SDCC '15: Franz Drameh Is The Other Half Of Firestorm In DC's Legends Of Tomorrow

DC's Legends of TomorrowFranz Drameh who's character has been a big secret since it was announced he was part of the cast finally has it revealed… and it's who I thought it might be. He is playing Jay Jackson, an ex-athlete whose career was ended by injury and now is working as a mechanic. The cat was let out of the bag by DC's Legends Of Tomorrow showrunner Phil Klemmer who said: "Jackson is the last person Professor Stein wants to share Firestorm with."

Now whether Jackson is a new character to the DC Universe or an alias taken on by Jason Rusch when the military started looking into Project Firestrom remains to be seen. My guess is the second one… it's not the first time a character has been recast before becoming a regular (Caity Lotz comes to mind).
