We've always adored 'Arrow''s effort at crowd-pleasing casting, and it seems CW spinoff 'The Flash' has inherited the gift. Following 'Prison Break' alum Wentworth Miller's casting as Captain Cold, onscreen brother Dominic Purcell will also menace 'The Flash' as DC villain Heat Wave, reuniting the two stars.
One year ago, 'Arrow' producers shocked us with news that 'The Flash' would emerge with his own CW series, bring all kinds of superhuman possibilities to the DC TV universe. Now, as 'The Flash' gears up for a Comic-Con 2014 showing and its fall premiere, the metahumans are coming out of the woodwork, first among them 'Prison Break' alum Wentworth Miller portraying DC's Leonard Snart, better known as the villainous Captain Cold!
Before he was the screenwriter of the critically acclaimed 'Stoker,' Wentworth Miller was the lead actor on 'Prison Break,' which is definitive proof that yes, it is entirely possible to completely reinvent yourself in Hollywood. And it looks like Miller's movie writing career is just getting started: he's been hired to adapt the upcoming Richard Parker novel 'Scare Me' for Relativity Media.
