Well this is certainly interesting, in a cool way that is. The Hollywood Reporter has reported that the original Flash/Barry Allen from the early ’90s Flash series, John Wesley Shipp, has been cast in a mysterious role. They are also saying if The Flash is picked up for series, then Shipp will be a recurring character.
So who could he be playing? Possibly as Jay Garrick, the original golden age Flash? There are no other details available, as they are being kept a secret, for now. Just when we thought the casting was near its end, we given this little bonus. (Source THR)
