The Flash casts Battlestar Galactica alum Aaron Douglas as The Turtle

“In a surprisingly funny twist, Cisco [Carlos Valdes] has actually been hunting The Turtle the entire series,” executive producer Andrew Kreisberg says.

According to Entertainment WeeklyThe Flash has tapped Battlestar Galactica alum Aaron “The Chief” Douglas to play the DC Comics villain The Turtle in the midseason premiere. Previous incarnations of the character used tricks and devices against The Flash, but on the show, the team hunts down this meta-human who can slow time itself.

“In a surprisingly funny twist, Cisco [Carlos Valdes] has actually been hunting The Turtle the entire series,” executive producer Andrew Kreisberg says. “To Barry’s surprise, everybody knows about Cisco’s hunt for the great white whale, which is The Turtle; he’s the only one who didn’t know about it. We love the idea that there was a villain out there that they knew about, but they just haven’t bothered to tell the audience about yet. All Barry wants to do is get faster, because if he can get faster, he can take on Zoom. He’s going up against a villain who is literally slowing him down. This is one of our best episodes coming back that we’ve ever done. It feels big and emotional.”
