As first reported by TVLine.com, Tom Felton has been summoned forth to join the cast of The Flash as a series regular in the upcoming Season 3. The Harry Potter alumnus will be taking on the role of Julian Dorn, a CSI at the Central City Police Department who begins to have suspicions about our hero Barry Allen. He begins to believe that there is more to Allen than meets the eye, and he obviously wouldn’t be wrong.
Now, I don’t remember a Julian Dorn from the comics, and there are no details on what his role is in the story line. So it will be interesting to see how this turn will play out. Given we have seen him as Draco Malfoy for so long, it will be a little difficult to see him as anything other than a villain. However, even if he joins our hero, I have complete faith in Felton’s talent and ability to make us love him as much as he’s made us hate him in the past.
The Flash returns on The CW on October 4th at 8PM ET.
