Ever since Barry Allen appeared on Arrow this year and the events leading up to his transformation into The Flash occurred, the show CANNOT get here any sooner! With the success of Arrow there is no doubt in my mind that The Flash will be just as entertaining! Deadline is reporting that the role of leading lady and love interest (in the comics at least, sorry Felicity) Iris West has been cast! Candice Patton best known for her role as Tori in the TV series The Game, will play the “fast-talking, quick-witted best friend who is also the daughter of Detective West”. The role of Detective West was one of the first parts to filled and the character will be played by Jesse L. Martin (Law & Order) who will act as a surrogate father to Barry. There is also word from Variety that Carlos Valdes, a Broadway star, to play the part of Cisco Ramon better known as the hero Vibe! The two new cast members join Grant Gustin as The Flash, and recently announced, Rick Cosnett as Detective Eddie Thawne, and Danielle Panabaker as Caitlin Snow.
The Flash is set to start filming this March in Vancouver! So Look for more breaking news coming soon on this highly anticipated project!
