According to The Hollywood Reporter, Robbie Amell will be joining the cast of “Flash” as Ronnie Raymond aka one half of Firestorm.
If the last name Amell rings a bell, you guessed it, Robbie Amell is related to Stephen Amell who plays Arrow on CW’s hit DC show. They are in fact cousins. Robbie also appeared on CW’s “Tomorrow People.”
Robbie Amell will make his first appearance on “Flash,” with the third episode as Caitlin Snow’s fiance.
Apparently Ronnie Raymond will have a big part in an accident that turns Barry Allen into the Flash.
Here’s what Robbie Amell had to say about joining the cast:
“I’m so excited to join forces with Greg Berlanti and The CW again on The Flash. Being brought into the DC Universe is a dream, I can’t wait to get started!”
In the comics, Ronnie Raymond and Martin Stein were caught in a nuclear accident which allowed the two to fuse together to create the first Firestorm.
You can catch the first episode of “Flash” Oct. 7 at 8 pm on The CW.
