TV Insider reports that Carly Pope has signed for up a recurring role on CW’s upcoming fifth season of Arrow.
Carly Pope (whose credits include Popular, 24 and The Tomorrow People) will be recurring as Susan Williams, a journalist from Coast City who comes to Star City ‘looking to make a name for herself’ by targeting Oliver Queen for a big story. What’s interesting for DC fans is that the character in the comics is married to Jim Jordan, the little brother of Hal Jordan aka Green Lantern.
Carly Pope is the latest to join the cast of the upcoming fifth season, joining the likes of Rick Gonzalez (Wild Dog), Josh Segarra (Vigilante), Madison McLaughlin (Evelyn Sharp/Artemis), Chad Coleman (Tobias Church) and Tyler Ritter (Detective Malone) in series regular and recurring roles. Will be interesting with all these references of Hal Jordan/Green Lantern in some capacity will lead to an appearance in a future season or two down the line?
