The 100 star Richard Harmon joins the cast of CW’s The Flash, where he’ll be playing a new Captain Boomerang.
The Flash has cast The 100 alum Richard Harmon to play Owen Mercer, aka villain Captain Boomerang, in the upcoming ninth and final season
“A new post-Crisis Captain Boomerang has recently been released from Iron Heights with a chip on his shoulder,” per the official description. “But the twinkle in his eye disguises a dangerous and violent threat to Central City.”
Arrowverse fans will remember that Captain Boomerang previously appeared in Season 3 of Arrow, played by Nick E. Tarabay; the character was killed off, though, in Season 5.
Harmon, who will recur on The Flash, is no stranger to The CW: He played John Murphy on the post-apocalyptic sci-fi drama The 100, appearing in all seven seasons. His other TV credits include Smallville, Fringe and The Secret Circle.
The Flash‘s final season was announced last month. The 13-episode Season 9 is slated to debut early next year; no premiere date has been set.
Based on the characters from DC, The Flash is from Bonanza Productions in association with Berlanti Productions and Warner Bros. Television, with executive producers Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter.
