Based on the number of villains coming to the show, it’s looking like Barry Allen is going to be very busy during the first season of The Flash.
In the series’ latest casting news, EW has confirmed that Greg Finley—whom CW viewers might recognize from Star-Crossed—has joined the show as Tony Woodward, a.k.a. Girder. Finley is set to appear in episodes 6 and 7 as Woodward, whose character description explains that, thanks to the S.T.A.R. Labs explosion, he can now “transform his skin into living metal.”
As for what he’ll be doing in Central City? “The Flash tries to stop Tony when he goes on a crime spree, but this is not the first time Barry Allen has faced Tony—Tony was the bully who used to torment him as a child.”
The Flash premieres Tuesday, Oct. 7 at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
