We missed this news last week, but we're reporting it now.
CW announced last week that they've cast Robbie Amell, best known as being Arrow star Stephen Amell's cousin and the lead of CW's cancelled The Tomorrow People, to play Ronnie Raymond. Raymond will be a recurring character on the show, and will be introduced as the thought to be deceased fiance of Danielle Panabaker's Caitlin Snow.
DC Comics fans will recognize Raymond as controlling half of the superhero Firestorm. In the comics, Firestorm's powers only activate when Raymond and a second person (originally Professor Martin Stein, and later Jason Rusch) merge into the Firestorm matrix. In the comics, Killer Frost (Caitlin Snow's alter ego) requires Firestorm's energies to stay alive, which could make things difficult for Snow and Raymond in the Flash.
Ronnie Raymond will debut in The Flash's third episode.
