Has anyone else heard that dear little Draco Malfoy is joining the cast of The Flash? Tom Felton who played Draco Malfoy throughout the Harry Potter movies was announced earlier this summer that he would be joining the cast of The Flash as Julian Dorn, as something of a healthy rival to Berry Allen.
I have really loved The Flash so far, and he has quickly moved up my favored superhero list, others include Supergirl, Wonderwoman, and Harley Quinn (I know she’s a villain). And DC has done very well I think with their TV shows, at least more so than their movie making abilities as of late.
Tom Felton has had an interesting career over the years, while Harry Potter is what he is best know for he was also in Rise of Planet of The Apes (2011), which in my very humble opinion was not his best work. But I did really, really enjoy him in Murder in the First (2014), I found his acting very good, and he played the character well. Murder in the First was a TV special, so my hope is that his skills will translate well again into The Flash.
I think it will be interesting to see him play something that I don’t think we’ve seen from him yet, which is a highly intelligent, adult, CSI character. I am excited to see how his new character blends and meshes with the other characters we’ve come to love. I am also curious to see Berry’s reaction to having a new CSI- is he going to feel jealous that there is someone who can rival his academic mind? Will he see Julian as a threat? Are they going to bash heads every episode, until there is a climax and they decided to either really hate each other or become BFFs? There is a lot they can do, and it makes me really curious how Season 3 of the Flash is going to unfold.
