Yesterday Deadline reported that British actor Franz Drameh has signed up for a role in the upcoming Arrow/The Flash spinoff show.
According to the report, Drameh will play Jay Jackson, a former High School athlete whose pro career was derailed by injury. Now making ends meet as an auto mechanic, Jay will come to have a surprising affiliation to the S.T.A.R labs crew. The superhero identity however for his character remains a mystery.
Franz Drameh is the latest name to join the expanding cast of the spin-off show which includes Arthur Darvill (Rip Hunter), Ciara Renée (Kendra Saunders/Hawkgirl), Brandon Routh (Ray Palmer/The Atom) and Caity Lotz (In an unknown role) and The Flash’s Wentworth Miller (Leonard Snart/Captain Cold), Dominic Purcell (Mick Rory/Heat Wave) and Victor Garber (Dr. Martin Stein).
Franz Drameh joining the cast is an interesting one, because I’ve at least seen him in two films before (Attack The Block and Edge of Tomorrow) and though it’s been forever since I seen the former, he did make an impression in the latter with the small role he had in the film. I wonder now if his character will fill the final superhero role that’s never been adapted to our television screens before, I guess time will tell.
