A casting call is out for CW's The Flash and they're looking for some season long roles to fill.
Please, please, please let this lead to a Jay Garrick casting. The season one finale of The Flash hinted at the Golden Age Flash so I’m super pumped at the possibility of him becoming a season long character.
The CW looks to cast a new season-long role under the name John Clark for “The Flash” season two.
According to TV Line, the casting call seeks “a classically handsome, square-jawed hero in his 30s to early 40s, a slightly cynical man ‘with an edge.'” Though not a character in the comics, John Clark is a letterer for DC Comics, which means the name could be a placeholder for another character yet to be revealed or that the show will create a new character whose name homages the creator.
As per this casting call, it’s unclear whether this new character will be a friend or foe to Barry Allen (Grant Gustin). All considering, however, is it possible that this character will be our Jay Garrick, as teased in the season one finale?
Yesterday, The CW has put out a casting call for Wendy, a “spunky, fun and funny” love interest for Barry in the vein of Felicity Smoak from “Arrow.” Like Felicity, Wendy will be intelligent and well versed in science. She will debut in the second episode of the show’s second season.
“The Flash” returns to The CW this fall.
