The CW's Flash has cast pyromaniac Heat Wave to join Captain Cold

The CW is keeping the Flash very busy. The speedster will have his hands full with multiple villains trying to wreak havoc on Central City, and now a new member of the Rogues has reared his ugly head: Mick Rory, aka Heat Wave.

As you might suspect, Heat Wave is a pyromaniac. He just loves watching things burn. But he meets his match in fellow baddie Leonard Snart, codename: Captain Cold. The duo have worked together in the DC Comics and will be doing the same on the show. 

Speaking of working relationships, Heat Wave will be played by Dominic Purcell. The actor's best known for his role as Lincoln Burrows on the series Prison Break. Captain Cold's portrayer, Wentworth Miller, also appeared on the show as Burrow/Purcell's brother Michael Scofield. 

Captain Cold will debut in this season's fourth episode, while Heat Wave will join him in episode 10. Another Prison Break actor guest-starring on The Flash is Robert Knepper, who played T-Bag on the Fox drama. This time, he'll be reprising his role as the Clock King, which he originated on Arrow.

It seemsThe Flash is as obsessed with Prison Break alumni as Arrow is with Spartacus.  

What do you think of Purcell as Heat Wave?
