The CW has finally cast the role of Dr. Martin Stein, who is said to be the brilliant but arrogant nuclear physicist who ends up being merged with a much younger Ronnie Raymond (Robbie Amell) and turned into Firestorm on The Flash.
So who's the lucky gentleman?
Variety reports that Victor Garber (Alias, Sleepy Hollow) has nabbed the role and that the actor will make his debut in the 12th episode of the first season in a recurring capacity.
Here’s a description of the character:
“Martin Stein is described as a brilliant but arrogant nuclear physicist who has sacrified everything, including a marriage, for his work in transmutation. After he discovers the particle accelerator fused him with the younger, more impulsive Ronnie Raymond (Robbie Amell), he races to find a way to separate the two before it’s too late.”
It’ll definitely be cool to see how The Flash will handle the DC Comics superhero, since they’ve decided to go along with the pre-New 52 Universe version of the character. Teenager Jason Rusch is the current other half of Firestorm instead of Stein.
Are you guys excited to see Victor Garber as Dr. Martin Stein on The CW’s The Flash?
