The Original “Flash” Actor Cast in New Show


“Don’t call it a Flash-back!” Alright that’s as far as I’ll go with Flash-puns.

John Wesley Shipp played Barry Allen/Flash in a short-lived 90’s TV show and now he’s coming back, minus the spandex though.

It has been announced that Mr. Shipp will be brought on to The CW’s revision of the Scarlet Speedster and has been cast in “a mysterious role”  that has a chance to be recurring if it is received well.
