Confirmation has been received of a surprise casting in the new CW "The Flash" pilot.

The CW's new spin on "The Flash" will now include John Wesley Shipp, who previously played the role of The Flash/Barry Allen in the 1990-1991 "Flash" TV series. Shipp will guest in the pilot as a "mysterious character," with no further details revealed yet. If "The Flash" is picked up as a series, he's rumored to have a recurring role.
 
Should the pilot for some reason not be picked up then plans are being discussed for The Flash to remain as part of the "Arrow" cast.
 
This announcement comes hot on the heels of previous "The Flash" casting news that Tom Cavanagh will be playing S.T.A.R. Labs scientist Harrison Wells. The cast also includes Jesse L. Martin as Detective West, Candice Patton as Iris West, Carlos Valdes as Cisco Ramon, Danielle Panabaker as Caitlin Snow and Rick Cosnett as Detective Eddie Thawne.

Greg Berlanti, fellow "Arrow" executive producer Andrew Kreisberg, and DC Chief Creative Officer  Geoff Johns are writing the "Flash" pilot script.
