John Wesley Shipp back for CW’s The Flash

John_Wesley_ShippAs The Flash show begins to gather speed, those wonderful people at Warner Brothers have announced that John Wesley Shipp, who originally played Barry Allen/The Flash in the original 1990s television series, has joined the cast, and will star in the pilot episode of the upcoming CW series.

Shipp’s role is still somewhat of a mystery, but what we do know is that the character, whoever that may be, is set to be a recurring role in the series.

Ship joins an already impressive cast which includes Grant Gustin (Glee) who first appears in his role as Barry Allen/The Flash in the second season of Arrow, Candice Patton as Barry’s love interest Iris West, Rick Cosnett (Vampire Diaries) as Detective Eddie Thawne aka Professor Zoom, the gorgeous Danielle Panabaker as Caitlin Snow aka Killer Frost, and Jesse L. Martin as Detective Wally West.

Add comic book legend Geoff Johns to the mix as co-writer and it looks like we’re in for yet another cracking comic based series from the guys at CW.
