The Flash makes room for yet another villain and this time he comes in the form of Dominic Purcell. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the former Prison Break star is set to play a pyromaniac named Mick Rory whose obsession with fire eventually leads him to team up with Leonard Snart a.k.a. Captain Cold, played by his Prison Break co-star Wentworth Miller.
Purcell’s character ultimately becomes the villain known as Heatwave, who is a member of the Rogues in the DC comic mythology. The said character has also appeared on animated series such as Justice League Unlimited and Batman: The Brave and the Bold.
This marks Purcell and Miller’s first on-screen reunion since playing brothers Lincoln Burrows and Michael Scofield respectively on the FOX series Prison Break, which concluded in 2009.
Meanwhile, Prison Break stars are no stranger to Central City and Starling City. Robert Knepper, who played T-Bag on Prison Break, has already appeared on Arrow and is set to reprise his character The Clock King on The Flash. Additionally Peter Stormare, who played John Abruzzi on the FOX series, is set to reprise his role as Count Vertigo on Arrow.
The Flash premieres Tuesday, October 7 on The CW.
