Again, Gratitude! TV Line reports that Spartacus leading man, Liam McIntyre, will be causing quite a storm on ‘The Flash.’ He has been cast as Mark Mardon, the new Weather Wizard, on the CW series. The actor appears in Episodes 15 and 16 when Mark returns to Central City to get justice for his brother Clyde’s death at the hands of Detective Joe West. Just as his sibling could control the weather, Mark will use his powers to go on a rampage to find Joe.
I swear the Executive Producers of ‘Arrow’ and ‘The Flash,’ who are openly fans of Starz’ ‘Spartacus,’ must keep a checklist. In addition to Liam McIntyre (who will again be The Bringer of Rain), they’ve recruited Manu Bennet (as Slade Wilson/Deathstroke), Cynthia Addai-Robinson (Amanda Waller), Katrina Law (Nyssa) and Nick Tarabay (Captain Boomerang).
The Flash returns with a new episode on Tuesday, Jan. 20 at 8/7c.
