell, but things are looking up! The CW is expected to bring Flash to series in fall of 2014.
