Colton Haynes will be joining Arrow as Roy Harper, better known to comic book fans as Green Arrow's sidekick, Speedy. Harper has a long history in the comic books; he's battled heroin addiction, joined the Justice League, and lost a child and an arm during the abominable Justice League: Cry for Justice miniseries. He's perhaps best known for mistaking a dead cat for his daughter after battling some thugs during a drug binge in the award winning Rise of Arsenal miniseries.
According to a report from TV Guide, Arrow's version of Harper hails from the Glades, the poorest part of Starling City, and will act as a love interest for Thea, Ollie's kid sister. Haynes will have a recurring role in Arrow. Haynes previously played Jackson Whittemore in Teen Wolf and had a budding career as an Abercrombie and Fitch model prior to becoming an actor.
