Jesse L. Martin, best known for his role at Detective Ed Green on Law and Order, and as a member of the original cast of Rent, has been cast as Detective West in the upcoming CW Flash series. Detective West is the father of Iris West, Barry Allen's traditional love interest in the comics, and will act as a surrogate father for Grant Gustin's Barry Allen in the series.
It was recently confirmed that the pilot script, which was written by Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg and Geoff Johns, was completed, and that casting has begun for the pilot episode. CW has high hopes for the Flash series, which has been in development since last summer.
No word on whether Martin will have a crusty recovering alcoholic as a partner, but my hopes are high.
