As The Flash and Arrow return from their winter hiatuses next week, we have some new casting tidbits for both shows. According to ComicBook.com, Dexter actor Devon Graye is set to play Axel Walker in episode seventeen of The Flash. Walker is a younger copycat version of The Trickster, an identity previously held by James Jesse. The original Trickster, who will once again be played by Mark Hamill, is an Iron Heights prisoner who helps Barry and Detective West to stop the terrorist threat of Walker. The series marks the live action debut of Axel, who was created by Geoff Johns in 2002. No word on when this episode of The Flash airs.
Fans were introduced to Felicity Smoak’s mother, Donna (Charlotte Ross), in episode five of Arrow this season. That episode finally shed light on Felicity’s background. And now, according to TV Line, Mrs. Smoak will return to Starling City in episode eighteen of the season. There’s currently no word on her role in the episode, which also does not have an airdate yet. Stay tuned for more as we have it,
