At San Diego Comic-Con last week, the producers of Arrow confirmed that Mister Terrific will be one of the new characters introduced in season four. This version of the character will be homosexual, and he will be working with Felicity Smoak. Now, we know who will be playing him.
According to Entertainment Weekly, Ben and Kate actor Echo Kellum is set to play Mister Terrific, aka Curtis Holt. The character will be a recurring role, and he will make his debut in episode two of Arrow‘s fourth season. Holt is described as “a technological savant and inventor who works at Palmer Technologies under the supervision of Felicity Smoak.”
Of course, Mister Terrific will be one of many new DC characters coming to Arrow this season. The villain Anarky will visit
Starling Star City soon, while the season’s big bad is Damien Darhk, played by Neal McDonough. Expect more announcements to be made soon.
Arrow returns to The CW on October 7th.
