Last year, CW superhero drama 'Arrow' made a tremendous commitment to casting genre stars in securing its geek cred, tapping everyone from 'Doctor Who' to 'Battlestar Galactica' stars in populating the world of Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell)'s Starling City. That trend continues today in casting fan-favorite 'Stargate SG-1' star Teryl Rothery for a mysterious new role, but who might the former Dr. Janet Frasier play this time around?
