The CW’s Arrow will add an “irrepressibly charming” new character as a series regular for its upcoming fifth season.
According to TVLine, the new character, tentatively named James, is a “man on a mission” looking to “avenge a tragic, violent loss” from his past. He is considered a man who may “just as easily shake your hand as your best friend or break your neck as your worst enemy – and you never know which one is coming. Either way, he’s more than capable of having a good time as he does it.”
The casting call reveals the show is seeking a physically threatening man in his late-20s or 30s for the role.
