‘Flash’ Adds ‘Battlestar’ Favorite Katee Sackhoff for Mini ‘Arrow’ Crossover
She isn’t the first Battlestar alum to make her way to the Arrow-verse, but she might be our favorite. Starbuck herself, Katee Sackoff will recur on Season 4 of The Flash, in the process adding a little extra Arrow crossover before the big event.
Per Entertainment Weekly, current Longmire (and Star Wars Rebels) star Sackhoff will take the role of DC villainess Blacksmith, or “Amunet Black,” described as “a steely and badass boss of an underground black market for supervillains. Amunet uses every means possible, including the long list of metahumans under her thumb, to ensure her illicit enterprise thrives.”
Sackhoff will appear in Season 4’s fifth episode, “Girls Night Out,” which will also feature Arrow star Emily Bett Rickards in her role as Felicity Smoak (welp, guess she made it off the island). Sackhoff more or less tipped a hand to her role over the weekend, tweeting out a script cover that some deduced as belonging to The Flash, before deleting the post.
Elsewhere of The Flash Season 4, we know that The 100 alum Neil Sandilands will play new big bad Clifford “The Thinker” DeVoe, Danny Trejo will play Earth-19 bounty hunter and Gypsy (Jessica Camacho)’s father “Breacher,” Kim Engelbrecht will play DC engineer “The Mechanic,” and Hartley Sawyer will play DC’s Elongated Man. Britne Oldford’s Peek-a-Boo will be back for October premiere “The Flash Reborn,” and Season 3 star Tom Felton has stepped down as series regular.
We’ll hear more in the coming weeks, but what other additions might The Flash Season 4 bring?
