Clancy Brown Pulls Rank On The Flash

ClancyBrownWhen watching the pilot episode of Fox's Sleepy Hollow, I turned to my girlfriend and said, "Every show is better when they add Clancy Brown." I stand by that… which means The Flash just got better.

THR is reporting that the veteran actor is joining the freshman series as General Wade Eiling that heads a special black ops force that is hunting down the character of Plastique in hopes of using her as a human weapon. This storyline is set for the fifth episode of the season with Kelly Frye (Rake) already cast as Plastique.

In the comics General Eiling was a villain for Captain Atom and the JLA. After learning he had an inoperable brain tumor, he transferred his consciousness into the indestructible body of The Shaggy Man and became the villain know as The General.

The Flash premieres Oct. 7 on The CW.
