Things seem to be moving right along for casting for The CW’s upcoming Flash television series. Deadline is reporting today that Candice Patton (The Game) has been cast in the role of Iris West. She will play of opposite Grant Gustin (Barry Allen/The Flash) and Jesse L. Martin in the pilot for The Flash.
Patton will be the daughter of Jesse L. Martin’s Detective West. Though details are still sparse, we know that Gustin’s Barry Allen is taken in by West and is kind of a surrogate father to Allen. The Flash will be debuting this fall on The CW. And for those keeping track, yes this is a race change for both West characters, but at the end of the day does it really matter? I certainly don’t think so. (Source: Deadline)
