TVLine exclusively reports that Tom Felton has signed up for a series regular on CW’s upcoming third season of The Flash.
Tom Felton will be playing the role of Julian Dorn, a fellow CSI at the Central City Police Department who suspects there’s more to Barry Allen than just his good guy reputation. Felton, whose famously known for playing Draco Malfoy in the Harry Potter films, has recently appeared in Murder In the First and Risen.
As far as casting goes I believe this will pull in some new viewers to the series from those that grew up on the Harry Potter films and now they might check out an episode he will feature in now just to see what it is like/he is like on the show. Quick search suggests that there’s no connection to appearing in DC Comics so it’ll be interesting to see how this character progresses throughout the season and whether or not it’ll be a one season arc only for Felton.
