The CW’s The Flash has just cast a big role. Insurgent‘s Keiynan Lonsdale will play the role of Wally West. In the comics, Wally is Iris West’s nephew who ends up taking on the alias Kid Flash and became a founding member of the Teen Titans. Later, he took on the mantle of The Flash after Barry’s death.
“Just like when we met Grant for the first time, we instantly knew Keiynan embodied all the heart and courage of a hero,” The Flash’s executive producer Andrew Kreisberg said. “We are so excited to be bringing this much-beloved character onto the show.”
Lonsdale will join the show when it returns on October 6.
