According to comicbook.com, The Unit star Demore Barnes has been tapped to guest star as Henry Hewitt, aka Firestorm villain Tokamak in the second season of The Flash. The actor joins a number of comic book villains that are set to make their small screen debut in the upcoming season, including Dr. Light and Atom-Smasher.
Here’s the official character description by the CW.
It also looks like we’re getting yet another speedster this season, as TV Line reports that newcomer Violett Beane has been cast as Jesse Chambers, who goes by Jesse Quick in the comics. The character will recur throughout this season, and is described as “a brilliant but quirky college student who gets caught up in the battle between The Flash and Season 2 Big Bad, Zoom.“
Jesse is the third speedster that has been confirmed to appear in the second season of the hit TV series, following the introduction of Teddy Sears as Jay Garrick, and Keiynan Lonsdale as Wally West.
The Flash returns October 6 on The CW.
