With filming starting up again for Arrow, casting announcements will be coming often and we have two here for the upcoming second episode entitled The Candidate. The first is Star Trek Voyager's Jeri Ryan playing Jessica Danforth, an old friend of the Queen family that has political aspirations and an apparent target on her head.
While in the third episode we get to meet Jeremy Tell aka Double Down, a metahuman who can turn his playing card tattoos into deadly weapons. Double Down is more closely associated with the Flash, but here he gets to take on Green Arrow. Tell will be played by J. R. Bounre from Teen Wolf.
Arrow returns to the CW on October 7th.
