Amell Wednesdays may be gone, but fear not — Amell Tuesdays and Wednesdays are coming your way!
Robbie Amell — cousin to Arrow star Stephen Amell — is set to join The Flash, as Firestorm aka Ronnie Raymond, a maintenance worker at S.T.A.R. Labs who plays in important role in the accident that turns Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) into The Flash. He’ll also play the love interest to Danielle Panabaker, as her character Caitlin Snow’s fiancé.
Grant told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY about his body-hugging uniform and intense training regimen, and we have no doubt that Robbie will join him in the hot bod competition.
“I’m so excited to join forces with Greg Berlanti and The CW again on The Flash, said Robbie who will first appear in the third episode. “Being brought into the DC Universe is a dream, I can’t wait to get started!”
Robbie, who is dating Chasing Life star Italia Ricci, starred in The CW’s short-lived sci-fi series The Tomorrow People in the 2013-14 season, starring as the lead Stephen Jameson. He’s also appeared in Pretty Little Liars and Revenge.
In other casting news, Brandon Routh (Superman Returns) and Devon Aoki will join Arrow in Season 3.
