Summer Glau To Join Cast of ‘Arrow’ Season 2 as Adversary Isabel Rochev

television-news-and-talkSeason two of Arrow has started production and it has been said that we can expect more DC characters to be appearing for the sophomore season. Well today we have received word of one of those additions. Summer Glau (Firefly, Serenity, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, Dollhouse, Chuck, Alphas) will be guest starring in the coming season as a mysterious new villain in Starling City. She will be playing Isabel Rochev, who is described as a “beautiful and dangerous Vice President of Acquisitions for Stellmoor International, a company looking to take over Queen Consolidated.

Isabel Rochev first appeared in the Green Arrow Vol. 4 comic series and her name has appeared on the “list” of people who Oliver Queen’s father had written in the mysterious book that became the source of Oliver’s targets in season one. As much as it is great to see the addition of a familiar name with some “geek cred,” Glau also has a “kiss of death” that she brings with her. Because shows seem to be cancelled once she comes on. Or at least it feels that way at times. Let’s hope that it is just a coincidence and Arrow will continue to be a hit series. (Source: TV Line via Blastr)

    You’re a f***ing genius!
    The more I think about it, the more I think Arrow’s producers have an evil plan: they hired Summer Glau because they want to ruin a successful tv show and put the cast and crew out of work at the end of the season; not to mention they won’t get money anymore themselves.

    That or the curse thing is complete nonsense and fortunately for Summer Glau and her fans producers know better and hired Summer Glau because they think she’s a good actress and Arrow will get a new set of rather loyal sci-fi/geeky fans.

    The only curse is the internet being filled my supersticious morons.

    • I don’t know if I would say genius, but thanks.

      Hey, I like Summer Glau too, but you have to admit she either has a “curse” or just bad luck. The last few shows she has appeared on hav ended up cancelled. I hope that doesn’t happen here.

      Oh, and I was just having fun. Take it easy.
