Next Man Up – Colton Haynes Steps Up When Arrow Returns

arsenal-arrow-103465Maybe they should change the show's title to Arsenal… at least for a few episodes. It seems while Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) is "away", Roy Harper (Colton Haynes) will have to step up and fill the role as resident archer. Arrow executive producer Marc Guggenheim told Entertainment Weekly:

"One of the things I was very straight with Colton [Haynes] about is I don't think we serviced his character quite as much as we would have liked in the first half of the season," executive producer Marc Guggenheim says. "I'll say the stuff that he's got in episodes 10, 11, and 12, it's pretty danggangbusters.There's one scene in episode 11 between him and John Barrowman that I think is some of his finest work on the show."

So fans of Arsenal and Malcolm Merlyn should be very happy when the show returns on January 21st.
