CW has its Scarlet Speedster. TV Guide is reporting that Grant Gustin, best known for his role as Sebastian Smythe on Glee, will play Barry Allen in Arrow. As has been previously stated, Gustin will first appear as Barry Allen in the eighth and ninth episodes this season, where he will have a "profound impact" on Ollie and his shift from vigilante to hero. A third episode later in the season will act as a backdoor pilot for the proposed Flash spinoff.
According to the TV Guide report, Allen will arrive in Starling City to investigate several robberies that might be connected to a tragedy in his past, which probably refers to the death of his mother, which was later attributed to Eobard Thawne AKA the Reverse-Flash.
Having never watched Glee or 90210, we have no idea if Gustin is any good, but we're sure Erik Galston, our resident Glee reviewer, could provide an opinion about the casting.
